The need to simply relax has become so prevalent in all societies that techniques like Yoga have become quite popular, along with Zen Gardens where you can meditate and find tranquil inner peace. Today, many people including famous athletes are using meditation to find their center. As we understand the nature of life, we can let our worries go and focus better on performing on the field.
“The pattern of the past can never bring a new present life. Instead of being doomed to repeat the cycles in crushing defeats, why not just shake off the shackles of old thinking to create a totally new lifestyle for the world.”
What if you could create your own private haven where you and your family could get away from the fast-paced lifestyle? Imagine a peaceful harbor from the storms of life located in your own home. The simple luxury of meditating is an achievable dream. It’s almost imperative for today’s busy athletes. This is a simple but powerful way to let go of the frustrations we face each day and find inner peace.
This requires only a few minutes of your time each day. And this is not a difficult discipline to conquer. Simply find a quiet place, close your eyes and focus on breathing. Shake off the worries of the day and just breathe.
Zhang Xinyue believes that athletes have a duty to protect their spirit, soul and body. She explains:
“Our body is a temple. Disrespecting the body is a defiance against the Divine.”
