What Dr. Kelly Waltman can say in an interview
- While it’s common practice for athletes to visualize successful outcomes when preparing for competition, you might be wondering how you can use this practice to up your game in the workplace? Visualization is a powerful tool for stress reduction, and in our current climate, we could all use a little help with stress management!
- There are many benefits to the practice of visualizing outcomes—from the advantage of mental rehearsal to the boost of confidence you receive.
- Some research even suggests that our brains can’t distinguish between a mentally rehearsed event and a real experience.
- Visualization is most effective if you close your eyes and really embrace the practice of guided imagery. The first step is to visualize the person or persons that you will be speaking with. Bring their image into your mind’s eye. Or, if you need to give a presentation, picture the audience. Picture yourself feeling calm, confident, and empowered. Visualize yourself feeling satisfied with how well the conversation went and visualize everyone in the room feeling satisfied and at ease. Once you feel that you have concluded the visualization gently open your eyes.
- Whenever you have a high-stress situation looming, try taking a few moments to visualize your way through the scenario.
