The Self-Expression Blog’s Sandra Zimmer explains how controlling your breathing is the key to overcoming your public speaking fear. See my top takeaways from the article underneath.
- Learning to control your breathing is important to begin as a daily activity in all areas of life, not just when trying to get over your fear while giving a presentation
- Be mindful of your breathing and concentrate on the moment in which you are trying to give your speech—breathe deep and from your diaphragm
- Train your body to find this calm, centred state and coordinate it to help overcome your fear—just be aware it will take more than a couple of days to work
