Try embracing your sweaty palms and racing heartbeat as signs of excitement. This reappraisal of anxiety can help stop nerves from overwhelming you.
Encouraging excitement can prime you to see the task as an opportunity, whereas trying to calm down can make you see the challenge as a threat.
Make it about the ideas you want to share.
Take the focus off of yourself and putting it instead onto the valuable information you are going to deliver. That way, the speech becomes an exchange of ideas and it creates a place of passion and purpose.
Oftentimes, the reason that we mess up is that we start paying too much attention to the details.
When you’re speaking and you’re trying to get the point across, think about the 3 points you want to get across. This way, you'll focus on the outcome of what you’re trying to say rather than every word coming out of your mouth.
Exercise can reduce the body’s biological stress response. If this fits into your lifestyle and routine, go ahead and do it as part of your preparation for public speaking.
But don’t make the exercise a need you have to fulfill in order for a talk to go well. You want to be careful about having rituals, but not getting so attached to them.
