Reframing stress: Stage fright can be your friend

Reframing stress: Stage fright can be your friend | Coaching Leaders |

Fear of public speaking tops death and spiders as the nation's number one phobia. But new research shows that learning to rethink the way we view our shaky hands, pounding heart, and sweaty palms can help people perform better both mentally and physically.

Would you believe my son in this photo suffers from stage fright? Well he has for many years and yet with the right help and mindset he has overcome it and is now back in the driving seat...this article explains that before speaking in public and presenting we should try to reframe any stress, this can then help us to perform better.

Befriending Fear: Working with Worry and Anxiety | Mindful

Befriending Fear: Working with Worry and Anxiety | Mindful | Coaching Leaders |

"If you’re like most people, you might be surprised to see just how often  fear and anxiety affect your life. Some people think of these as distinct experiences. They use the word fear to describe our reaction to immediate physical danger (the car going into a skid or our child running into the road) while anxiety involves  worry (feeling nervous before an important talk or big test). The
distinction isn’t critical, however. Mindfulness practice helps us see that our minds and bodies respond similarly in all of these situations and at least some fear or anxiety shows up quite regularly. It can help us work with both the little moments of fear and anxiety that pass through our minds all the time and the big ones that can be overwhelming."
