How to handle the end of the football season
College football: done and dusted. NFL: done and dusted. The 2021 football season has been quite spectacular. In both sports, there was no dominant force that clearly separated itself from the pack, making the season all the more interesting. But the betting grind is now over after six months of action. What should you do now?
Sure, there’s baseball and basketball to bet on, but if you don’t bet on either sport – or even if you do – there are still some things you should consider doing now that the football season is over.
Tip #1: Withdraw your profit
I hope you were able to make a profit this season. Now is the time to withdraw some of those winnings. A common mistake bettors make is keeping that money in your betting account. Why is this an error? You have worked six months for this profit. I’d like to believe that we’re all in control and displaying perfect behavior by the 2022 football season, but let’s face it: cravings, mistakes and big oopsie moments are always a risk. Maybe you’re hanging out with friends one night, enjoying refreshments, and betting way more than you normally would because “LeBron won’t lose.” Whatever the reason, by keeping these profits in your account for six months, you risk losing them.
What you should do instead
Withdraw part of your profits. Let’s say your initial deposit was $300 and you bumped it up to $600. Keep your original deposit of $300 and withdraw the $300 you made in profit or if you want more of a cushion withdraw just $200 and now your account is $400. You have built your bankroll and protected your profits. If you bet throughout the year, you should always withdraw a portion to keep those winnings intact.
Tip #2: Improve your health to improve your mind
Football season is a chore for content creators and bettors. If athletes can have an off-season to train and improve their skills, why not us? Use this time to work on creating healthy eating habits by eating healthy (less sugar, less processed foods). Maybe start walking every day and hit that 10,000 step count. Aim for 50 push-ups in one setting. Practicing gives you an escape from the betting space and gives you time to recalibrate. This has a positive impact on your cognitive performance. Find what you love to do – swimming, rollerblading, boxing, lifting, yoga – and get started. Really, just find any form of physical activity that you can consistently follow.
Maintaining a healthy diet benefits the brain, as maintaining a healthy weight is important for heart health and the prevention of diseases such as heart disease and obesity, which are known to reduce the size of your body. your brain. Think about it, a healthy life equals a healthy mind. In six months, you’ll be a healthier version of yourself and ready to conquer a new football season.
Tip #3: Live your life with your friends and family
It may sound ridiculous, but I basically live in isolation for six months during football season.
It’s my choice to dedicate my time to something that has now become my job, yes, but it’s something I really love to do — like… LOVE! Sunday brunches, weekends, Thursday night happy hours are not a thing for me during football season.
Well, football is over. Plan your vacation, go to all the brunches, attend all the family/friends gatherings, because in six months it stops again. There was a movie I watched on Netflix called “Yes Day” starring Jennifer Garner. The premise: She and her husband gave the kids a “yes day” to do whatever they wanted. That’s how you have to live during these six months of freedom. Yes to happy hour, yes to the restaurant you’ve always wanted to try, yes to that weekend with your partner – just say “yes” because you’ll often say “no” in September.
