How do you guys deal with pre-launch nervousness?

I'm launching a product in beta soon. Even though I'm confident of the product and marketing material, I still have those nervous stomach twists you get before taking a risk. Any suggestions to deal with this :) I believe mental health is very important for entrepreneurs.

I still get them. :) I think the key is to recognize that the launch often doesn't matter if you zoom out.

Exercise, meditation and just powering through it for me. The anxiety goes away the faster you do the thing, until the next milestone anyway.

What works for me is - I ask myself a question "Why would I be nervous?". I've done everything I could to make things happen with the best outcome possible) Now I should relax and enjoy the results!

@mariah_macinnes Have you been able to keep it up this whole time?
Saw a video where Paul G handles this question. He asks "Do you remember which date Google/fb/any other company was launched"?. So launch is a small part of what you are building.

Going out in the nature and running. Sport and sweat in general is a good way to get rid of stressing thoughts…
