I have a competition tomorrow (debating) and i'm a little nervous. Does anyone have any tips on how to calm nerves? What do you do before presentations?

That's a pretty interesting list. I'd be kind of scared if I was too upbeat during this presentation. Meditate, will do.

None of these would make you too upbeat. I don't even think they'd make you upbeat. Nitrous oxide is an anxiolytic, meaning it helps with anxiety. Before I had my bottom wisdom teeth removed, I was given some N2O and I became so calm that I didn't even care anymore about the procedure. Meditating is good is a good alternative, though.

Drink green tea or chamonile tea I recomend you to drink Chamomile is well-known for its abilities to reduce nausea and indigestion. It also soothes nerves and makes you calm. :3 hope you can win

I didn't consider tea o.o. I'll have to try that. The first day of competition is tomorrow and it'll last until sunday.

Listen to some music you find relaxing.
Have some tea.
Sit someplace comfy.

That's what I do.

How well are you prepared? As an actor, I've found my worst nerves stem from not knowing the material 100%. You can't do your best if you're not on top of everything. Practice until you feel comfortable, and know your audience will appreciate what you have to say.

I'm pretty well prepared, but i'm in charge of our team. I've spent a lot of time helping the team more than focusing on my own material. I think part of the pressure comes from not wanting to let down the people who are counting on me. I'm practicing as much as I can.
