Focus on Being rather than Doing

Performance training apps

When we want to change something about ourselves, instead of “being” our actions or “becoming” a better person in some way, we merely “do” something differently, and so remain separated from the act or change that we desire. When we adopt some external process to do, rather than a new and better way to be, the body and mind remain fundamentally unchanged. What’s needed is not the addition of a new activity, but a change in the foundation from which all our actions arise. Read more

FocusBand Mushin Body

The FocusBand Mushin Drills trains the athlete to a more sensitive body feeling-awareness

How well we can perform physically depends largely on the accuracy and sensitivity of our senses. Not only the five senses, but, perhaps even more importantly, our “feeling-awareness” of the whole body. After all, the key to effective movement is built right into the design of each human structure. The more fully we can feel our bodies, the easier it is to live and move in accordance with this design. A finely tuned sense of our own bodies is what makes us athletes or artists or masters. Anyone can train activities— to increase ability, we need to train our sense of feeling-awareness. But what is feeling-awareness? When we hear athletes speak of being “in the zone” we might imagine a special trance-like state that makes them capable of great feats of skill.

Sports Psychology Conference – Orlando 18-21 October 2017

FocusBand founders Henry & Graham Boulton will be exhibiting at the Sports Psychology Conference in Orlando USA with their partners in this field, Marty Wuttke  & Carrie Paine from the Wuttke Institute.

Graham & Henry who are Electronic Engineers built their own 3D Body Motion System after they started T 2 Green Pty Ltd in 2002  which is now used by leading coaches including EA Tischler. This highlighted to them that just having sound biomechanics, while important, did not necessarily produce results under the pressures of tournament conditions.

The Relationship between Stress and Anxiety, and how Meditation may Resolve the State

An anxious state of mind is not a pleasant mental state to find yourself in. Whether it be social anxiety, post traumatic stress disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, or any of the other variations of anxiety, they create a constant state of fear and helplessness in the affected individual. The relationship between stress and anxiety is especially interesting, in that they feed off of each other and create a self destructive cycle that works to make the anxious person suffer even more. Take for example, an individual with obsessive compulsive disorder who is anxious because on the way to work, they suddenly had the thought that they may have left open their front door. With the way unconscious habits operate, this is unlikely to be true. Yet they feel extreme stress and want to go home and check. Should they go home, they would be late for work and this creates further stress. It does not matter if they go home or to work, the anxiety and stress will continue to haunt them. Continue reading to see how Meditation helps anxiety and stress.

Depression and its Interactions with Meditation

Depression is a disorder that has the potential to destroy lives. Those suffering from the condition may lose the will to live, stop taking care of themselves and withdraw from society. Suicide is also attempted by those with depression, in fact, they are at a greater risk of ending their lives. Isolated, unsure of what is happening to them and yet unwilling to resolve the issue by virtue of their mental state – depression is an enemy that sticks close to your side, pretending to be your friend. For those suffering from this condition, every new day is a struggle to survive, simple getting out of bed can prove to be a huge challenge. Depending on the severity of the depression, the individual may completely isolate themselves, even from their loved ones.

FocusBand Co-Founder Henry Boulton’s Podcast Interview with Steve Riggs

Henry Boulton recently has done a podcast interview with Steve Riggs of The Lesson Tree about how in motion technology is changing lives. Listen to the full interview -> CLICK HERE

Below is the Summary:

When The FocusBand Was Born and How Many Tour Players Are Using It

Henry mentioned that there are 15 athletes using the FocusBand when he was asked by Steve as to how many tour players are using the FocusBand. Henry also mentioned that they have done work with Autralian Tour, Japanese and European tour. They started working on the FocusBand back then when they are training Japanese Tour players who are doing well physically and technically almost ideal in sleep, nutrition, everything was great. In their practice round they are awesome but when it comes to the tournament, they were missing cuts and not performing to the level that they could play. So Henry and his father Graham obviously knew that there is something wrong with the process and back there is nothing really out there that can measure the brain, nothing really that can make a difference so that is when they started building the FocusBand in 2009. That is when the FocusBand was born. From there they developed algorithms called Mushin which is when you get into that right brain state and that is your ideal brain performance state.
