Visualization is the ability to picture specific scenarios in your mind’s eye, which can trigger a number of benefits from improved shot repetition to stress and energy management. Here are some tips to improve your visualization skills:

  • Start by practicing this skill in a calm and quiet place, away from the lanes. Much like the physical game, it is best to practice it outside of competition’s pressure and distractions.
  • Incorporate as many senses as possible. Visualization isn’t purely visual. Hear the noises you would expect to hear, feel your body’s movements, etc.
  • View your performance in the first-person point of view—from your eyes—rather than as if you are watching yourself on TV.
