Working on the Mental Game

Recently I have been doing more work on the mental aspect of my sport.  No matter how much time I spend on it, I don't seem to spend enough time cultivating a proper state of mind.  I am working to change that.

I see participation in sport as a complete endeavor: whether we win or lose, we enjoy the most rewarding experiences when we play the game consciously with all of the aspects of our being--physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual.  For that reason, I want my engagement to be more complete, more integrated.

Soon, I'll write more about the specifics.  At this point, I want to ask you, my readers, how you do mental training?  I'd especially like to hear from the other boxers, but I'm confident I can learn much from any athletes who want to share their routines and experiences with the mental component of sports.  Please post your thoughts as comments.  Thanks.
