PerformZen was originally made with musicians in mind; specifically orchestra violinists. One of the co-founders of PerformZen was a career violinist and in over 15 years of playing professionally, had never been able to overcome the crushing fear and panic that would overwhelm her before a performance. The performance anxiety that came with her job got so bad that she took a break and dedicated herself to finding a solution to this problem. Fast forward two years & several collaborations with experts in the medical & nutrition industry, and we have PerformZen Calm Performance Formula.
From lots of testing and feedback from users, we identified that there were several particular use-cases that PerformZen Calm Performance Formula really helps with by effectively combating performance anxiety & helping the user focus on clear & creative thought: Public Speaking, tests and exams, singing, acting, athletic sports, job interviews and (first?) dates. Several of our testers were shocked at how much PerformZen helped during these situations. Take a look at some customer feedback to learn more.
PerformZen for singing performance anxiety
If you’ve experienced stage fright before a musical performance, then you might be familiar with some of the symptoms.
It’s your hands sweating and your voice trembling as you wait backstage. Maybe the heart starts racing and the throat gets dry. In severe cases, you might even get nauseous.
The physical symptoms of performance anxiety also affect your confidence. You may second-guess your ability to perform and start going through negative scenarios in your imagination.
For some, performance anxiety can be debilitating to the point that it can ruin a musician’s career.
PerformZen’s unique formulation makes it an ideal pre-performance supplement that helps achieve a relaxed but focused state.
Ingredients like GABA, L-theanine, and Ginkgo Biloba will relieve stress, quickly calm the nerves, and keep the physical symptoms of performance anxiety at bay.
Other ingredients like magnesium, vitamin B6, and theacrine will increase your mental focus so you can confidently walk out on stage and deliver a powerful performance for your audience.
PerformZen for public speaking performance anxiety
Multiple surveys have shown that more people list public speaking as their number one fear, outranking the fear of flying or even death!
But being able to speak to an audience is a valuable skill.
Even if you’re not delivering speeches, you might still have to speak at a business meeting or conference. Or you may have to address a group of people at a social gathering, like a wedding or a funeral.
The medical term for the fear of public speaking is known as glossophobia.
For people who experience glossophobia, the fear of speaking to an audience activates their body’s stress response. Similar to musical performance anxiety, they experience sweating, trembling, pounding heartbeat, dry throat, and other symptoms of stage fright.
Taking PerformZen an hour or so before a speaking engagement will stop the jitteriness and calm the nerves. It will allow you to focus on your preparation or your pre-speech routine.
PerformZen will also increase mental focus and give you a clean boost of energy to help you deliver your speech with enthusiasm so you can impress, entertain, and persuade your audience.
PerformZen for acting performance anxiety
Actors are another group that experiences widespread performance anxiety. And even the most successful actors aren’t immune from it.
One example is Hugh Grant. More than once, he considered retiring due to the awful panic attacks he would get when the cameras started rolling. In his words, he would freeze like a ribbit, sweat like a bull, and lose his ability to think or speak.
Like music or public speaking, acting performance anxiety comes down to your body’s stress response.
It could be your fear of a negative outcome that triggers your stress response. Maybe you fear rejection, humiliation, or the loss of an acting role.
It puts your stress hormones into overdrive which results in sweating, trembling, nausea, and other symptoms of performance anxiety.
PerformZen can help actors calm the jitters, just like speakers and musicians.
GABA, L-theanine, and Ginkgo biloba will help with the stress response and reduce excessive mental chatter.
GABA and L-theanine also increase alpha brain waves, which are associated with a wakefully relaxed state, and theta brain waves, which promote creativity.
PerformZen will help you achieve a calm, focused, and creative state that allows your best acting performance to effortlessly flow out of you, whether on stage or at an audition.
PerformZen for exam anxiety
Most of us have experienced exam anxiety at one point or another.
Maybe we procrastinated all semester and had to pull an all-nighter the day before the exam. But when it came time to put the pen to paper, the mind went blank.
And it’s not just after all-nighters. If the perceived stakes of the exam are high, or you’ve done poorly in the past, or you fear criticism from your parents/teachers, all of these factors could cause you to experience exam anxiety. Even if you’ve prepared well.
Taking PerformZen before an exam will help you get out of your own head, think calmly, and score your best on your exam.
PerformZen for sports anxiety
As an athlete, you want the ability to excel under pressure. With the game on the line, you want to hit that perfect shot, make that precise throw, or kick the ball to the back of the net.
But to do that consistently, you need nerves of steel. It’s often the quality that separates the great from the good. People refer to these elite athletes as “clutch”.
One of the superpowers that these “clutch” athletes seem to have is that they seem to be completely unaffected by the fact that there is a world championship on the line.
They can do that because they’ve trained their minds to remain calm under pressure. They know that they’ll perform their best if they don’t get in their own way by overthinking it.
You can do the same. Along with training, practice, and physical fitness, you can include meditation, breathing exercises, and visualization techniques in your routine.
For an added boost of calm confidence under pressure, try PerformZen an hour or so before a game.
