Taking time to be mindful is one of the best techniques I have used to help cope with the pressures of playing elite sport. By taking time out to be aware of everything around me, mindfulness meditation has helped me to understand my thoughts and refocus my energy on what’s most important at a given time – the here and now. For any budding or elite athlete, I can’t recommend Smiling Mind more highly. My success has come from staying physically fit and mentally strong.
