Clench your fist when pressurised

Dr. Juergen Beckmann, the chair of sports psychology at the Technical University of Munich, has found a causal connection between performance under pressure and nerves in your left fist. Clenching your left hand triggers more activity in the right hemisphere of your brain, which controls automatic movements like the kind used in most athletic pressure situations. This also reduces activity in the ruminating (deep thinking) left side of the brain, preventing you from overthinking situations. Source: Tested.com.
