……compete like practice! These are the words my husband instills in me every week. I don’t get a lot of time to practice, so instead I’m always looking for opportunities to challenge my nerves, heart rate, patience and strength. The more I can recreate the feelings I have on the golf course in a practice scenario, the more comfortable I get.
Here are a few of the ways I do just that:
- Not using headphones when I’m at the range or putting green
- Doing drills where I change my target or shot after each swing
- Creating workouts that push my mentally and physically
- Taking time to myself with no distractions, just me and my thoughts
Today was no exception, during TKD practice the challenge was put forth to jump off our boxing bag and hit a target in the air. My heart rate went right up immediately, but instead of folding, I worked on using the adrenaline to gain focus.
I challenge you all this week to head towards the comfortable and embrace the nerves, you might just find something pretty cool on the other side.
