☆ mental rehearsal イメージトレーニング
Recently I’ve been reading a lot of books about mental toughness for athletes. The ideas all apply to business and personal situations too, of course, not just to athletes. Every book I have read so far has mentioned the importance of mental rehearsal. If you can do a mental rehearsal of the event or game, or even English lesson, then you have a much better chance of success.
The top athletes get to the top by being mentally strong and this involves doing a lot of mental rehearsals – they include it as part of their regular practice. I really recommend you do the same for English. If you are taking the TOEIC or TOEFL test then do a mental rehearsal – see yourself in your inner mind, sitting down and answering the questions easily during the test. See yourself leaving the testing room feeling confident that you have gotten the result you want. Mental rehearsal can boost your confidence greatly, and a confident person is always going to perform better than a nervous person. Give it a try!
