emWave in Golf Digest

We often talk about how stress man­age­ment is as impor­tant as cog­ni­tive train­ing for brain fit­ness. We have also seen how traders can improve their per­for­mance by learn­ing how to man­age emo­tions of anx­i­ety and fus­tra­tion.

Golf Digest has just pub­lished an arti­cle on how golfers can see their game improved thanks to stress man­age­ment pro­grams. Golf Digest’s Edi­tion includes the arti­cle Play­ing with heart: Peb­ble Beach’s top teacher wants to choke­proof your game, explain­ing how Laird Small, direc­tor of the Peb­ble Beach Golf Acad­e­my and the 2003 PGA of Amer­i­ca Teacher of the Year, has been using these pro­grams for a num­ber of years.

Even more inter­est­ing­ly, it also relates how anoth­er great golfer

began work­ing with the hand-held emWave device. Par­tic­u­lar­ly fear­ful of pub­lic speak­ing, Woos­nam han­dled his Ryder Cup speech­es com­pe­tent­ly and most impor­tant was a poised leader dur­ing Europe’s vic­to­ry. “I need­ed to learn how to de-stress myself” says Woos­nam.

The abil­i­ty to reg­u­late our emo­tions is very impor­tant not only to bet­ter man­age stress, but also to ensure top per­for­mance. Yes, includ­ing pub­lic speak­ing!
