A Mnemonic device is a pattern of letters to help memorize phrases, ideas or keywords. I have created some mnemonic patterns of my own to help with frequent issues faced by athletes, such as fear of failure, loss of motivation, and performance anxiety.
DANCE- jumpstart your daily motivation
Determined- what is your purpose? What are you waking up for, who are you waking up for?
Appreciative- giving recognition to what you have, be it abilities, relationships, materials.
Navigate- create a directional guide of how you want your day to go and take control of every step you make
Confident- build it, positive self-talk, just know you can do it.
Excited- be happy, do everything with passion and enjoyment.
ROAR!- overcoming anxious feelings
Recognize-what it is that has made you anxious, stressed or uncomfortable.
Organize- a plan to lessen or extinguish a stressors relevance to the task, objective or goal.
Accept- that the stressor is present.
Respond- by committing to the task, objective or goal rather than the thought of outside, unvarying elements.
