Something that is available to try is always practice. Try to remember that practice makes, and it will help you in the long run. This is something that can happen around either your family or also even your friends. If you’re not to the point where you can be in front of anyone, you can always watch yourself in the mirror. My best friend is very young, and she will use her toys as an audience, which has really helped her out a lot. So that is something else that you may be able to try. You never ever want to use a script while in front of an audience.
It’s fine to use one while you’re practicing. Do you want to have your script memorized? It will help take the focus off of your audience once you do have your script memorized. Don’t forget that when you have your speech ready and you feel comfortable you can try it out on a friend. Or even maybe a family member which ever makes you more comfortable. They may even be able to give some options of their own. While you are practicing try to control your breathing. This is something big because if breathing too much then it is possible for you to pass out.
And yes that has happened to people in the past. Not only is it embarrassing but could also cause health problems with anxiety more than normal. Not to mention that you don’t want to be talking but breathing so loud that people may not understand what you are even saying. And that’s not going to go well at all for you. Another thing to remember is you never want to pause while you are talking. You may forget what else was written down on your script. Or that you were going to say something that you may have not wanted to.
Sometimes that can make anxiety worse as well. Then there is the point where you may not even be able to finish your script. So this is something that you’re going to want to work on as well. That’s if you have this problem, if not then You’re doing great. You also have another option which is to where you can go to a professional and they also give trip vice to anyone that wants it.
