Stress Recess: Mental Rehearsal and Preparation


Effective communication requires practice – when you are prepared, you’ll feel much more relaxed and confident. Know your information, practice your techniques and get yourself acquainted with the area you’ll be presenting in.

Relaxation techniques are key to managing your nervous energy, when this happens, find a place to quietly put yourself at ease. Dissipate your energy by taking a walk, jumping up and down and shaking your hands – easing the physical tension will ease the mental tension.

Another way to promote a calm presence is to make relaxation or meditation a part of your everyday life. You will learn to control your emotional state by reading your favorite book, exercising, feeling and being positive.

When you know what to expect, you are less nervous – this is why rehearsal and practice is so important. Remember that you want adrenaline, just not too much. Use the rest of your energy to fuel your presentation with immaculate strength!
