What to do if You Take Mental Naps During Matches
In this episode, Dr. Cohn answers a question from a reader who takes micronaps during points and not finishing off the point. Here's the question of the week: OHN: I recently noticed that I sometimes take "micronaps" during points. Especially when I hit the ball well, I "reward" myself by resting, rather than aggressively preparing for the next shot. My guess is that this is because my conditioning isn't good enough, so my body is constantly asking for rest. This seems to happen at a subconscious level, leading to frustration when my on-court reactions are inexplicably delayed. How can I stay focused?

Here's the question of the week: CHRIS: My nephew and I have been hitting since he was 7.  The struggle is I’ve been trying to get him to attend to the basics like watching the ball and rotating his body as he swings at the ball.
