Reframing is the process of changing your perspective on a given situation by viewing it through a more positive lens. Almost anything can be reframed into a positive or neutral context, rather than a negative one, which can help you keep a strong mindset on the lanes.

For example, when faced with a lane breakdown that causes a delay or even a change in pairs, bowlers can reframe this scenario into an opportunity to thrive. Use your mental skills to stay focused and sharp. In the case of a lane change, frame this as an opportunity to use your lane play skills to adapt quickly.

When faced with a tough pattern or unexpected ball reaction, many bowlers become confused and defeated. Reframing this kind of tough environment into an enjoyable test, and one that everyone must cope with, can help take the pressure off and ease your mind and your swing to find a solution.
