How do you stay cool during a game?

AxiomaticDelphic

Whenever I start playing a game, I start to get nervous. My brain starts to heat up fast that I blunder a lot of pieces. So how do you stay cool? Is there some kind of psychological trick? Thanks for your time.

It is not about the clock actually. It is about the opponent. The position he plays look really complex when in fact it is easy.

Just know that you're gonna lose anyway of you're opponent is significantly stronger than you. Keeping that in mind, your opponent is worrying about getting defeated.

Just wait for @IAMBBW to say you're welcome for the "Thanks for your time" line... But anyways, listen to some songs and ..... well I don't get nervous, so I can't give much.... maybe use your hands to think about the game and use your nose to make the moves

Different things work for different people. Try checking if you blunder against higher-rated opponents or against guys weaker than you are. It might help to understand if the root cause if fear or nonchalance. If, as you said, you are afraid of blundering, then it might help to do a blunder check. Look at the position after discarding your previous thoughts about your chosen move; this helps (at least, it helps me!) to cut down on blunders. However, blitz and bullet games allow no time for second-guessing yourself, so you got to be careful.
