Other information
FOCUS MAKES PERFECT
She applies attention management exercises to improve her focus in life and sport. "I do simple attention workouts every day. Throughout the day, I find a minute and observe what I am thinking, what I am feeling. I get home and for one minute I try not to think about anything. All this work is due to competition. Shooting requires 60 shots - technically good, without letting in emotions or being nervous about a previous bad shot. It helps in competition because everything has to be controlled: shoulder, hand, wrist, gaze, breathing. If I raise my hand and the thought about the best shooter in the world being next to me, I easily stop myself: wait, now I'm shooting, I don't need to think. I exhale, inhale and concentrate on the shot. It's hardest to keep focused attention for over an hour. In the first 15 minutes of the match, you can control everything if you have a lot of adrenaline. But after that, the brain protects itself from 'burnout' and begins to relax on its own, embraces mild apathy and it becomes difficult to shoot. I'm still learning how to stay focused for a long time and I hope to learn that one day." (15min.lt, 21 Aug 2021)
