Mindfulness is being fully present in the moment, aware of our thoughts and feelings but not judging them or allowing them to distract ourselves or our athletes. But how can you use the techniques of mindfulness to reduce stress and improve performance for yourself and your athletes?
Learn new tools to recognize and move past negative self-talk while training your brain to embrace mistakes, leading to higher levels of confidence and more positive emotions.
