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.

FocusBand – Fast & Focused App

Performance training appsThe premise of the FocusBand is Neurofeedback

Neurofeedback training uses EEG (Electroencephalogram) which accurately measures Brainwave activity through soft woven sensors, safely placed on the surface of the head. This brainwave activity can then be monitored visually and by audio tones.

Through the brain’s sophisticated feedback system, individuals are taught, in a game-like format, to effectively exercise their brain, leading to increased awareness and differentiation of mental states.

Neurofeedback naturally empowers the brain to effortlessly develop increased control and strength, much like the effects of weight lifting to develop muscle strength or jogging to improve cardiovascular fitness.

Are you mild, in the middle, or intense on your performance path?

Where are you on your performance path: Are you mild, in the middle, or intense?

Performance App reporting to measure performance pathMild: One who is curious but not really committed to self-evolution. There is a tendency to have a lot of doubts and judgments. This type will go from teacher to teacher, seminar to seminar, searching but always maintaining some distance and never quite willing (or simply does not recognize the need) to put in the sincere effort it takes to begin (and engage in) the performance process.

Use Your Noggin – Like Jason Day

Jason Day using focusband performance apps for pre-shot routine featured at Golf DigestBy now, you’ve probably noticed Jason Day’s pre-shot routine. Day flutters his eyes open and closed behind the ball(right) while taking a deep breath before stepping into nearly every shot. It might look odd but it has a purpose. It’s the result of Day’s work in controlling brain activity using an app-based product called FocusBand.

When you wear the company’s headgear and hit a golf shot, sensors record what’s going on in your head – namely, are you focused or are you distracted?

The device was invented in 2009 by the Australian father and son team of Graham and Henry Boulton to help train athletes in all sports get into what is commonly known as the zone”, or as the Boulton’s call it, a “state of no-mindedness or Mushin”. The goal? Training your mind to perform the process of each swing without having to consciously think about the routine or the outcome as you perform it.
