When all eyes are on you your heart beats a gazillion times faster, your palms sweat, your vision goes blurry and tbh dying at this point seems like a better option than opening your mouth to speak.

But there are little tips that can make the whole process a bit easier.

Some people find recording their speech beforehand and listening back to it works. Others like to meditate.

It may help to focus on the material rather than the people in the audience. Sipping water can help too, especially if you're prone to getting a dry mouth.

Also, going for a vigorous walk before you have to talk may help get rid of some of that adrenaline.

Because public speaking is terrifying AF but it is manageable. You may even have some handy tips of your own?
