Rock your next presentation by letting euphoria take over
Are you high right now? I am.
But it isn’t because of what you think. No, not me, thank you.
I am high because I am just back from a run. I am still reeling from the endorphins that only running and live presentations can create for me.
As I enjoy the endorphins the 8 mile run has provided; I hope to pass along the positive energy to you as you read and absorb this post. Euphoria is real.
Euphoria defined by Wikipedia
Euphoria ( /juːˈfɔːriə/ (listen)) is the experience (or affect) of pleasure or excitement and intense feelings of well-being and happiness. Certain natural rewards and social activities, such as aerobic exercise, laughter, listening to or making music, and dancing, can induce a state of euphoria. Euphoria is also a symptom of certain neurological or neuropsychiatric disorders, such as mania. Romantic love and components of the human sexual response cycle are also associated with the induction of euphoria. Certain drugs, many of which are addictive, can cause euphoria, which at least partially motivates their recreational use.
Hedonic hotspots – i.e., the pleasure centers of the brain – are functionally linked. Activation of one hotspot results in the recruitment of the others. Inhibition of one hotspot results in the blunting of the effects of activating another hotspot.Therefore, the simultaneous activation of every hedonic hotspot within the reward system is believed to be necessary for generating the sensation of an intense euphoria.
Thank you Wikipedia for this detailed description. I thought about omitting the sentence relating to drugs but opted to leave it In because it is relevant. Just because I do not use recreational drugs doesn’t mean we should avoid that part of the definition.
Why Talk About Euphoria?
You can actually turn your presentation anxiety into positive energy which can be used to your benefit. As soon as you digress into your own mind and start to shell off the rest of the world with your own nerves; instead think about the journey of your audience. If you change your mindset from worrying about your own fear and anxiety to one of nurturing your audience and being responsible for their ecstatic journey, your hormones take a switch as well.
If you proactively choose to let euphoria take hold, you will ROCK your next presentation. If you would like further research please take a peek at the post Fear of Public Speaking from David Carbonell.
Thank you David! You and I both know that “Fear of Public Speaking” is very real but very real to overcome with the right coach.
