[ Background Conversations ]>>One of the biggest struggles that people have
with public speaking is that they get nervous. It’s not something that we do on a daily basis. So there’s time for those nerves
to really build up when we’re asked to give a presentation or an interview. What causes those nerves? It’s a burst of adrenaline. You get that fight or flight response because
it’s a situation that you’re not sure about. And when you get that, so many
things can happen in your body. First, your voice can change. Your pitch can rise into the rafters
or sometimes it can cause you to not breathe as much as you should. And when that happens, for some people, their
pitch goes way up high and then other people who may already have a deeper
voice, theirs can get very gravelly. So what do we do to combat these nerves? One thing is just to breathe. Breathe before your presentation and take a
slight pause even during your presentation. Just breathe in and out slowly. Another tip is have an image in your
head of something that relaxes you, something that’s familiar and calming. It can be an image of your family, of
your pet and if you’re just starting out and maybe it’s hard to keep that
image in your head, have a picture. Attach it to your notes, attach it to your
laptop, somewhere where you can see it and you can just take that quick
glance over and remember to breathe. [ Background Conversations ]
