Although all three anxiety reduction techniques sound very useful, visualization appeared to me as the most helpful. This technique requires something that the other two don't put the main focus on and that's having to use your five senses to create a vivid image in your head of the situation. When I read this it completely biased me into picking visualization because I realized that I could use this technique not only in speeches or public speaking, but also in sports. If I visualize shooting the basketball and making a basket over and over again, it will calm me when I am actually playing and will make me less nervous about shooting the basketball, which results in more confidence of making the shot. In my speeches it will help me relax and make myself use to unknowing situations. I will also visualize accomplishment which results in having confidence. Another reason that I picked visualization is because it is proven that it will reduce the feelings of anxiety and increase the comfort level. Anxiety is an attribute that I always believed was a harm to my speeches. As I read the chapter, I learned that too much anxiety is not good, but that's why the visualization method can help. Visualizing yourself giving a speech to many others makes it feels like you are actually in the moment and the next time you give a speech you will feel more comfortable since you have already been in that situation. Being comfortable to me is being successful, and that's because when I have the feeling of trust and non

In my ninth grade year I thought that everything would be a breeze. I was completely lost the first three weeks of school. When I saw how much freedom I had being in high school, I was too excited. It was so much to be in and be a part of. I immediately wanted to join things, but I knew that I had to stay focus. High school is so easy to get off track, that if you don’t pay attention to what you are doing, and stays organize, you will fall in a whole.…

Diversity in Society
In “The Pedagogy of the Oppressed” by Paulo Freire, Freire focuses on the causes of oppression, why it is difficult to stop it, and what one can do to help prevent it. Oppression takes away the humanity from those being oppressed and also those who oppress –it is the biggest problem of humanity.…
The two defining wars of the decade have been the ‘War on Terror’ in Afghanistan and ‘Operation Iraqi Freedom.’ The main beginning of both of these wars would be 9/11. The attack on America including the both World Trade Centers in New York, as well as the Pentagon in Washington, and the lost plane over Pennsylvania, was the worst American disaster in history. The attacks killed over 3,000 innocent Americans. On September 18, 2001 President George W. Bush asked congress to declare war on those who…

Design Tactics in Robert Frost’s Design
Robert Frost’s Design, is an intricate poem taking the reader on a journey of questioning whether the random occurrences in the world are mere coincidences, or alternatively, occurrences that are designed to happen or controlled with a purpose. This question is further complicated by the ideas of lightness versus darkness and good versus evil, and how something such…
Health Care reform in the United States is part of an ongoing debate for years and of most recent substantial legislation. Even the Presidential Elections between Obama and Romney was a big issue on the debate platforms. I will discuss some of the key issues at hand are: In what ways have recent health care reform measures expanded or inhibited access to care? How might the changes to access influence utilization? Understanding the concept of what universal health care is and how the current care…
Up until recently, interracial marriage was not a widely discussed or contested subject because of its link to the history of racism and sexism. Even today, for example, many families who follow their ancestor’s footsteps on the topic of tradition forbid their children to be married off into a random family. Similarly, in the seventeenth century colonial America, there were many strict laws that were enforced to punish blacks, women, slaves, servants, and other classes of people who engaged in…
