Do you ever get nervous before a soccer game? I totally do sometimes, especially if it's a game against one of our rivals! Sometimes I just need to get in the right mode - beast mode! This is where pre-game rituals come in :) Some people eat a specific breakfast, like peanut-butter on toast or steak and eggs. Others have a phrase that they'll say to themselves in their heads. Pre-game rituals come in all shapes and sizes! Anything goes, so long as it gets you excited and in the right mindset to play your hardest out on the field! There's no "wrong" way to do it.
One of my favorite things to do while I'm on the way to a game is to play some songs that get me pumped up and ready to rock on the field. Here's my pre-game playlist! It's totally silly, but it works every time!
- The Pokemon Theme (c'mon, it starts with "I want to be the very best!" It's perfect!)
- "Through the Fire and the Flames" by Dragonforce
- "One More Time" by Daft Punk
- "Ghosts 'n' Stuff" by Deadmau5
Usually I only get through the first two songs on my way to the soccer field, but the others are there just in case I need more!
