Meditation for Building Focus
Close your eyes and visualize before you the following mantras:
I am alive.
I am free.
I am capable.
I am strong.
Open your eyes and say the mantras out loud.
I am alive.
I am free.
I am capable.
I am strong.
Close your eyes again and visualize the energy flowing through your body. With each mantra, another part of your body becomes flooded with this unstoppable, warm energy.
I am alive.
Your feet begin to wake up, feel the energy rise up from the earth that supports you and flow freely through your legs.

“It's okay sometimes to even sit out the big competitions to focus on yourself, because it shows how strong of a competitor and person that you really are — rather than just battle through it.”
We are so proud of Simone Biles for choosing to prioritize her mental health! It can be incredibly hard to set boundaries and say “no” when there are so many external pressures encouraging us to stretch ourselves as thin as possible.
What decision can you make today to put your mental health first?

Guided Meditation for Confidence
Begin in a comfortable seated position. Sit tall, imagining a string pulling you up and keeping your head high. This guided meditation script will help you feel more confident. Close your eyes, and start to breathe. Take deep breaths in through your nose and out through your mouth. In for the count of four, and out for the count of four.
