How Does Meditation Improve your Energy and Sporting Performance?

We’ve all been there. That moment when we’re competing in a run and we start to question why exactly we’re doing this? The overwhelming desire to stop and the unbearable pain appear make us want to laugh, cry, dribble and collapse all at the same time. Our legs go wobbly and we start to run like Morph after a good night out. All is not well with the world. Yet somehow we keep going, urging our aching body onwards until we’re confused, delirious and lurching forwards with a slightly hysterical look on our face. But maybe that’s just me. Then, as quickly as it all began, it’s over. We cross the finish line in a heap of exhaustion, mumble something incoherent to our friends and family before setting off to the pub for a celebratory pie and beer. After all we’ve earned it. It’s in this relative comfort where all the pain is forgotten, and before we know it we’re busy planning our next endeavour. The exhilaration of completing one of life’s challenges takes over and we start to think about what we could do better next time. Fuelled with happy hormones the hardships seem like a distant memory and we look forward to the next goal, the eternal quest to better ourselves…….and to beat our friends. +
