Think. Breathe. Act.
I came upon this method of mindfulness in action as my original approach to golf, creating a better understanding of strategic feel and learning. To bring this to you as a fully developed process, required tests and training with high performance athletes in the game.
Every one of us is increasingly barraged with distractions, yet not many yet know how to consciously calm ourselves in the midst of most chaotic moments to let the mind “re-boot.” Mindfulness is paying attention on purpose, in the present moment and a non-judgmental open way. This is the antidote to stress of constant fight or flight responses. By focusing attention, without distraction, you experience a greater sense of presence, confidence and connection, thus able to align and engage for maximal focused purpose.
Transition from the mechanics of habitual movement
to physical sensation and embodied awareness.
Thinking in a strategic way with conscious breathing helps you play any sport and swing or shoot with your whole body. Your awareness of thought is a discipline of deliberate practice. You deliberately practice purposeful thinking to envision moving thoughts into place.
Shift from shallow, unconscious breathing to deliberate breathing
in coordination with thought and action.
Pay attention to your breathing, become able to listen to the rhythm of life within you. Knowing your own rhythm allows focus to dominate your performance. Breathing brings balance, thus you understand technique and expertly apply it, every time.
Transfer from the reliance on innate talent to
the power of purposeful practice.
When proceeded by targeted Thinking and Breathing, Acting without additional thought is instinctive. Native talent reaches a peak. You grow beyond that through efficient practice techniques. Talent’s height happens during youth, practice brings out your best for life.

“Sports and movement take place in the outside world. How we perceive them and what we think of them take place in the inside world. Meditation gives us the space to contemplate our perception of these things.“ – Joshua Dunn
