How to improve communication skills?

There is some tips for those who are not comfortable with speaking as these days we can see a lot children always glued to their television and PSP's, mobiles that they are not able to say what is in their minds, not able to express their feelings. Saying it out in words requires the mind to open to thoughts that flow and might require time and practice.

Tips for speaking arts

a) The first and foremost is to bolster out "nervousness". Nervousness arises when our mind envisages about 'fear of losing or failure'. Its when our body responds with this adrenaline rush bringing our heart beat increase, body sweat and our breath rate to be fast and shallow. The only way is to bring to control this fear by bringing your mind to focus on the fact that the audience is there to learn and not criticize.

Take deep breaths and let out slowly to calm your mind before speaking. This will ease the adrenaline rush. Think that you are talking to one person face to face even though there maybe more than 100. Don't focus on yourself instead think about the audience needs.

b) Think positively: Erase negative thoughts like" I will not be able to do this good". Instead visualize yourself giving a successful speech and speaking with more confidence. Use affirmations and positive thoughts to raise your confidence. Imagine yourself to give a good speech and people giving a 'thumps up' to the impact it has given them.

c) Practicing : The person must be made to speak out. The sentences can be in sequence or non-sequence but only when you practice in front of people whom you may have already been familiar with like your colleagues or classmates or parents. They can help to correct the mistakes or help you to re-organise your statements.
