The great thing is: You don’t have to be an Olympic hopeful to use Rituals to help you do your best, especially when you are under pressure and the outcome matters.
Here are a few tips, so you can set up a ritual that helps you rise to the occasion:
1. Fuel Up.
Do you have a favorite pre-game snack or meal? If there is something that you eat and/or drink in the morning or before you compete that sits well with you and gives you good energy, try making that part of your ritual.
2. Look Sharp.
Do you have a favorite article of clothing? If so, having it ready to go before an important test or competition can help you to get ready to perform your best.
3. Get Focused.
Think about listening to music, journaling, or anything you can do to be calm and focused before an event. Be sure to set a positive intention when you are done, like "You got this" or "I’m ready. Let’s go."
You have more in common with world-class athletes than you may think! They get nervous and worried too, but Rituals are one way they (and YOU) can get back to the business of doing your best, especially when it matters.

Do you feel like everything is catching up with you?
Overwhelmed by your current schedule and possibly underwhelmed by the progress you’re making on initiatives that matter to you?
It’s definitely that time of year, and you are not alone. The good news is that you can have a "mini intervention" with yourself, your schedule, and the impact you’re having, so you can feel less overwhelmed and more in control and on purpose. You’ll likely be more fun to be around too:)
This "Get to Know Yourself" questionnaire will help you next-level your understanding of who you are and what’s important to you. You’ll be looking from a perspective that may be unfamiliar, but this can be a catalyst to ignite momentum and inspire consistent action.
