In an interview to Vice, Novak Djokovic commented on the effects of alcohol on him. The Serb rarely takes it as he is a professional athlete. "I haven't been drinking for years. I sometimes did and as an athlete who rarely drinks, which is well known, one drink will throw me into the machine and I don't know where I am..."
, said Djokovic. Djokovic also commented on his phylosophy of life: "I am not meditating, I am at silence, so to say. The same thing. There is a term in orthodoxy, enduring and silence. Yes, I have been practicing meditation for almost 10 years.
Meditation and doing the dishes. Meditation and watching the stars. Meditation and a bath, shower. Meditation is everything which will lead you into the state of mind where you are completely present. That is what is called a ritual.
We are a bit more conservative, and everything that we hear from the outside is taken with a certain reserve, or perhaps they have a wrong interpretation of that" We are people, we make mistakes and we have situations where we don't have a controlled emotion, we don't have controlled reactions.
We are enraged, we smash something and so on. It happened to me on the court. I smash a racket. ￼"I am spending less time in the future and more in the present. Because, when you are searching for something, happiness, love, sense of belonging somewhere, whatever, you are keeping yourself in the future and uncertainty whether something is going to happen, and what should I do in order to make it happen...
I believe in the power of visualization... You picture yourself, just like I have been picturing myself that I will win the Wimbledon some day and I made an improvised trophy at home, it is a really powerful thing... I fee that I have nothing to search for, everything I search for I have in myself"
