Thread: Who visualizes or meditates before competing?

  1. #1

    Default Who visualizes or meditates before competing?

    I'm curious to know how many people visualize or meditate prior to practice or competitions...

    Default Re: Who visualizes or meditates before competing?

    I do a TON of visualizations before competing in anything. I used to do a lot before practices as well.

    I do before any competition, especially the night before. I get overly anxious at times and wear myself out before the match even begins or the night before I won't be able to sleep and it helps me relax.

    I've noticed this has happened to numerous people who compete in a wide range of sports. Its emotional fatigue - research has shown that mice in stressful environments [constantly experiencing the fight or flight response] are prone to illness and obesity related to cortisol levels. The best way to leave that anxiety behind is to change the quality of pictures that you are making (or are just happening) in your mind - and as a result changing the way you feel about the outcome of a competition/practice.

    both are very good to do, however I've seen many times where a person will let their thoughts get the best of them.
