5 Tenets to Combat Performance Anxiety

  1. Practice, practice, practice - If you've done your preparation, you know you are ready and it can give you confidence.
  2. Create a pre-performance routine - Have a set routine before a performance.
  3. Stay in your lane - Focus on your own performance, not what others are doing.
  4. Use adrenaline for fuel - Use caffeine as an ergogenic.
  5. Add a "so" to your "what ifs?" - Visualization is key.

Action Items from the Hosts Kelly: Think about something coming up and give yourself a “So what?” so that the event is not so scary. Maria: Focus on the process and focus on what you are doing -- not what others are doing. Do what you do and enjoy it in the moment.
