Your Question

I’m really nervous I have a soccer match tomorrow how do I stop being nervous? 


Hi and welcome to Ask Alex. Thank you for sharing what’s on your mind with us today.
You’ve mentioned feeling nervous about your soccer match tomorrow and wanting advice on how to overcome that nervousness. It’s important to understand that everyone experiences nerves, and they can be beneficial as long as they don’t hinder your performance. A bit of nervousness shows that the game is important to you, and you’re excited about it.
To ease your nerves and prepare, remind yourself that you and your teammates have dedicated time to practice and plan for the game. Positive self-talk can be beneficial—reassure yourself that you’re capable and committed to giving your best effort.
Creating a little distraction the night before, such as watching your favorite movie or show, can prevent overthinking and allow you to get a good night’s rest for optimal energy the next day. Maintaining a balanced diet, staying well-hydrated, and incorporating sources of carbohydrates like bananas can contribute to your performance.
Lastly, connecting with your team before the game can foster a sense of unity. We hope this advice proves helpful, and we wish you the best of luck in your soccer match. Believe in yourself, have fun, and perform your best.
Good luck,
