Mind – Just like humor is good for you, mental preparation is important. According to Smith and Bar-Eli in Essential Readings in Sports Psychology, using mental imagery can improve performance and motivation, and in some cases proves just as effective as actually performing the event.  Pilots have often used what we call chair flying to step through procedures not only literally, but also mentally to prepare for missions. How can you apply this to daily life? When you are learning new routines, whether they be athletic or otherwise, spend 5 minutes to positively visualize yourself completing the action you would like to do.
In this photo we are preparing Mack to fire a potato cannon!  He spent days preparing for this!
