BENEFITS FOR ATHLETES
We do imagery work and talk about having that innovative mindset of being special. We talk about being in the moment and increasing chaos throughout practice, so when I go into the game, everything is relaxed.
— Russell Wilson on Seattle Seahawks mental conditioning
Mindfulness is the strong mental edge athletes need to go that extra mile. The difference between reaching your goals and coming up short can be a split-second lapse of focus, confidence and/or performance anxiety getting the best of you.
When we are immersed in the present moment and in a state of flow, we perform our best. Mindfulness and meditation provide us with a tangible and scientifically proven way to focus our thoughts and decrease the “head trash” that often comes with high pressure situations.
With mindfulness training you can train your mind to be as prepared for competition as your body is. Learn how to focus more effectively, decrease anxiety and stress, regulate emotions, be more present and increase your ability to respond and react quickly in the moment.
This is why mindfulness and meditation has become popular with elite athletes such as Lebron James, Russell Wilson, Kerri Walsh and Michael Phelps. Our online mindfulness services make it easy for you to achieve the results you want from the comfort of your own home. Call today for more information:(509) 775-6696.
Mindfulness training shifts your focus, which, on a brain scan, activates your prefrontal cortex. Prefrontal cortex activation has been scientifically proven to increase your clarity and focus, and as an athlete you are going to want that extra mindful muscle.
Meditation has been scientifically proven to significantly decrease stress and anxiety, and on a brain scan activates your ENTIRE brain. Not only does it flood your brain with dopamine and serotonin, but it actually changes the way your brain works. The digestible meditation techniques you will learn through Ready Set Mindful will help you positively transform your experience of stress.
