What is Flow?
Flow is the state of being in the zone, when the athlete has complete commitment to the game, focus and feels exceptional comfort.
We’ve all seen at least once how individual athletes have exceptional performance and give their best. They were very likely in flow and this condition helped them achieve such an exceptional result. When an athlete is in flow, he has calmness, indulges in intuition and wins from that state.
There are a lot of footballers in world football who train mindfulness. One of them is Cristiano Ronaldo, the most famous player of today. Ronaldo: "I tried meditation and it really works. It calms and brings me a lot of serenity. I meditate almost every day."
One of the ways an athlete achieves balance is mindfulness. Mindfulness is a state of focused attention on the present moment and is realized through various practices and meditations.
Flow in a team is achieved when a coach sets goals for athletes that are in the motivation zone. The zone of motivation is when challenges and skills are in balance.
