Routine and Attention
Saturday. 11.4.06 11:29 pm
I read this interesting article on how routine sports or activities can increase your concentration. It actually makes sense. I would figure that this would apply to hunting, darts or archery as well.
Preperformance routines have been found to help focus attention, reduce anxiety, eliminate distractions, enhance confidence, and be extremely helpful to mental preparation for an upcoming performance (Lidor & Singer, 2000; Weinberg & Gould, 2003). Many athletes have developed the ability to reach the ideal performance state by associating concentration to specific preperformance routines (Schmid & Pepper, 1998). Preshot routines have been shown to be an effective concentration cue in many different sports such as golf, bowling, basketball, tennis, and skiing. (Cohn, Rotella, & Loyd, 1990; Kirschenbaum, Ordman, Tomarken, & Holtzbauer, 1982; Lobmeyer & Wasserman, 1986; McCann, Lavallee, & Lavallee, 2001; ...

Pre-performance routines stretch your muscles and give you time to go over the plays or movements in your head. It could also simply make you draw inward to focus your energy and concentration.

I'm not too into sports, but I do walk on a daily basis. It gives me time to clear my mind or just think about everything.
