Manage motorsport stress

Your frame of mind has a large bearing on how you perform and the outcome of your race (your position and your enjoyment).

Much of this depends on how stressed you are during the entire event (e.g., your race weekend). By stressed, I mean:

  • How much tension you hold in your muscles. Tension will impair your movements and biomechanics – causing you to steer in a jerky way and to follow less good lines in corners.
  • How much adrenaline is coursing through your veins: some is good, too much and this can put you out of your comfort zone, distracting you from your driving/riding as you wonder what the hell is going on with your body.
  • How positive you are: are you expecting things to go badly, to start poorly, to go behind, let yourself or others down, make a fool of yourself…?

Of course, pre-race tension builds in the hours and days before an important (to you) event. Your mind, diet and sleep are all affected by your rising levels of stress. How you manage this lead-up and during the race will have a big impact on the two most important areas:

  • Your personal performance
  • Your personal enjoyment and satisfaction

If you wait for race day to start managing your stress, you will almost certainly be too late to do anything significant about it. I have developed a Sport Stress Management Programme on audio CD (or as download) to tackle your stress, anxiety, panic, tension…

My stress management programme tackles the three important areas:

  1. Physical tension (with not just one, but three proven physical relaxation techniques)
  2. Stress-related thinking
  3. Unhelpful stress-related behaviour (what you do or don’t do)

All this for less than £15. Go ahead and order your stress solution today.
