Anxiety uses the same chemicals as excitement. Remember, your feeling are not reality. You can fool yourself into imagining yourself as excited. You CAN make manipulate yourself own reaction. Don’t try to suppress those chemicals. It will distract and exhaust you. Instead, use them give energy to your voice. Animation to you face and body. Even if people can’t see you, it does come through. That knot in your throat? A laugh. The tremor in your hands? Excitement. The catch in your voice? Hurry do get what you need to share out to your audience.

It may sound cheesy but I like using a mantra for a few minutes before a call. It helps me warm up my voice so I don’t sound as nervous - and I try to use words that are positive for both me and the client (“We are both humans, we are both hoping for a positive outcome and an enjoyable experience”).

Trying to cook more during this. I have been looking into an instapot but there are so many different versions. If anyone has recommendations, please share. I would like one that isn’t hard to use (because I’ve never used one) and has a lot of recipes.
