1. Eat and sleep.

An apple a day…

Eat: You’re an athlete. Eat like one. If you haven’t already, just for a week, ditch the junk food. Ditch the soda. Fuel your body with healthy foods. You’ll feel better and your body will work more efficiently.

Sleep: Get plenty of it, especially if you’ll be up early for travel. Your brain and body will function better on good sleep. You’ll also be less stressed.

2. Stretch every day.

You should do this every day anyway, but it might be time to update the habit. Stretching prevents injury & helps relax your muscles. Stretching before your tournament will also help you kick high in competition!

3. Every time you think about the tournament, smile!
