Hi Alois, I have this problem where I struggle to sleep well the night before a league or tournament because I am too excited and tend to overthink about the matches. I always end up not playing at my usual level during the contest. This has happened to me 2 times already and I hope that it doesn't happen again in the future. How do you calm down in the night before a tournament or league?
This is often a problem for a lot of people. I think the first thing is to accept that this might happen and also realise that sleep the one night before doesn't necessarily mean that you will play badly. In fact I have heard a lot of players say that they play better when they are tired.
The next thing to do is to start to develop a routine before bed that allows you to wind down and prepare for more sleep.
