Tips from us on how to keep your nerves calm when popping the question
Controlling proposal nerves is key to a successful day. Proposing to someone you want to spend the rest of your life with is rather daunting. You will experience all kinds of emotions and may not know how to deal with them. Here are some tips that should help to avoid letting your nerves get the better of you.
If you wake up in a cold sweat the morning of the proposal, you are not alone. Take some time in the morning to relax and calm your nerves. A workout at the gym or a short jog will work, but even just taking an hour to relax with a cup of coffee can do wonders to get you into the right frame of mind.
If you know your partner well enough, you will know what she loves and how she feels about you. This should help keep you calm and help to comfort you, knowing that she is the one.
Don’t memorize a speech that you will most likely forget. Plan a few words before and speak from the heart. Not only is this a more meaningful and honest way of confessing your love to your partner, but by keeping it short and sweet, you are less likely to forget what you want to say and stay calm. Keep in mind how the moment will be over as quickly as it begins, so savour every second.
Make sure you know where you are going to put your ring. Fumbling to find the pocket you put the ring in will only add to your nerves.
If you are prone to suffering from anxiety, try a few breathing exercises and take some rescue remedy.
Life happens, so be prepared to go with the flow. Don’t rush the proposal just because the sun is about to set or dinner is nearly over—wait until the moment really feels right.
