      I've been playing pretty poorly today feeling a bit distracted and just targeting the wrong spots.

      After few sessions like that I took a bath and then listened to this video, my mind kept wandering all over the place through out the vid but yet it helped me feel more relaxed and refreshed. I liked the feel of calm voice in the background while I'm just sitting there with my eyes closed. Kinda reminded me of how my parents used to read me books before sleep when I was a kid. :f_biggrin:

      After the vid I made another session and was pretty pleased with my play, got sucked out a few times but that didn't bother me, made a good bluffcatch in a spot where normally I would've folded and oddly enough my red line was positive for a session which used to happen only when I'm A gaming.

      So overall I consider it 10 minutes well spent and encourage other bootcampers to try it out.

      This is what I said to Erik in pm and figure I should post here also. One of my friends had a session with one of the psychology/mental guys from 2p2 and then I asked him what it was all about, what he learned/etc and we discussed a little but he also got an mp3 similar to this and he let me listen to it. And that mp3 was so similar to this, the focus and the ideas were the same.

      So guys this is not something Erik just threw up together, imo it works and this is coming from a guy that didn't believe in this kind of stuff.

      I'm gonna try this exercise every night before I go to sleep to clear my head.
      I tried it once and it is pretty relaxing.

      And I'll try it in between sessions if I'm too fired up. I think it will be a good way to let go of emotions and start a new session fresh.

      meditation before session is simply nuts! I do it for every session and it takes much more to get me over my tilt-treshhold :)

      I listen to it tonight and really it's really amazing on how relax I feel. I will listen to it every day this week before starting my session and see if there is difference in my game, if i am more focused etc...

      I'd love more of such content about training our mind to better focus and efficiency.

      Thanks again Erik

      Cool video and sexy calm voice is perfect for clearing up our minds :D

      Also I think some sounds of sea waves or smth similar on the background would do the trick, coz I searched on youtube for something like that and those sounds brought a lot of positive emotions, but ofc it might be that it just works for me, others maybe just prefer a silence :)

      Haha thanks! Glad you liked it.

      Overcoming the weird and awkward feeling of hearing yourself guide a meditation takes some time! :)
