Podcast: Worried about an upcoming talk or presentation? Visualisation and Mental Rehearsal can work wonders.
Hi, I'm Pete Mosley. I'm a coach, speaker and author of The Art of Shouting Quietly – a guide to self-promotion for introverts and other quiet souls. Extrovert or introvert, quiet or loud, confidence can be an issue for all of us. Here, I talk about the role of Visualisation and Mental Rehearsal in reducing anxiety.
Every time we go into an unfamiliar situation, anxiety levels increase. The larger the number of unknowns that are in play, the more discomfort we feel. If it's something special, out of the ordinary or there's a lot hanging on it, anxiety levels can go through the roof. Here's a podcast with a few practical suggestions to reduce the discomfort. Listening time 6 minutes 42 seconds.
