Have you ever been nervous before a performance for an audience? Ever got jitters before recording your song in front of a camera?
Here are some tips backed by neuroscience and used by Olympic Athletes.
#1) Take 7 deep breaths. This calms your nervous system and stops the overthinking cycle.
#2) Visualize yourself in the place you love the most. Use your 5 senses.
#3) Visualize yourself performing your song going perfectly and playing with freedom. Imagine your clothes, the room, and all your surroundings. Again use your 5 senses. Focus on a confident finish and feeling good!
This is not a one-and-done strategy. Your nervous system improves and repairs over time. This must be done consistently to improve results.
Here's a good schedule:
A few weeks out from the performance
Day before the performance
Day of performance
