How good are you at concentration?
Not as good as you could be, is probably a close answer.
Many of you probably train hard, at least physically.
Sure, being on court and doing conditioned games and practices etc all improve your concentration but have you ever tried to focus on that alone?
Over the coming year, I will be suggesting ways to do it.
Let’s start today with a very basic exercise.
Get yourself into a comfortable position, somewhere quiet, not too hot or cold.
Take a book or novel, something with no images or pictures.
Start counting the number of words on each line and keep going until you reach the end of the page.
Try to ignore all other stimuli, focus solely on the number. Use your finger if you want to.
Do that at least once a day for a few weeks.
