DAILY DIARY_THINK IN ENGLISH CHALLENGE
A news item caught my attention today. That is the news about the electricity rate hike. It seems that all the major Japanese electronics companies are going to raise their prices starting in June. In Japan, we rely on thermal power for our electricity supply. It seems that the increase in fuel prices used in thermal power generation will result in higher electricity prices. I work at my home now, so the electricity prices might be increased this summer.
Four secrets from sports psychology you can use in everyday life | BBC Ideas
For the top sports stars, not just physical development is important, but also psychology.
And It turns out that sports psychology is equally relevant in everyday life. The first is that being nervous is good. Being anxious and nervous is totally normal. If you struggle to calm yourself down, you will still feel anxious. Whenever you feel nervous, tell yourself “I am not nervous, I am excited”. Excitement is an emotion that will help you feel positive and look forward to the challenge. Reframing anxiety as excitement works because both are states of high arousal. The second is that you do not do all the work yourself. Learning to let others support you along the way is as important as taking care of yourself. There is no shame in getting help when you are trying to achieve something difficult. The third is mental rehearsal. Many of the world’s top athletes use visualisation techniques before a big event. The more realistic this visualisation and preparation is, the more motivated and confident you will be, and the better your performance will be. The fourth is to talk to yourself. This helps you to control anxiety, to build your confidence and to provide focus. So, whenever you do something, talk to yourself that you can do it. I often gotget nervous and always told tell myself to calm down. However, I realized that it was wrong. The next time I feel anxious and nervous, I will try to turn it into excitement.
