The Fundamental Principle of Fashion
Hello my dearest readers, if you are reading this then you almost definitely have a big game or competition coming up in the next few days that you are trying to prepare well in advance for. You’ll know as well as I do that coming up to big games and competitions one tends to get very superstitious and very cautious – me particularly. As this is something many people feel, I thought that I would compile a list of the things that I do to prepare for a game or competition.
- Stay hydrated- no matter what the sport is, your body needs to be able to survive at top standard for the duration of the game and one way to ensure this is to make sure that you are well hydrated. Im quite bad at drinking water but I am always particularly conscious of my water intake in the few days coming up the the game.
- Visualise what you personally need to do- I always find that I play better when I have a clear head and have an idea of what I want to do. For example, if you are a soccer player, watch a view videos on goal scoring and kick outs to mentally prepare yourself for the tasks ahead.
- Eat Healthy- I am definitely not the healthiest person in the world but in the few days leading up to a game and especially the morning of, I am particularly conscious of eating a lot of protein and fiber filled food to give me that extra kick in the game!
- Ensure that you are at peak physical fitness- This means that if you have a strained muscle or ligament, be cautious of it in the days leading up to the match and care for it using heat and ice packs.
- Stay Calm- Naturally it is hard to stay chill about a semi final or a final but it is always easier to play to your full potential if you stay calm on the field and treat this game like any other.
- Warm up and Stretch Properly- in my opinion, this is one of the most important parts in regards to game preparation as I personally always play better when I am warm, pumped and ready to go. It is also a safety issue as you are much more likely to get injured if you havn’t stretched and warmed up properly.
