Last Minute Jitters?

jumping jacksHow many of us get jittery before our performance?  Almost all of us!  But there is a way to ease our stage fright.

This year, I attended a workshop given by Vicki Conway, who teaches “DevelopMental” Fitness.  As we await our turn to perform, she says, adrenalin is rushing through our bodies, causing us to experience the fight or flight syndrome. The way to calm down is to do Integration WarmUp back stage. By doing   8 – 12 sets of jumping  jacks among other exercises, with hands and feet always starting and stopping together, we can help redistribute the adrenalin and calm our bodies. Try to drink a glass of water before and after the work-out. Now we are ready for our performance!
