Did you know that the physical phenomenon of feeling nervous and feeling excited are almost exactly the same? The body has a hard time distinguishing between the two emotions. It’s the brain that determines which emotion your gymnast is going to experience based on the thoughts that she is having.
In this episode:
-Understanding the NOW process
-Shifting nerves to excitement
-Breathing strategies to help calm nerves
Being able to identify emotions and how they are existing within our bodies can really help us process what we’re going through.
