As an athlete, your mental state is just as important as your physical state. We know you’re constantly training your body, but are you training your mind?
Meditation is like exercise for you mind. And the more you train your mind, the stronger your mind will get. This will cultivate the mental toughness needed to handle the continual pressures of the gym/court/field, empowering you to feel better and perform better.
So, no matter what difficult or stressful situation you face (such as dealing with finals or competing during post-season), meditation will help you develop the tools to easily navigate with a clear, calm mindset.
The Resilient Mindset Series
With this series, you’ll learn to be comfortable with change and struggle, train your mind to be mentally tough, and develop the ability to keep your cool and make intelligent decisions in difficult times.
We recommend doing one video per day for 10 days. Each video is 20 minutes long.

The Benefits of Meditation
We get it. Meditation can be really challenging! It’s especially tough for athletes that are used to always being on the move and putting in a ton of physical work. Practicing mental work (including sitting in stillness and quiet) may feel harder than a sweaty workout, but that’s exactly why you need it!
Meditation is used to identify distractions, cultivate mental toughness, and improve focus when needed most.
- Increase focus
