River Edge, NJ (PRWEB) September 11, 2008
A seven year old gymnast wants to make it to The Olympics. A twelve year old baseball player breaks out of a hitting slump and makes the travel team. An eleven year old tennis player wins a national event. A young golfer becomes a county champion. A soccer player, age 12, learns how to control his temper and stay calm, focused and confident under pressure.
Jay P. Granat, Ph.D., Psychotherapist and Founder of StayInTheZone.com has just released a new two volume CD program, Bed Time Stories For Young Athletes. These 23 short tales inspire, motivate and encourage young athletes to reach their potential and thoroughly enjoy their favorite sport. Each anecdote is just six minutes long, so this program is simple and efficient. It reaches kids when their imaginations are open to new ideas and to new ways of thinking, performing and competing.
Children can simply listen to one chapter a night and learn how to get into the zone and stay there.
Kids can also listen to their favorite chapters, prior to their games or during half time.
"Every day, I get contacted by parents who want to help their children to perform better at sports. When parents call me, they are usually frustrated as to how to help and motivate their kids. I teach the youngster, the parent and the coach how to empower the child so that they can perform in the zone more often," says Granat.
Dr. Granat has counseled athletes and parents of athletes from virtually every sport since 1985. He has been featured in The New York Times, Good Morning America, ESPN, Tennis Magazine and the BBC.
Golf Digest named him one of America's Top Ten Mental Gurus. He has lectured on peak performance at Fortune 500 corporations including Hyatt, Schering Plough and Paine Webber.
Granat has authored How To Get Into The Zone And Stay In The Zone With Sport Psychology And Self-Hypnosis, How To Lower Your Golf Score With Sport Psychology, 101 Ways To Break Out Of A Hitting Slump, Get Into The Zone In Just One Minute, Zone Tennis and Bedtime Stories For Young Athletes.
