Speaking in public is probably one of the most challenging things to do especially if you have xenophobia. If you want to understand more about xenophobia or stage fright, we have published an article that you can read and you can just browse that through our website. This time we will be talking about the anxiety that you will experience before speaking in public.
The anxiety is there. And mind you, even the most experienced speakers go through this. Some of my friends who happened to be great public speakers confessed that they also feel anxiety before speaking. Well, not all the time, but it depends upon the situation.
When you are there on your seat waiting for your name to be called to speak in front, there you will feel the anxiety. And your anxiety is composed of negative thoughts and expectations that you might be embarrassed in front. Well, this is a common feeling.
This article talks about the ways that you can do to reduce your anxiety. The reason why we used the word reduce is because the anxiety is still there, but the fact that you have reduced it means a lot. Well, I do hope that after reading this article you will be able to see yourself as a new person with new level of confidence in speaking in front of people. Of course this is something that you need, especially if the reason why you do his is because this is already part of your job.
So, what are the things that you need to do? Well, let us start.
Think that nobody’s perfect and you don’t have to. The fear of being embarrassed is what fuels your anxiety. This is the reason why you feel anxious while your time to speak is getting closer. If you are struggling with your anxiety, bear in mind that nobody’s perfect and that you don’t have to be perfect speaking in front.
You are afraid to commit mistakes, right? You are afraid that people may ridicule you. Well, you need to do your best and do not just settle on being mediocre but do not every promote perfection. After your speech, you will notice that it is not perfect. There will always be room for improvement. So, the best thing to do is look at your experience talking in public as an inspiration to strive to become better – not to be perfect. It’s a matter of looking at your mistakes and learning from it. Another thing that you need to consider is you cannot please everyone.
Think of a good result. Well, if you are thinking that you will fail, there is a high tendency that you will. So, the best thing to do is for you to visualize a good result. You need to see yourself speaking in front with confidence and think in advance the reaction of the people who are listening to you.
While you are in your seat, imagine of something good. It is your way to think positive about your situation. When you are able to see yourself finishing your talking successfully, you will lessen your anxiety and you will gain more confidence.
Do not look at yourself as a loser in front. Take note that it is public speaking and you need to be confident enough to talk. If you are having problems acquiring confidence to speak in public, you can read our article published about that to learn more.
Be prepared. This is something that you need not to neglect. The thing is being prepared will make it sure that you know what you are talking about. There are so many kinds of speech. You can speak in front in an impromptu style or you can have it memorized. No matter what style you are using, you still have to prepare. And preparation takes days, or weeks, or months – depending on the event.
Being prepared is not just by means of learning or memorizing your speech. But you have to prepare also in terms of the things that you will wear. You should wear appropriate clothes for the occasion so that you will be able to lessen your insecurities. When you are prepared, think of setting yourself free from worries. Well, you will not go to a battle without training or bringing with you your arms. Think of your public speaking as a battle. You have to be prepared.
Be excited. Aside from being prepared, you have to be excited, too. When you are excited about the event, you will not be pressured to do this. I understand that sometimes you are being pushed by someone out of necessity to speak in public. If this is the situation, learn to love what you are about to do. Well, things will be easier for you if you love what you are doing. Be excited about it.
If you are excited about speaking in public, you might want to pull the hands of time. If you are on your seat, you may want to stand already. Well, I am not saying that you need to be overconfident about it – just be excited. If you have that excitement in you, you will also enjoy preparing for it. You will enjoy writing your speech and choosing what to wear, too. This is something that you need to consider.
Forget about your past experiences.One of the biggest reasons why you are anxious is the fact that you have a bad experience in the past. Well, if the is the issue, you need to learn to forget about your past experience. When I say past experience, it has something to do with speaking in public. Well, this is a challenging thing – the reason why you need to exert effort in forgetting.
And while it is challenging, it is possible. Think of the fact that even the greatest speakers in history experienced failures. Well, nobody is born expert. People will always start at the bottom as beginners. But by continuous practice and learning from experiences, they will be able to master their skills. So, the best thing to do is learn from your past experience. Take your past experience positively and see the good in it. When you do this, you will be able to rise above your situation that will eventually decrease your anxiety.
Get enough sleep.There are so many benefits of sleeping. The thing is if you will read our published article, you will see that sleeping can make you more focused and concentrated on what you are doing. This will help boost your memory especially if you are speaking in public. I understand that the worst thing that could ever happen to you as a speaker is to forget what to say in front. Well, you are prone to this if you will not sleep well.
When you get enough sleep, you have a healthier mind. And when you come to the point of forgetting what to say in front and you suddenly stopped, you can easily think of an adlib. Well, I admire speakers who can easily think of something to say knowing the fact that they are lost in their speaking. Consider this also so that you will be able to decrease your anxiety before speaking in public.
Be friendly with people around. If you are on your seat already, it is good to look around and smile at people. Do not just be silent there, instead talk to them. Think of it. If you know the people who will listen to you, you have a lower level of anxiety. But if the people who will listen to you are not familiar, that is when anxiety is higher. With this, the best thing to do is get to know them. Well, I am not saying that you need to roam around. It’s just that you need to show positive attitude towards them by smiling. Being friendly will help decrease your anxiety.
Have an eye to eye contact. When you are talking in front, have an eye to eye contact with the people who are listening. Just relax and enjoy what you are doing. If possible, prepare an anecdote so that they will laugh. When you are able to make them laugh, you will notice that you are gaining confidence to speak in front. Talk in front as if you are talking to one person. You can practice this one.
Come early. You will surely increase in anxiety if you will come late. The thing is you will get tired walking fast and running just to arrive in the venue. With this, you have to come early. To do this, sleep early at night. There is nothing wrong with coming early. When you do this, you still have time to familiarize yourself with the venue. Take note that if you are in control of the venue you will be able to deliver your speech effectively.

When your loved ones are experiencing harassment, and they have shared this to you, it is about time to do something. And do not just do something without knowing how. With proper knowledge, you will see the good result. So here are the things that you can do to deal with harassment.
Evaluate yourself if you are really being harassed. Well, sometimes it depends upon our perception of things. But, to make it sure, you have to evaluate yourself. Are you really being harassed or not? There are people who can take jokes and there are people who are not. Our tolerance on the things that we experience around us differs. This is the reason why you have to make it sure you are really being harassed. Observe around you.You know yourself. Try to evaluate yourself if you are only being emotional and overreacting or that person went too far with his words and actions. Well, if you do this, you will be able to recognize what a harassment from not. It pays to evaluate yourself first.
Tell others to stop doing what you don’t like them to do. In continuation to the first one, once you have evaluated yourself and figured out the things that you don’t want others to do to you, tell them to stop. Sometimes people around us don’t stop doing things because nobody told them to stop. It is about time to tell them to stop. Tell them that you don’t like being catcalled. Tell them that you don’t like being called by a certain alias. Tell them that what they are doing to you is a form of harassment and bullying.
There are times when it is hard to confront them personally because you are protecting something like your friendship. If this is the issue, you can write a letter or tell someone to tell him. Well, I cannot promise you that that person will not be offended, but that is better than experiencing harassment over and over. And one thing, once you have done that do not ever apologize.
If telling him doesn’t stop him from harassing you, tell him to stay away from you. Let’s say you have already written a letter or confronted that person to stop harassing you but he doesn’t stop. If that is the case, it is about time to tell him to distant from you. Tell him to stop contacting you. Tell him to stop dealing with you. And you can do something about it. You can stop your conversation with that person by not sending messages on social media nor text messages. If that person happened to be someone you see everyday, you can set an avoidance plan. You can also tell that person to stop getting close to you. Just let him feel that you are not comfortable with what he is doing.
Cut your connection with that person on phone and on social media. Another thing that you can do to stop being harassed is to stop making conversation with that person. If things are becoming worse, you can delete the number of that person from your phone or you can also change your number. If that person happened to be a contact of yours in social media, you can also unfriend or block that person. When you don’t have any contact with him, you will see things will become better.
Keep every evidences of harassment. There are times when you have done everything to cut your connection with that person and still he harasses you. If that is the case, you have to make things documented. Do not delete the messages on the phone and on social media of that person harassing you because you will make use of that as an evidence or proof of harassment.
Nowadays, gadgets are so powerful, the reason why you have to make use of them to document or record anything that has happened to you. Well, when a person tries to harass you, you can set-up a hidden camera in with you so that you will be able to record something that will make your statements stronger when you filed a complaint. You can also take note of the people who have witnessed the incident.
Report the incident to someone in the position. It depends upon the location of the harassment. If it happened in your school, the best thing to do is report it to the principal, teacher, administrator, etc. This is in order for that person to receive disciplinary action. If it happened in work place, you can report it to your boss, manager, administrator, etc. Just report the incident to someone in the position. He has the power to intervene. If this is done, you and that person will have to talk in front of him to settle the issue, looking forward that things will change for the better.
Call the police if it becomes threatening. If the harassment comes to a certain level wherein it already threatens your life and your security, it is about time to call the police. This is the reason why you have with you always the emergency numbers. There are instances when that person who is harassing you will stop what he is doing the moment he notices that you are reporting him to the police. Again, you should always have the contact number of police precincts near you. This is for your safety. Another thing is if you and your family is in grave danger, a restraint order is the best solution. You will file this one and you will go through court hearing.
If violation of the restraining order happens, report it to the police immediately. Once a restraining order is issued, the person who is harassing you will have to abide with it. So, if there is a circumstance when it is violated by that person, report it to the police immediately. That might result to criminal charges filed against him. Well, you have to be aware of your rights.
Make sure everyone in your circle are aware of what is happening to you. This is something that you need to do so that you will increase your safety. The people around you should know what is going on with you. This is due to the fact that there are instances when the harasser will ask for information about you. If they are being informed about the name of the harasser, they will be warned not to disclose any information about you. You have to inform also the members of the family about your location for emergency purposes. No matter how near you are going, you have to tell them. This is for your safety.
Be aware of your social media activities. If there is a threat in your life, it is about time to be aware of your every activity in social media. Well, it is good to post your activities in social media because this is a form of self-expression. But take note that you are going through something, the reason why you have to limit your disclosure of your information. When you are being stalked by someone, do not ever show your location or the place where you are going. Nowadays, gadgets have the capacity to automatically show your location and that is something that you have to take note. Being aware of your social media activities is a must.
Practice self defense. For emergency purposes, you have to practice self defense. You can enroll on a formal training if you want to.

Find something to do that will alter your nail biting problem. The reason why you are fond of biting your nails is that you have nothing to do. When you are listening to your teacher speaking in front, you have a very high tendency to bite your nails. Again, this is due to the fact that you are doing nothing that time except listening. So, in order to distract your nail biting habit, you have to find something to do. I should say, it is good to take down notes while your teacher is talking.

You can consider the things that you love doing and make yourself busy. Finding a hobby is not something that you will push yourself to engage in a certain activity without your heart in it. As much as possible, make it something that you really love doing. Personally, I’m not so much into painting but I love music. So, it has been my hobby to play musical instruments of different kinds at home.
Finding a hobby is a perfect way to combat the habit of nail biting. If you want to stop this habit of yours, do something else. This is something worth doing.
Chew gum if necessary. I did this before. Whenever I am in idle mode, I chewed gum. The reason for this is to make my mouth busy.

Stop nail biting slowly. If you come to the point wherein you find it hard to gradually stop biting your nails, do it slowly. While you are biting your nails, think of the consequences of doing it. Observe yourself while doing this and stop if you have the power to do this. Well, I know that it is not that easy, the reason why you have something to do to distract yourself from doing this. If you are already there, do something else before you will put your finger in your mouth. It requires discipline on your part but it pays off.
Cover your nails with adhesive tape. Another method that you can do in the beginning so that you will not be able to bite your nails is by covering them with adhesive tape. When your nails are covered by this, you will not be able to bite them. Continue covering them for a period of time until such time that you don’t have the urge to bite your nails anymore. When you have finally succeeded in your goal to stop biting your nails, that is the time when you are going to stop putting adhesive tape, too.
Be persistent. If you really want to stop biting your nails, make it your goal and be persistent with it. Do not give up if you experience being drifted back to your course.
