In the final race of her track career, Cara Bradley beat her personal best by a remarkable six seconds. Until then Bradley had been a so-so athlete hampered by pre-race jitters and self-doubt. She set about understanding how she could replicate this experience in every area of life. She has distilled what she found into moving out of over-thinking and over-doing and into fully being alive. These techniques for stilling busy mind, putting body and mind in sync, and cultivating awareness and strength are simple but require practice and attention. The reward is what she calls high voltage living, the ability to experience what Bradley did on the track not by accident, or in only a few memorable moments but on purpose, every day.
