Looking Beyond a Stressful Event

Posted by Amanda Furness

If you want to perform well at a forthcoming work or social event but the mere thought of it dries out your mouth and makes your heart beat faster, try looking beyond the event and focus on how good you’ll feel when it’s behind you.

Remember too that research has found that if you convince yourself that you’re excited (imagine receiving a positive reaction) rather than anxious before an event, not only will your performance be better but you will also lower your feelings of anxiety.
