The Mindful Toolbox

"Patrick worked with my teenage daughter who is a soccer player and was struggling with some of the mental pressure of playing in a competitive environment. It has made a huge difference in her confidence and it shows in her performance and her happiness on and off the field."

How Mindfulness Can Help Improve Athletic Performance

The Mindful Athlete Project:

Athletes of any age in any sport are under an immense amounts of pressure. This pressure builds as the athlete is relied upon to perform at their highest level either by their coach, teammates, fans and most importantly themselves (the voice in your head). The higher the probability that one's performance will be less than expected, the more difficult it becomes to perform at one's highest level. When the performance falters, the opponent or team gains an advantage. As the opponent or team begins scoring more the pressure on the athlete expands, the mind contracts and the player begins to perform worse. This scenario is also a factor in sports where an athlete is competing against themselves or a clock. The opponent in each of these cases is their own mind. 

The Mindful Athlete Program is a simple, secular and scientifically proven 10-week course that teaches tools for the reduction of stress, anxiety, increased focus, self-awareness and resilience. Mindfulness is a researched based technique that anyone can use to become a better athlete. More importantly, anyone can learn Mindfulness and the benefits that assist the athlete also permeate through life reducing stress at school, work, and day to day activities. 

Professional athletes around the world were the first to experience the benefits of Mindfulness while looking for that edge over their opponent. Now, after many years of research, Mindfulness has found it's way down into college, high school, and even young children to help everyone experience the power of being in the moment. 

The 10-Week Individual program meets once a week for 1 hour. Everything needed for the program is provided by NGMP. 

 

The program progresses through 3 phases.   Phase 1: Mindfulness, Phase 2: Acceptance, and

Phase 3: Commitment.

The Mindful TEAM Project

"Helping TEAMS become ZONE-READY" 

    Program Overview    

Sports teams are under immense amounts of pressure. This pressure builds as the team is relied upon to perform at their highest level either by their coach, fans, parents and most importantly themselves. The higher the probability that the team’s performance will be less than expected, the more difficult it becomes for them to perform. When the performance falters, the other team gains an advantage. As the other team begins scoring, the pressure on the athletes expand, the player’s minds contract, and they perform worse. The opponent is then the team’s own minds.

Steph Curry

 

"It's refreshing to process what I thought about over an hour... which are probably the most important things that are going on right now in (my) life. I have a very clear head when it's done... It gives me a nice boost of focus and perspective. The more I do it, the more I get from it."

- Steph Curry on his meditation and floating practice.

Carli Lloyd

 

"The #1 thing that has gotten me this far has been my mental approach - without that I would not have been as dominant. Over the years and definitely over the last four years, I've taken that visualization part to another level."

- Carli Lloyd, proponent and practitioner of visualization and mindfulness meditation.

Tiger Woods

 

"After my front nine, I needed to find what Mom called the 'quiet spot.' It came automatically in that green-to-tee walk. It had become so much a part of me... I could have come apart, but instead I felt in control. The walk was only a few yards, but I accomplished a lot in it. I was ready to play the back nine.  I felt centered in a way I hadn't before. I felt tranquil inside."

- Tiger Woods on how meditation helped him win the 1997 Masters after shooting 40 on his first nine holes.
