Experts who study peak performance have discovered the common formula used by top athletes, successful business leaders, compelling public speakers, and those who excel in any field.
The key is to find the balance point between relaxation and activation.
Too relaxed? You can’t muster the energy and enthusiasm to get the job done.
Overly stimulated? You’re filled with excess, anxious energy that distracts from your focus.
The many ways you can make use of this principle
- Meditation and mindfulness practices help you find your personal sweet spot. Everyone who meditates – even the most seasoned Tibetan monk – finds his mind distracted periodically. By noticing these distractions without judgment you can gently train your brain for top performance.
- Physical practices like yoga, Pilates, or any form of exercise that engages your brain are also effective ways to train yourself.
- Don’t overlook the importance of a good night’s sleep.
- In my practice, I make use of NeuroTactile® Therapy (NTT) to help patients find their sweet spot. The special fingertip stroke of NTT combines relaxation with activation, so your nervous system is primed for optimal action.
