How to Manage Stress in Matches
Do you feel anxious or pressure when you play competitive tennis? Does this anxiety ruin your enjoyment of tennis?
In this episode, Dr. Cohn answers a question from a reader about how to manage anxiety and stress when playing tennis.
JENNY: “I get really bad anxiety and stress playing tennis. I do enjoy playing it and practicing it, but I don’t really enjoy the competitive side because of all the stress it gives me. Instead of doing tennis, I was maybe deciding on doing track instead. I’m pretty good at that too and not scared. It’s fun and I enjoy it. I’m just scared that I might regret doing track in the future and not tennis. I would just really like some advice.”
