Imagery has reduced my anxiety by letting me image a play or routine that I need to complete throughout a game. One thing this has done is rapidly decrease my anxiety levels from a high level to a median level which is optimal for an athlete to work at their best. An example of where I used Imagery throughout training sessions and games is when I imagined myself performing a rucking routine.

Imagery has improved my motivation by allowing me to imagine a play like for example a wrap or a dump slip before I go out and complete it out on the field. This helped me increase my motivation towards touch football because once I picture a routine that I had to complete it gave me confidences to go out and complete that plan that I envision in my mind.

Imagery has improved my arousal by showing me that once I pictured myself running a play in my mind it gave me confidents that I could go on to the field and run a play step by step.
