Mind and mental training will help to prepare well before the competitions. Relaxation is of great importance to any athlete striving for peak performance. Relaxation skills can help athletes reduce mental (self-doubts, worry, etc.) and physical anxiety (nausea, shaking, etc.), while increasing concentration and performance. Relaxation techniques can be used prior to competition or, if practiced enough, during competition. There are many techniques for keeping cool prior to and during competition. Breath controlled relaxation, meditation, and blank meditation tools are used for controlling nervousness/anxiety. Grit and resilience are very effective psychological mechanism.
