OVIDEO #11: Nuggets to Lessen the Fear of Public Speaking

Cotton Mouth!

This Video is the eleventh of Nineteen about Lessening The Fear of Public Speaking!

Video Transcript

Fred Miller, “NO SWEAT Public Speaking!”

Here’s another one off my Nuggets to Lessen the Fear of Public Speaking.

Cotton Mouth! Throat dry! Very hard to talk when you have Cotton Mouth!

It happens for a number of reasons:

  1. Nerves! That can certainly do it!

  2. Sometime just Dry Air. That will dry you out.

  3. Other times – antihistamines. If you can wait till other times to take those – do it!

Now here’s a couple tips to lessen that Dry Mouth.

  1. Water! I always bring my own water.

  2. Bring it in a bottle. It’s less likely to spill on something, and room temperature!

  3. Cold water – Hot water – NOT good for the vocal chords.

  4. Lozenges!

  5. Now you have to practice with this. Put one between your cheek and your gum. See how quickly it’s going to dissolve. See what size piece to use.

  6. NOT red! It will look like – you’re bleeding!

This stuff works!

Till next time, Fred Miller – NO SWEAT!
