MUSIC and SPORTS
Music promotes mental flow states for internal motivation. Mental “Flow” involves an altered mental state of awareness during activity. Even though it is a feeling of energized focus, it seems the mind and body function on “auto-pilot” with minimal conscious effort. Some coaches and athletes refer to this as being “in the zone”. It sometimes has been referred to as a spellbinding state and can feel trance-like. So, can you imagine how music can pair with an athlete for a stimulating and enhancing performance?
Some athletes utilize music to aid with their mental preparations during routine parts of their activities allowing them to be “in the zone”. Many athletes use music in diverse ways to achieve a certain level of focus and concentration before a game or competition as well. Music enables them to put aside all other outside distractions to concentrate and envision what they want to accomplish during the game.
The Sportz House and Dimas Radio have partnered to bring you a variety of musical hits through the years to help try and motivate athletes perform at their best.
