Im not nervous still shaky voice when do public speaking

Postby Akila » Wed Jul 12, 2017 12:16 pm

When I do a presentation or speak for about 2 minutes in front of an audience, my voice starts shaking and gives ugly voice...But I'm not nervous...Still this happens...Some time I do good presentations, but some time I fail miserably.

Latest experience is that I did a 2-3 minute speech to the Corporate Management, and I miserably failed due to shaky voice, too much speed of the word delivery...But I'm not that kind of a bad speaker..still this happens.

This is really traumatizing...Please advice me on this how to get over this issue..

I remember in college that I would get so scared to talk in front of people. I was concerned because I was going to become a teacher, and I wondered how I would do in class as a professional. Well, I found out that I do just find. I would guess that you are new at this job. I think the more you do something; the more confident you will become. One teacher had suggested that while I waited for my turn that I should tense my body and release. I should do this over and over again. This would help to relax me. This seemed to work. As you get to know your fellow colleagues, speaking in front of them should get easier over time. This sure is a tough situation to be in. Focus on positive thoughts and try not to beat yourself up. I think our worst enemy is our own mind.

I have been reading your posts with lots of interest naturegirl . My back story I'm a little younger than you at 39 but have been smoking weed almost my entire life as far back as I can remember and that's not a lot due to the fog . please excuse my grammer as never even finished secondary school due to the weed !!!. I have a decent job not academic but still pays well have great partner brilliant kids . I'm very healthy go to the gym religiously .people looking must think I have everything an am totally together buts it all a front . the weed has gripped me more than I could ever have thought . I was able to quit for a year about three years ago but like an idiot fell back into smoking jus a little then everyday again . this is day five and I'm really down really depressed, angry ,irritable head all over the place . I'm ok when I'm busy but as soon as I stop I start having dark thoughts. not sleeping just tossing and turning and sweating .sorry if I'm ranting just wanted to share plus takes my mind off . :cry:

Do I understand this correctly? You believe you failed miserably because your voice was shaking? 2 points:
1. Others might think you're a little nervous and might feel for you and be more empathetic
2. If you weren't nervous, it could be that you need to strengthen your core and your diaphragm and improve your breathing.
Join a yoga class / Pilates or learn some breathing techniques. Hope this helps.

Perhaps speaking slower louder and pausing for breath. I have found that if you are not breathing properly that after 30 seconds or so the voice starts to shake because of the lack of breath and the body becoming more tense. Also, work on your posture and you can always practice in the mirror at home too which sometimes allows you to observe what is happening and where you are tense in your own body.
