The Way of the Mindful Athlete
This course was originally written for the NY Giants and NY Knicks coaching, medical and player staff. You will learn how to reduce stress on and off the field, simplify your life and stay present for better brain function and optimal performance. The course is meticulously designed to be user friendly. Gwen has created a mindfulness toolbox for Athletes and will cover the 6 major tools for creating a better, more present successful life. These strategies negate the temptation to impede attentiveness and therefore lead to happier lives. The overall goal of mindfulness is simple yet needs constant cultivation. The goal is to be present in the now, not to dwell on or live in tragedy or the past or the uncertainty of the future, which cannot be changed or predetermined. Not living in the present can cause high levels of anxiety and a lack of concentration and poor performance. The only thing you have control of is the NOW so be the best person you can be, on a day to day basis, making the best decisions you can each day and lead a simpler life that is more enjoyable and notice dis-ease before it becomes disease.
