‘In the Zone’ When Canoeing and Kayaking
When I’m coaching canoeing and kayaking – whether it’s open canoe, white water kayak or sea kayak, one topic that seems to crop up time and time again is the question “How can I control how I feel, expecially when I’m feeling nervous?” In other words – how can I get in the zone and deal with anxiety and fear? How can we control our state?
We all know that our minds and bodies are linked (have you ever woken from a nightmare with a cold sweat and your heart racing?), and we can use this two way link to stay in control.
Here is a clip from my ‘NLP for Sporting Excellence’ training course which tells you more about how you can use these naturally occuring patterns at will to help you perform at your best everytime you want to. It also gives a demostration of how to set up your own physiological anchor.
