Dr. Gregory Brammer - Getting Past Public Speaking Anxiety

Though he is now an experienced public speaker with hundreds of hours of presentations and speeches under his belt, Dr. Gregory Brammer still remembers how nerve-racking it was to face up to the idea of speaking in front of others for the first time. Many people struggle with anxiety when speaking in public, so try to keep the following in mind to ensure you stay calm and collected when presenting.
If you don’t spend time rehearsing your speech, it is only natural that you are going to feel less than confident when you are called upon to present it to others. Start work early and make sure that your speech has a defined structure for you to follow. Practice delivering it to others, or even in front of the mirror, so that you can make changes to clunky sections and develop a greater understanding of your subject matter.

Be Early
Wake up with plenty of time to get yourself prepared before your speech. Get the clothes you will wear ready the night before, get plenty of rest and enjoy a good breakfast before you make it to the venue. Try to turn up early so that you can get comfortable in your surroundings.

It’s Okay to be Nervous
Dr. Gregory Brammer points out that many of the people in your audience will expect you to be nervous, especially if you are new to public speaking. Don’t feel bad about your nerves, as this causes you to focus more intently on them, leading to frustration that often results in mistakes being made.

Dr. Gregory Brammer - Advice For Novice Campers

When he is not busy with his work at BrammerMD, Dr. Gregory Brammer enjoys spending time in the great outdoors. He regularly goes camping, often as part of longer hiking expeditions, and he feels at home when he is surrounded by nature. If you are interested in camping but have never done it before, consider these tips to make sure you get the most out of the experience.

Dr Gregory Brammer Buy A Good Tent

While there are tons of cheap tents available, it is a good idea to actually invest in something that will be able to withstand the elements for prolonged periods of time, especially if you envision camping becoming a regular activity. Nobody wants to end up exposed to bad weather for an entire night because they have purchased a tent that was not fit for purpose.

Always Take A Torch

When you are out in the middle of nowhere you can’t rely on the lights that you would find in the city to illuminate the night for you. This is why it is crucial that you bring a light source with you so that you can find your way around in the dark. Invest in a good torch and make sure that you have fresh batteries and a spare bulb or two so that you don’t find yourself in a situation without light.

Clear Up

Dr. Gregory Brammer is always quick to clear up any mess he makes while camping. In doing so you will preserve the natural environment and ensure that more people get to enjoy camping once your own adventure is concluded.

Get Good Boots

Comfort and durability are both traits that you should be looking for in your hiking boots and it is rare to find either in cheaper pairs. Do a little bit of research and invest in a good pair of boots. Your feet will thank you for it later when you start taking on more challenging terrain. You should also make sure you wear the boots in before you go walking.

Start Small

While it may be tempting to take on the most challenging trails in your local area straight away, doing so without experience presents a range of hazards that you would be wise to avoid. Start small with some simple trails so that you can develop the hiking experience you need to tackle harder routes.

Stay Hydrated
Dr. Gregory Brammer enjoys taking long hikes, but this means that he needs to ensure his body doesn’t succumb to dehydration or fatigue. Make sure that you take adequate supplies with you so that you always have water when you need it and can refuel your body to stave off the effects of fatigue.
