•Do you want to improve your mental preparation?
•You want athletes to function better under pressure?
•You don’t know how to achieve flow?
•You want to improve your athletes focus?

Mental training handbook is a relatively short but very applicable book made for those who want to learn mental training methods and want to apply them in their everyday training.

Primarily this book was made for coaches and psychologists as it gives them practical tools that can be used in their work with athletes, but at the same time athletes can use this book and techniques described inside to improve their own performance.

Tools described in this book are used by semi-professional and professional athletes, national team members, Olympians and medal winners from European and World championships. Also, all tools described in this book are scientifically based.

This is book unlike any other, as it uses very little theory and gives many concrete answers and practical guidelines on how to:

•improve motivation and develop self-motivation strategies
•improve focus and achieve flow
•manage emotions and reactions
•improve communication and relationships
•use mental training with children

After each section you will have tasks and practical application guide. That way through this book I will not teach you about mental training but instead you will be able to start using mental training.

I believe that the right of every individual is to learn, grow, create meaningful and productive relationships and achieve excellence in any area. That is why this book is here, to share my knowledge and provide support.
