How to Avoid Being Nervous?

Do you often feel nervous and do not think you can control it? Is there something you want to do but get nervous every time you attempt it? Nervousness can be dealt with effectively by using coping skills, practicing relaxation techniques, focusing on your health, and changing your thinking.
Distract yourself. Distraction is simply paying attention to something else instead of your nervous feelings. Distraction can be a very helpful tool in order to reduce negative emotions in the short-term.
Move around. There is a reason actors have warm-up techniques involving their body before going out on stage. Moving your body releases tension in your muscles and can reduce your nervousness or “jitters.” Often when we are nervous our body reacts, and we may notice tension, stomach upset (also known as butterflies), or even headaches. This is the consequence of pent up nervousness in the body. When you move, some of this tension can be released in a therapeutic way.
Face your fear. The best way to reduce feeling nervous about something is to do it, and then do it again. Practice doing what are you nervous about over and over. This may increase your confidence and reduce your nervousness.
Consider treatment. If your nervousness or anxiety disrupts your daily life in that you have trouble completing your obligations or interacting socially, it may benefit you to seek professional help.
Do deep breathing exercises. Deep breathing is relatively simple and can help to lower your nervousness physiologically. Taking deep breaths may assist you in reducing butterflies in the stomach, jitters and tenseness in the body.
Try progressive muscle relaxation. Progressive muscle relaxation is one relaxation technique that can be very helpful to calm yourself down and reduce excess tension.
Start by tensing your toes for 5 seconds, then relax them for 10-20 seconds. Then move slowly up your body and tense and relax most of your muscle groups all the way to the top of your head.
Meditate. This is an ancient way to remove stress, pain and panic from your body. Meditation is typically conducted in a quiet, safe space. You can sit or lie down. Usually meditation is done with the eyes closed but you can keep your eyes open and look at a specific spot if you choose. Clear the thoughts out of your mind and attempt to simply sit with yourself.

Change your nonverbal communication. When we are feeling nervous, scared, or intimidated we often slouch in order hide or make our body small. If you are slouching you are telling the world non-verbally that you are not confident. Since behaviors are closely linked to feelings, if we change our body and nonverbal communication we can begin to feel differently. Standing and sitting up straight are great ways to exemplify confident and positive nonverbal communication.

Practice mindfulness. Mindfulness is focusing on what you are currently doing, feeling, seeing, and what is going on in your environment. Mindfulness helps us focus on the here-and-now instead of worrying about the future or thinking about what has happened in the past. It is especially helpful when we find ourselves nervous about a scary event that is about to occur.
Practice grounding exercises. Grounding can be especially helpful in times of nervousness, stress, and anxiety. Grounding helps you become centered and also serves as a momentary distraction from your emotion and refocuses your energy on something concrete.
