Managing Emotion and Activation for Optimal Practice and Play

Everyone has their own sweet-spot when it comes to emotion. It is important that players learn where they play best and for what purpose. Tilting is something every esports player has either experienced themselves or seen others demonstrate and it can cause a major disruption in practice and performance and will drastically degrade enjoyment. Although common, tilting is not the only form inappropriately managed emotion. In fact, any excess of emotion can negatively impact performance. Emotional regulation is a skill that must be learned and developed to use successfully when the game demands it. Developing a plan and knowing what strategies work best for you will put you ahead of your competition!
