1, 2, 3 go! How to prepare yourself before a performance?
This picture is taken on my first day at the television station, in the studio - a few minutes before having my debut as a television presenter.
Whatever field you work in, then I’m convinced that you know the feeling of ‘the few minutes before’ a meeting/session/show/performance and so on.
In my experience, then you have to have a few things straight (mindset wise and physical) in order to make a great performance. And in order to get those things straight, then you need a bit of preparation. Here’s what I learned works the best:
1. Visualisation is a really great tool. Before attending the meeting/session/performance, then visualise it from start to end. How do you want to feel? Behave? How do you want to enter and leave the room?
2. Body language: before entering xxx, then make sure you have empowered and opened yourself up using body language. So instead of sitting down, with your arms crossed while looking at your phone (the few minutes before you have to do your ‘performance’) - then stand up, get your body moving, keep your neck straight, your face looking a bit up and with your arms above the head. This is named a ‘power position’ for a reason.
3. Keep your mind and body healthy by eating properly, get your 8 hours of sleep, drink water, find peace in meditation and so on. Your general state of wellbeing will have an influence on the quality of your performance sooner or later.
4. Listen to music, or in some other way: get your vibe straight. Music is a great tool for this.
I hope this was beneficial for you! Go nail it. xx J
