If you want to be able to become calm and centered in pressure situations (like important events or WODs), you have to practice in non-pressure situations first. Meditation is an extremely helpful practice. Quieting the mind, being still, and focusing on the present, is helpful for all of us. The best thing is, you can meditate anywhere.
If you have never tried it, or it’s been a while, take the time this week and give it a whirl.
- See if there are any meditation classes in your area and attend one
- Check out some guided meditations on YouTube, DVDs, apps, etc.
The more you practice, the easier it will be to become calm and cool when you really need to.
