Visualization - Sport Psych Saturday

"When you close your eyes and paint a full sensory picture of you achieving your goal, it's like giving your brain a practice round"

In this week's Sport Psych Saturday, we talk about visualization.

Like Rogers suggests, painting a picture of your race, match, or skill in your mind, as well as including all relevant senses while doing so, can ready your brain and body for your upcoming performance. 

Watch Brad's video (linked below) to learn how to visualize and gain some visualization tips. Brad uses golf as an example sport; however, visualization can be used for any sport and in everyday life when trying to achieve a certain goal. Whether this be a business professional preparing a presentation or a hockey player practicing shots, you can use these tools anywhere.
