Ways to Reduce Physical Stress and Nervousness

Getting to the venue early so you don’t have to rush

Doing tech and sound rehearsal well before your start time

Walking around the stage so your body feels safe in the room

Sitting in the audience so you have a physical sense of what they will see

Eating early enough so you won’t be hungry, but not right before your talk

Talking to some people in the audience before you start (if it suits you), so it’s no longer made up of strangers (friends are less likely to try to eat you).
