-It would be too easy for your vocal chords to tear apart of you are going to talk above loud backgrounds. If what you would say is not as important then might as well wait for the noise to be silenced then talks.
-If you are the type of a person who screams and shouts when you are angry, then you have to consider undergoing counseling or therapy. It is not healthy to convert you anger into screams.
-Spicy foods can cause laryngeal irritation. I would make you feel uncomfortable and it is kind of painful in the throat.
-We all know that this would damage the entire health of a person but smoking and drinking would further affect how the voice responds. The voice would be irritated and damaged once a person does not stop these vices.

People would agree that they find public speaking a bit hard because they cannot keep themselves confident while doing it. The key to public speaking is confidence and trust on the message that you want to convey. Practice is the most important part. It doesn't matter if you are doing public speaking in Oklahoma City, garage door repair in Tulsa, or playing the piano at home, you must practice practice practice. Here are some of the tips you have to know when you are in a public speaking:
  1. ANXIOUSNESS IS NORMAL BUT YOU JUST NEED TO PRACTICE MORE AND WORRY LESS -It is normal that you feel anxiety and nervousness. The only way to conquer them is to make yourself be prepared of your speech. And if you are prepared, then you would be able to tell yourself that you can make it and you don’t have to worry so much.

  2. STUDY YOUR AUDIENCE -Before you begin your public speaking, make sure that you really know who the people are listening to you. Finding out what it is that should make them listen will help you preserve their attention.

  3. WATCH FOR THE FEEDBACK AND ADAPT YOURSELF -You can sometimes base your performance to the physical reactions of the audience. You can gauge their actions and from there, you can tell if you did good or not so much.

  4. USE STORIES TO TELL HUMOR AND EFFECTIVE LANGUAGE -Make your speech as relatable as possible. Use a perfect language that would fit the message that you want to convey. You can consider a language effective if it simplifies the message that you want to send. You are effectively using the language you chose if it helps the audience understand the piece with clarity.

  5. DO NON-VERBAL GESTURES EFFECTIVELY -Do not move your hands and change your voice without any reason. This will confuse a lot of your readers. The best thing to do is to make sure that you are maintaining eye contact with them and keep on focusing with the message you want to deliver. You don’t have to move your hands regularly especially if there is no reason to do that at all.

  6. MAKE AN ATTENTION-GRABBER BEGINNING AND A STUNNING ENDING -Aim for your people to give you their attention on the first sentence of your speech. You have to get their attention by this time or deem your speech as ineffective already. Make your lead static and alive to get the attention of most people. Then leave a stunning remark as an ending. Your ending should make the audience feel that they are really involved in your topic and that they have to say their piece before it’s too late.

I spent more than I intended because, duh, stationary supplies, but ended up with a bunch of super cute planner supplies and a pretty sweet planner. I apologize in advance for blowing your allowance.
