Reduce self-awareness: don’t think about the performance, think of it as a task to make it through, focus on the topic. ▯ 2. Breathe: Really. If you can focus on your breath, from your diaphragm, not your chest, you will feel better and your words will have more power. ▯ 3. Relax: Easier said than done. Warm-up for speaking like you would for exercise. ▯ 4. Be Prepared: If you are not confident in what you are about to say, it will start a snowball effect that will lead to greater anxiety. ▯ 1.
