Do you know that once you start practicing meditation with your regular crossfit wod or even other fitness trainings, you might start to experience tremendous improvements in your trainings. Try it, you’ll be amazed at the results!
Here are some of the amazing ways meditation and mindfulness can help you!
“As you walk and eat and travel, be where you are. Otherwise you will miss most of your life.”
1. Understand Pain
Pain is a fact of life, but it doesn’t have to rule you. Mindfulness can help you reshape your reactions to mental and physical pain.
2. Connect Better
Ever find yourself staring blankly at a child, friend, significant other, and you have no idea what they’re saying? Mindfulness helps you give them your full attention.
3. Stress Reduction
There is a great deal of evidence that excess stress is the root cause of many illnesses and even can make other diseases worse. Meditation helps you to decrease stress.
4. Mind Focus
It can be frustrating to have our mind stray and be pulled in six directions. Meditation hones our innate ability to focus. Focus is a requirement for you to achieve success in whatever you do, including your trainings.
5. Relax the Brain
The nattering, chattering voice in our head seems never to leave us alone. Isn’t it time we gave it a little break?
6. Set aside some time
You don’t need a meditation cushion or bench, or any sort of special equipment to access your mindfulness skills but you do need to set aside time and space.
7. Observe the present moment
The aim of mindfulness is not quieting the mind, or attempting to achieve a state of eternal calm. The goal is simple: we’re aiming to pay attention to the present moment, without judgement. Easier said than done, we know.
8. Let your judgments roll by
When we notice any judgmental thoughts during our practice, we can make a mental note of them, and let them pass.
9. Return to observing
Our minds often get carried away in thought. That’s why mindfulness includes the practice of returning, again and again, to the present moment. As you train, be where you are!
10. Be kind to your wandering mind
Don’t judge yourself for whatever thoughts crop up, just practice recognizing when your mind has wandered off, and gently bring it back.
