I'd like to know how other players feel before going on court in a tournament or big game? Are you relaxed? Focused? Panicky? At the moment I'm trying to work on how to relax before a game. Does anyone have any techniques that puts them in the right frame of mind for badminton? Mental preperation has been brought up on this forum before, but I haven't seen this subject in depth and I'd really like to know what makes you relaxed and focused before a game if you can do it. Do you meditate? Listen to music? Run around and stretch? Talk to other players? Or does anyone have any other secrets they'd like to share? Like Accupuncture or Relaxing through smells? Massage? Or is there a particular piece of music that gets you in the mood?
