River Edge, NJ (PressExposure) June 11, 2009 -- What is a slump? What causes someone to perform poorly for an extended period of time? What can someone do to avoid a slump at sports or at work?
Jay P. Granat, Ph.D., founder of http://www.StayInTheZone.com was recently interviewed by a reproter, Courtney Pannell of http://www.Forbes.com about the causes and cures for slumps on the golf course, the tennis court, baseball and business.
Granat, who has written a number of books and developed a number of programs to help people perform to their fullest potential, gets calls all the time from athletes, parents and coaches who are stuck in slumps.
According to Dr. Granat, "There are many strategies and techniques for getting into the zone and getting out of a slump. Sometimes a small change can solve the problem.
Words of encouragement and a shift in one's thinking and in one's philosophy about their sport or activity can facilitate a significant change in one's performance."
"It is also a good idea to know what your peak performance feels like and what a slump feels like for you. In addition, knowing what has gotten you out of slumps in the past can be quite helpful.
Hundreds of techniques, articles, products and programs can be found at http://www.StayInTheZone.com and in Dr. Granat's books which are available at Amazon and at Barnes and Noble.
Granat, who has been featured on Good Morning America and in The New York Times. Golf Digest called him one of America's Top Ten Mental Gurus. He can be reached at 888 580 ZONE or at email@example.com
