Definition of a “routine”: a habit of acting or thinking that has become mechanical.
Routines, whether conscious or unconscious, promote renewed concentration, neurological relaxation, and the construction of new neural circuits. Some researchers in clinical psychology recognize the usefulness of routines in controlling anxiety and stress.
However, are these strategies applicable to your clients… or even to you?
As a health and sports professional, how can you implement routines with your athletes, your clients or yourself? You will find answers in this dynamic workshop. It will give you the chance to experiment several micro strategies within the RELAX – REGROUP – REFOCUS microroutine that you can then integrate to your practice!
The microroutine allows the recovery (RELAX), the preparation for concentration (REGROUP), and the resumption of concentration (REFOCUS). Why do you think all high-performance athletes have a routine? Because it works! All you have to do is learn what to do and how to do it: that’s what you’ll learn in this training. You will become a better professional for yourself and for your clients.
