“Many successful athletes use music as a way to get their heads into an important competition, race, or game.”
Michael Phelps. America’s most successful Olympic athlete of the 21st century.
While there are many secrets to the success of this 23 gold medal winning champion, one fail proof factor of his success is pre-competition music.
Anyone who has watched a swim meet where Mr. Phelps was competing, has seen him with headphones on. He is focused, tuning in to the moment, and visualizing his upcoming victory. And he’s not alone.
Many successful athletes use music as a way to get their heads into an important competition, race, or game. In fact, many scientific studies are finding that music controls our brain functions as well as our bodies, citing that faster music can increase a person’s heart rate and prep them for stimulation.
BelievePerform published a great article detailing the three most influential times a person can listen to music to achieve the emotions and motivation they need:
- PRE-TASK MUSIC: To prepare and get your head into the (metaphorical) game
- IN-TASK MUSIC: To help stimulate inspiration and help increase perseverance and drive
- POST-TASK MUSIC: To calm the nerves and come back to normal after extreme stimulation and focus
Each state needs different levels of music intensity to achieve the needed level of inspiration a person needs to complete a task.
