    Sport Motivation

    Audio sport motivation exercise focused on fear of failure and demand thinking by changing self-talk.  The purpose is to focus on pursuing excellence in the area of sports without the demands that tend to interfere with success. (see article: Excellence vs. Perfection). The idea of this exercise is to listen to it frequently so as to increase the repetition of rational motivational self-talk.  The more you listen to it, the more you will start to use the thinking presented. Just close your eyes and listen without trying to force yourself to relax.  If your mind wanders, gently bring yourself back to focus on the words.

    This exercise does not need complete relaxation in order to benefit.  You may find that you can listen to it while taking a walk or doing dishes or some other activity that doesn't require your complete focus.

    Do not use while operating a vehicle or during other activities that require your full attention! 

    Intensity Training

    Audio exercise focused on learning how to access the emotional state that you require in order to perform at the level you require. In sports, sometimes an athlete requires a high level of intensity such as a defensive football player or a fighter. Othertimes an athlete requires low intensity so as to focus such as a golfer.

    This audio uses imagery of floating through the different colors of the rainbow and associating each color with a different emotional state such as red associated with strength and power and blue is associated with relaxation and calmness. The more you listen to this audio, the more your brain will associate those colors with the different emotional states. Then, when you need to access a certain emotional state for your sport you can just imagine that color flowing through you bringing the feelings and sensations you want.

    This may be used while sitting or lying down in a quiet, comfortable place.  Just close your eyes and listen without trying to force yourself to relax.  If your mind wanders, gently bring yourself back to focus on the words.

    Do not use while operating a vehicle or during other activities that require your full attention!


    Energizing the Body and Mind

    This ten minute audio focuses on increasing the feeling of energy and strength in the body. This audio has several purposes. It can assist people who tend to have problems with fatigue or low energy. Also, it can aid with a more positive focus regarding the body.

    This can be an excellent audio for athletes who need to pump up their energy. It can help them focus on feeling the physical strength of their body and prepare them for their sport.

    Day On the Farm Mindfulness

    Audio relaxation exercise intended to help achieve mindful awareness of imagery and sensations. The imagery describes a morning on the farm imagining and getting in touch with the sights, sounds, aromas, and tastes.  This is a good relaxation exercise for athletes because it teaches you to be aware of everything around you and to be present in the moment. The more you are connected to everything in the present, the more prepared you will be and readily able to respond.

    This may be used while sitting or lying down in a quiet, comfortable place.  Just close your eyes and listen without trying to force yourself to relax.  If your mind wanders, gently bring yourself back to focus on the words.

    Do not use while operating a vehicle or during other activites that require your full attention!

    Sport Imagery Exercise

    Audio sport psychology exercise focused on learning how to visualize your sports performance. The idea is to use mental rehearsal of an accurate technique or performance in order to enhance muscle memory and to improve concentration and focus during your sporting events. In addition, this exercise allows you to be able to practice your sport at times when you can't physically practice.

    This may be used while sitting or lying down in a quiet, comfortable place.  Just close your eyes and listen without trying to force yourself to relax.  If your mind wanders, gently bring yourself back to focus on the words.
