What many people don’t realise is that sporting ability comes down to hand-eye coordination and the ability to concentrate and react correctly. While people believe that practice makes perfect, there are other ways in which you can improve your performance at your chosen sport.

Being part of a team can be fun and a great way to relax and de-stress for both adults and children. It is always encouraged that you are part of a sport or activity that can get you fit, active and feeling good about yourself. Unfortunately there may be times when we need a little help along the way, especially if we find we are struggling with performance or similar.

Below are 5 great ways to improve sport performance:

  • Ensure that you are following a healthy and balanced diet.
  • Participate in some great alternative therapies that promote concentrate and co-ordination such as Interactive Metronome.
  • Take the time to practice each day, even if you only have a few minutes available. While doing so, focus your complete attention on the activity.
  • Get enough sleep and try to reduce stress. Sports performance can take a dip if you are under a lot of stress.
  • Don’t give up! Giving up on yourself and your abilities can have a seriously negative impact on your performance. If you are struggling with something, keep practicing and investigate ways in which you could achieve better results, without giving up.

Many children and adults require some assistance with their coordination skills, thought processing patterns, reactions and concentration – and this is nothing to be ashamed of. By taking the time to calmly address any performance issues that you might have, you have the best chance to overcome them and improve on your overall performance greatly.
