Whether it’s at school or work in Singapore, you’re always expected to make some kind of presentation one way or another. It could be a speech, a school presentation, a business presentation, and whatever else. One thing is for sure though; you will almost always be nervous before going in front. Even so, there are many ways to get rid of those jitters. Here are only some of them.

Be prepared for the presentation

Probably the most obvious thing to do is to be well-prepared for the presentation. Of course, you wouldn’t want to make a speech without really having an idea about what you want to say. But aside from having a fully informative and organized presentation, being prepared can also help you get rid of your nerves. This is simply because it’s easier for you to be more confident if you’re already well-prepared. No matter what gets thrown at you, you don’t need to worry since you already know what you’re talking about.

Sharpen your own skills

Another way you can get rid of your nerves is simply to present in public regularly. Practice with your friends, take opportunities to stand up on a stage, just try to expose yourself to that experience as much as you can. You will slowly but surely get used to being in front of a lot of people. Eventually, making presentations will feel like a walk in the park for you. Because you’re already used to it, you already know what to do to avoid mistakes, you’ll know how to keep your audience engaged, and etc.

Learn from others

Aside from doing all the presenting you do yourself, you should also take time to sit down and listen to others speak as well. This can be a good way to start if you’re still hesitant about doing all the speaking mentioned in the point above. Listen and observe how others make their presentations or speeches. This doesn’t sound like much help but there are always things you can pick up. For example, you can get a better feel for how the audience generally responds.

Be excited about the presentation

While preparing, it would be best to frame a mindset that you’re excited to do your presentation. In essence, you’re turning your nervousness into excitement hence you’re hoping for a good result. When you stay in a positive mood and expect a good outcome, it’s also very likely that things will go that way. Just the same, when you think too much about messing up in the middle of the presentation, it might also happen. Bottom line is, just think positively and don’t worry too much!

  • Whether it’s a friend, classmate, co-worker, or even a relative, there will always be people who we simply don’t like. Maybe it’s because of their guts, or maybe they’re just plain annoying. Even so, if there’s not much of an issue between you two and you just want to maintain a healthy environment, there are tons of ways to do so. Here are only some of them.

    Just don’t show it

    Of course, there are varying levels to this. There’s a difference between not liking someone and actually hating them with a passion. If you’re still at a level where you just think of the person as annoying, then don’t think too much about it and just don’t show the other person that you don’t like them. Chances are, this person doesn’t really know that you don’t like him too. This is simply the best and easiest way to avoid tension and conflict.

    Stay calm and collected

    On the other hand, if the tension gets really high and you’ve already shown signs of hostility towards each other, it will be best to remain calm during a confrontation. But then again, this is easier said than done, especially if you really hate this person. Staying calm, though, will still be ideal in heated scenarios. For one, you can deliver your feelings and thoughts better. If you speak too emotionally, you won’t convey the message as effectively. You can also prevent the conflict from becoming an all-out fight.

    Keep in mind that you’re both different

    When you start to dislike someone, try to remember that they act the way they do because you are both different people. You won’t always share the same interests. There are some things he/she likes that you don’t. When you remember this, it’ll be easier for you to avoid thinking of someone in a bad light. But then again, you can’t really like someone instantly because of that. So, just think the way you want to but keep it to yourself.

    Don’t take the bait

    For the most part, the people we hate are those who try to pick on us or bully us. Whether it’s at school or at work, there’s always going to be that one person who does that. If you encounter a person who keeps belittling you, control your emotions and don’t be aggressive. Showing your anger will only make them feel more powerful. What you can do instead is to ask probing questions like what their problem is with you in particular. This will turn the spotlight on them shows them if they want you to treat them with respect, they should earn it.

  • You might have grown up hearing that you should drink about 8 glasses of water a day. But how important is it really? In Singapore, the water is clean enough that you could drink tap water without worry. That means you can drink water freely all day. So should you do it? Here, then, are some of the important benefits of drinking enough water daily.

    1. The brain needs water

    Brain function is strongly affected by our hydration. This is simply because just like every organ in the body, our brain needs water to function well. Mild dehydration, for example, has actually been found to impair memory and brain performance. If we are dehydrated for a longer time, it can be severely detrimental to our thinking and reasoning.

    2. Our bodily fluids depend on it

    Digestion, circulation, distribution of nutrients, and all other bodily processes need water to function effectively. That is because all of these rely on our body fluids to do their work effectively. Also, it’s not just our internal organs that need water, even our skin and our eyes benefit from being hydrated. This is also why our brain tells us we are thirsty. To let us know that the body is running out of water.

    3. Improve physical performance

    Staying hydrated can clearly improve physical performance. Why do you think you get thirsty even if you do just jog for a while? When we lose too much water through sweat during physical activities, our muscle tissues get deprived of oxygen and end up losing energy. Hence, physical performance becomes limited. So, always remember to drink enough water before, during, and after exercise or any physical activity.

    4. Water cleanses the body

    In the present day, much of the food we consume is high in sodium. The recommended daily intake is only 1500mg-2300mg but on average, we ingest 3400 mg. This is mainly because of fast food and processed food like hotdogs and ham. When we consume too much sodium, our body won’t be able to flush everything out and they become toxins that are harmful to the body. In this case, water is important because it improves circulation and helps flush out all these excess toxins. Drinking enough helps cleanse the body thoroughly.

    5. It can help with weight loss

    Simply put, you should drink a lot of water before every meal to help reduce your food intake if you want to lose weight. Many people, when they hit the gym trying to lose weight, drink sports drinks instead of water. Because sports drinks are relatively high in sugar, it can limit your weight loss efforts in some ways. The logic behind water helping with weight loss is also simple and really obvious. As mentioned above, by drinking water, you won’t be hungry often so you’ll reduce your food intake.

    Tips for Growing Orchids

    Orchids have different care requirements that you should observe, that is why if it’s your first time to grow orchids, you should stick to one or two types first to learn the basics.

    1. Do not use mixes or potting soils that are sold for other plants. Instead, choose potting mixes made specifically for orchids in flower shops in Singapore.
    2. A potting mix for orchids may contain any of the following: perlite, bark, vermiculite, moss, and others, to imitate their natural habitat in the wild, such as trees and rocks.
    3. Before purchasing an orchid, examine its roots, stems, and leaves for signs of diseases, insects, and rot.
    4. Make sure that the stems are strong, leathery and not brown or dark green in color.
    5. Place your orchids where they can get sunlight either during the early hours of the morning or the afternoon. Never place them in areas where they are hit directly by sunlight.
    6. If you choose to keep them indoors in your apartment, you can substitute sunlight with fluorescent lights.
    7. Do not overwater your orchids and make sure that the soil has proper drainage.
    8. Orchids are given water-soluble fertilizers only once a month or as needed.
