GO FIND THE FLOW

ONE OF OUR POST SPOKE ABOUT. All Olympic athletes have a clear goal in front of them, and they dream big.

Getting into a flow mindset (often described as being “in the zone”) can help athletes to consistently achieve optimal performance. Flow is defined as a mental state in which the individual transcends conscious thought and achieves a heightened state of effortless and unwavering concentration, calm and confidence. This flow state keeps pressures and distractions, both internal and external, from creeping into their minds and potentially harming their performance.

Behind these athletes’ physical feats is an arguably even more impressive mental prowess cultivated through years of training the mind to tune out distractions, reduce stress and anxiety and build the focus and stamina they need to achieve optimal performance. In fact, it’s not a stretch to say that great athletes succeed because they know how to stay at the top of their game mentally.

Former Olympic gold medal-winning decathlon runner Bruce Jenner once said “You have to train your mind like you train your body.” He’s echoing an athletic maxim that’s practically a cliché: sports are 90 percent mental and 10 percent physical.
