I try to temporarily reduce the number of tournaments played or the average buy-in during downstream periods in order to try to play a few sessions on a weaker field with increased concentration and regain my confidence. A short break in the game for a couple of days also helps me - I use it to rest and spend those days on analysis of mistakes or just theory. I think the most important thing is to learn not to freak out when moving, unfortunately, I have not yet developed this skill to perfection, but I would like to.
Tilt helps me understand that I've started making negative decisions. This is a signal to start analyzing the game in order to determine the moment when errors began in the game, what needs to be changed and what needs to be paid attention to first.
its mental discipline.. its like when a sports player gets ejected during a fight costing screwing his team over with their exit because they couldn't keep their cool.
Poker requires you to keep composure.. how do you do it? Practice, training, and more practice the biggest factor is being aware of your problem and working on it.. also learning when to step away for a little bit to cool off from the table
