Mindfulness means being fully in the moment, being fully aware of one’s inner and outer space. It’s a meditation practice which accelerates personal development and by that, it improves different areas of both the private and professional life.
Athletes can benefit greatly from an enhanced ability to concentrate. For instance, every runner already knows about the kind of mental gymnastics they must perform in order to finish the last miles of the race. People involved in fitness already know how much the performance of the body is connected to the performance of the mind. Additionally, Mindfulness can help to deal with pain.
In today’s world, there are so many factors causing stress; meditation is also a powerful method for release. In a time of (in)voluntary sensual overload, the ability to concentrate and feel good independently of one’s surroundings is a skill much needed by many.
