With spring around the corner, it’s time to get out the golf clubs and dust them off. If you have been sitting around during the long months of winter with not too much physical activity, now is the time to be getting your body back into shape. Along with physically moving well again, many athletes now acknowledge that being good at a sport is not just about being good at the physical game, but excelling at the mental one too. After all, you cannot win a gold metal if you think you can’t.
Just as a pro golf coach can guide you through the physical rehearsal, you can improve your game through the mental rehearsal too. Successful athletes and performers carry out the rehearsal in their head of the outcome they want. Members of the Royal family, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Ellen DeGeneres, Albert Einstein, Michael Jordan, Jason Day, and Tiger Woods, as well as many others, have benefited from the power of hypnosis and self-hypnosis to make positive changes in their lives.
You can play your best golf game when you learn how to play the mental game. Hypnosis and self-hypnosis can help you acquire mental skills that can be recalled later to achieve optimal performance. Hypnosis can help you: improve your positive self-talk; overcome fear or anxiety; and remain present in the moment with focus, calmness, and confidence.
So, this spring as you are thinking about getting yourself back into physical shape with: an exercise program; an osteopath treatment; or a massage, consider working on your mental game to achieve your peak performance.
