Relax! And Look Trustworthy & Confident In Your Videos

Speak more clearly and confidently on camera by getting your head in the game. Literally.

You'll have much easier time speaking on camera - or with any type of public speaking - by relaxing first.

Easier said than done? Or working within physical limitations? No problem. You don't have to turn to meditation, yoga, long walks in the woods, or an adult beverage to help you relax. A few quick and easy warm-up exercises for your head can go a long way in helping you rid yourself of tension or stiffness BEFORE you go on camera.

This video will start with some basic relaxation techniques for your head, focus on facial massage and pressure points, and help you loosen any tightness you carry in your mouth or jaw. Simple enough to do in your chair

The result? You will become more relaxed - and more engaging - when the camera begins to roll. And your viewers will pick up on your positive, easy energy and be that much more receptive to you and your message.

People will be looking at our faces for clues as to whether they can and should trust us. Any nervousness we feel about being on camera will most likely be on display, front and center.

Laura's Quick Tips

  1. When you're relaxed, you can more easily project your unique personality.

  2. Feeling sore or tense anywhere in particular? That's where you need to work on relaxing those muscles first.

  3. Viewers will be looking at your face - and especially your eyes! - for cues as to whether they can trust you and what you're saying.

Muscle tightness is a sign of fear or nervousness, which rarely translates well on camera. What does the viewer perceive? An uncomfortable spokesperson or interviewee, and they're less likely to trust the individual AND the product or service. That's why most spokespeople smile and seem very easy-going. Their friendliness welcomes the viewer and shows confidence and expertise about whatever they're saying. And guess what? It works.
