According to KTLA public speaking can be stressful, especially when it comes with the job. Witness King George VI, whose stuttering set off a royal crisis when he had to speak calmly to his jittery subjects during World War II.
According to KTLA public speaking can be stressful, especially when it comes with the job. Witness King George VI, whose stuttering set off a royal crisis when he had to speak calmly to his jittery subjects during World War II.Some of us can relate — and it has nothing to do with stuttering. Julie Deardorff in Julie’s Health Club blog reports on how to overcome public speaking anxiety. Here’s what she says:
“To combat the embarrassing blushing, shaking or sweating that may occur, invoke the ‘quieting response,’ a five-minute technique that occurs automatically with practice, said [Jonathan] Berent. Try it minutes before any event where you know you’ll be noticeably nervous, as long as you have four or five minutes to yourself.”
Few would compare the experience of communicating with a plastic surgeon for the first time with public speaking, but for many patients it is just as traumatic. Some patients get extremely nervous and may perspire, or lose their train of thought while speaking. Dr. O’Toole is committed to helping patients feel more at ease in order to provide the best patient experience from the beginning through recovery. Rhinoplasty and breast augmentation are two procedures in which patients may find it difficult to be descriptive about what they are seeking. It is best that patients are clear in expressing their desires so that Dr. O’Toole may provide a realistic recommendation.
