Mindfulness Mindset Training

Mindfulness gives an athlete the ability to notice the state of their thoughts, emotions, and behaviors in the present moment. This high level of awareness helps an athlete improve their focus, manage their thoughts and emotions, and respond well to adversity.

Mindfulness is a commonly referenced mental strategy but there are many misconceptions about what it is and how it is completed. The intent of this module is to clarify the nature of mindfulness and how it applies to sport and to provide resources for athletes to begin training mindfulness. We have seen firsthand how mindfulness exercises, such as the STOP technique and the AAA module, have enhanced performance in athletes of all levels – even our professional athletes. We recommend practicing these exercises with your athletes and encouraging them to practice mindfulness on their own.
