Basketball Mindfulness 101 provides a simple, straightforward explanation of mindfulness and how it can benefit basketball players and coaches. You’ll learn what it means to be mindful and about the numerous benefits from practicing mindfulness that are supported by science.

This book provides specific strategies tailored to individuals that you can start using immediately as a player or coach that will help you develop a mindful approach toward basketball. Specially for coaches, this book includes exercises you can do with your team to cultivate a culture of mindfulness like Phil Jackson created with his Chicago Bulls and Los Angeles Lakers teams.
