Do you like to push your body to excel? Whether you run, cycle, workout or participate in organized sports, one way to boost your success may surprise you. It’s by embracing stillness.
Before you hit the pavement or playing field, take a few minutes to get into the zone by cultivating your inner calm.
Building in 10 minutes of meditation each day can help make you a better athlete, says orthopedic surgeon Mark Schickendantz, MD, Director of Cleveland Clinic’s Sports Health Center.
He says meditating “helps athletes learn how to become very centered, very grounded and very quiet.”
