Tips to Do Fine When You're Nervous
Tips to calming down and do things fine when you're nervous.
Whenever you have a presentation or something that relates to presentations, for some people or most people spontaneously gets nervous and thinking that they'll screw up. Others don't. But for those who do, either you get spontaneously nervous and can't stop thinking about how you are going to screw up that presentation of yours and/or you get nervous because you're going to stutter. Here's some tips that might help you out. When you get nervous, try to be calm and yeah I know it's good ol' myth saying that if you calm down enough then you'll do fine but hey!
It's sorta true. While you're calming down make sure that you have everything in control as in your mind and your body. When you have your mind and your body controlled then you should review what you're going to say and/or how you're going to act.
Review them over and over and over again until you can do them with your eyes closed which you probably can. When you got everything down then you'll feel less worried/nervous because you're going to repeat exactly what you're going to say and/or act just like practice. If you're not then don't worry. When it comes to your turn what you should do is just take a moment and slow everything down for a second. Don't take too long, I mean you don't want to make them wait.
What I mean by slow everything down is I'm saying that you should say and/or act at a little below normal pace. If you're going to stutter then take a moment and say it slowly (a little below normal pace).
If you try to say things fast or say it as soon as possible then you're going to end up stuttering because all you think about is getting this presentation of yours end. Take a little deep breath and say it by step by step, if you think you're going to stutter then make a distraction instead such as clearing your throat.
What you need to do is take a moment and slow things down and be calm then do things step by step and gradually increase your pace as you wish. The trick to do your presentation or whatever you're doing....Fine is to relax, take a moment, do it at a little below normal pace, and increase your pace as you do it then stay at that pace.
