– Get inspired – Aflevering 6 (door Orestis Panoulas)
I am sending you a quick and simple 3-minute guided breathing exercise to start your day every morning.
Purpose: Thoughts about the future or past come in our daily life. Accept them, and bring your attention on the present moment/ your breath for those 3 minutes.
What can you achieve with that?: Brain muscle fitness!
A) Your concentration on important info to enhance your performance (ex. identifying the opponents’ body posture before he/she hits the ball).
B) Your focus ability to eliminate distractions and stay present. (ex. what if I lose this set? (distraction) —> Accepting that thought —> Focusing back on the present moment with a deep breath).
Interesting fact: Top athletes like Djokovic, Kobe Bryan, Nico Rosberg Formula 1 Champion (see below) use these techniques to improve their performance.
