Take Deep Breaths
One way to calm the body down before a big presentation is to activate the parasympathetic nervous system. You can accomplish this simply by taking deep breaths. Best of all, it will only take 30 seconds of deep breathing to put you in a more relaxed state.
Staying in the same spot throughout the entire presentation can make you tense up. To ease this tension, feel free to move around. Some people find that moving around prevents them from becoming anxious again.
Lighten The Mood
If you have tried the two tactics above and are still feeling nervous, be honest about it! This can help lighten the mood of the call. The people you are talking to will appreciate your honesty.
