One of the best ways to improve your game - apart from practising technical drills and swing mechanics - is to work on “course management” - a strategic aspect of the game that involves thinking clearly and playing the right shot at the right time as you navigate your way around the course in all weather conditions. Effective course management involves making the smart shot choice each time you stand over the ball.

There are 10 audio recordings in this series including: Concentration, course management, developing mental toughness, enjoying your golf, first tee nerves, handling mistakes and setbacks, increasing your confidence, performing under pressure, pre-shot routines, and putting well.

Have you ever wondered why golfers like to prepare for every shot in the same methodical way? For example, they always line up their target and set-up their shots in a consistent manner and they take the same number of practice swings each time. In golf, this preferred sequence of preparatory thoughts and actions is called a “pre-shot routine”. Its main objective is to help players to clear their minds and warm-up their bodies so that they can focus completely on producing a comfortable and consistent swing. Such consistency is crucial for success in golf. As Gary Player, a 9-times Major winner, remarked: “the most important thing in golf is to have the same swing every time”.

Contains instruction on pre-shot routines, pre-match routines, post mistake routines and a short visualisation exercise.

There are 10 audio recordings in this series including: Concentration, course management, developing mental toughness, enjoying your golf, first tee nerves, handling mistakes and setbacks, increasing your confidence, performing under pressure, pre-shot routines, and putting well.

Concentration, or the ability to focus on the task at hand while ignoring distractions, is crucial for success in golf. This is true because golf is a “stop-start” game in which at least 90% of your time on the course is spent doing something other than hitting the ball. And because there is a lot of walking and mental “down time” between your shots, a multitude of distractions can arise and divert your focus from the present moment. For example, a sudden noise or movement from a playing partner could upset your swing or you may find yourself thinking too far ahead as you face a putt. And like most players, you probably find it difficult to forget about a missed opportunity that occurred several holes back. Unfortunately, each of these distractions could prove costly to your score.

Contains 6 special tips to improve concentration in your game, and a short visualisation exercise involving a short putt.

By Elaine McFerran

Step-by-step audio instruction while you cook like a professional.

Elaine McFerran, our Irish Chef, will be talking you through how to prepare a traditional Irish stew for four people. If you are only cooking for two why not cook for four and freeze some for a later meal.

If you don’t feel too confident in your cooking abilities don’t stress! Make yourself a cup of tea or coffee and listen through the whole process before you begin. Don’t forget you can pause and rewind Elaine as many times as you need. Cooking should be fun so don’t worry too much. Assuming you download this audio to your mobile phone you can take Elaine with you as you walk around the kitchen and when you shop for groceries.

Just so you know what to expect here’s the sequence; first Elaine will be explaining what ingredients you will need for this dish, followed by the equipment you’ll need to gather together before you begin. Then she’ll run through the stages of preparation and cooking.

Once you’ve got your ingredients and equipment together, it should take you about one hour to make the stew, but don’t worry, a significant amount of this time won’t include preparation, but will just be cooking time with the stew bubbling away to itself slowly. Work back about one hour and 20 minutes from the time you will serve the meal to your family and friends.

You can find the list of ingredients and equipment mentioned in the recording also on the Mindcool website: https://mindcool.com/irish-stew-ingredients-and-equipment

$3.99

This audio presentation will take you gently into a deep restful sleep under the guidance of Sara Dylan. Sara’s soft, kind, reassuring voice will lead you step by step into the safe, comfortable mind-set that will be conducive to achieving deep restful sleep. The intention of this meditation for deep sleep is that you will sleep soundly and deeply and wake up feeling refreshed and re-energised.

Everyone has a rough night or two, and about 30% of adults have occasional or short-term insomnia. Chronic insomnia, though, lasts for more than three weeks. About 10% of adults experience chronic insomnia, and most need treatment to get relief. You can help your doctor evaluate your problem by keeping a sleep diary, which tracks such things as: number and time of caffeinated beverages during the day, naps during the day, your bedtime the previous night, and number of awakenings during the night.

Meditation can help with sleep but there are other things to consider which will improve your chances of getting to sleep and staying asleep. The UK National Health Service recommends the following:

BE SURE TO • go to bed and wake up at the same time every day – only go to bed when you feel tired • relax at least 1 hour before bed – for example, take a bath or read a book • make sure your bedroom is dark and quiet – use thick curtains, blinds, an eye mask or ear plugs • make sure the room is not too hot or too cold • exercise regularly during the day • make sure your mattress, pillows and covers are comfortable

TRY NOT TO • drink alcohol, tea or coffee at least 6 hours before going to bed • eat a big meal late at night

DO SEE YOUR DOCTOR IF • you've had trouble sleeping for months • your insomnia is affecting your daily life in a way that makes it hard for you to cope

Tips on being Assertive by Dr Denis McBrinn, narrated by Sara Dylan. This audiobook will bring to you a clear and comprehensive list of useful tips to help you become more assertive

The communication skill of being assertive, is about striking the right balance between our needs and the needs of others.

If we are always centred on satisfying our own needs, at the expense of others, we will be perceived as being selfish and aggressive.

On the other hand, if we are always putting the needs of others first and neglecting our own essential needs, we risk being taken for granted and our self-esteem will suffer.

Assertiveness is about finding the right response to situations, that is neither aggressive nor passive. It is an important communication tool, that can be learned and developed, with practice.

Dealing with Angry People
  • Dealing with Angry People
In cart Not available Out of stock
$9.99

This audiobook will equip you with proven techniques to successfully communicate with angry people and protect yourself from violence

Have you ever been angry? I’m sure you have. How did it feel? What caused it? Did you lash out physically at furniture or people or just fume quietly?

Have you ever experienced an angry customer, or patient, or family member and been at a loss as to how to calm things down? Upon reflection have you maybe sometimes escalated the anger in the other person by arguing or speaking over or interrupting their angry rant?

Have you ever seen someone reach a point where they do kick furniture about or even raise a hand to strike you?

This audiobook is designed to give you an understanding of what anger is and when encountered in someone else what to do and what not to do to calm things down and reach a more rational way forward.

Psychologists recognise three types of anger: 1. There is hasty and sudden anger often connected to the impulse for self-preservation. It is shared by human and other animals, and it occurs when the animal, the person, is tormented or trapped. 2. Then there is the more common settled and deliberate anger possibly a reaction to perceived deliberate harm or unfair treatment by others. 3. And finally, dispositional anger often related more to character traits than to instincts or cognitions. Irritability, sullenness and churlishness are examples of this

In this audiobook we will be focusing mostly on type 2 where the anger is settled and deliberate, possibly a reaction to perceived deliberate harm or unfair treatment. Of course you may encounter all three types.

Some examples of the type 2 kind of anger might include a customer, who is complaining about the standard of the product they have purchased, or the householder who is angry at the engineer who is trying to get their electricity supply back on, or their heating repaired on a cold winter’s day.

Whether they are right or wrong, their perception is that you or your organisation is to blame and they will vent their anger and hopefully not their violence, on you.

You might work in a shop, or a bank, or you might be a social worker visiting your clients at their homes? You might be a nurse or Doctor dealing with unruly patients in Emergency on a Saturday night, or a police officer for whom the angry person is a frequent occurrence. Whatever your role in life you are going to encounter an angry person at some point. Be prepared.

The key to developing your true potential and being happy. By Sarah Connor: Narrated by Sarah Connor

In seeking answers to many of life’s questions, the great teachers have talked about “going inward". Divine power within can bring about transformation in our lives once we know it and trust it. Having an “Inner Life” is the key to developing our true potential.

Studies on happiness suggest that 20% of what makes us happy in life is to do with our mental attitude. If we have a positive outlook on life, are flexible, open to change and have resilience to bounce back from life’s disappointments then we are happier and enjoy life more. Although we have inherited some of our mental attitude from our gene pool there is a great deal we can do to develop our mental well being and emotional health.

This audio presentation covers the areas of: Faith, courage, prayer and meditation, sense of wonder, serving others, integrity, peace of mind, sound mental wellbeing, positive affirmations, mindfulness, gratitude, acceptance, and forgiveness.

Developing an inner life is about being open to experiences and forces that could be influencing our destiny.
