Chiking in Sports: ACT on it

The purpose of this article is to describe the phenomenon of choking
in sport, and suggest a process approach to managing competitive
pressure and choking (based on the sport, cognitive, and clinical
psychology literature). Specific suggestions are provided for athletes
to use before, during, and after competition. Athletes are encouraged
to accept and acknowledge pressure and the feelings associated
with choking, as opposed to attempting to avoid or get rid of
these feelings. The strategy for athletes to use during competition is
to ACT on it, or to follow the steps of Accept, Center, and Trust.
