Like you, I was somewhat skeptical when someone told me bananas could help reduce anxiety. After reading this article, I was convinced!
For those of you who still have recitals, concerts, or auditions, consider eating some bananas before you go. I also encourage my students to do the same before a test or recital. Even if only one banana isn’t as affective as two, students have reported feeling much less nervous before a performance.
Also worth noting that bananas can help reduce swelling in your extremities.
Enjoy the article! (and the bananas)
