Stage fright, or a fear of public speaking is the common term for Glosophobia.
The best thing you can do is practice and know the material. It's scary enough being on stage, make it easier for yourself and know what you're supposed to say. Practice it enough so that you have it memorized and don't need to look down at note cards. Take five, slow, deep breaths before going on stage. Just remind yourself that no one's judging you, they are interested in what you're saying, and if you mess up, it's likely that no one will even notice. Assure yourself that no matter what happens, everything will be okay.
Try looking just over the heads of the audience. You will appear to be looking at them. If you make a mistake, KEEP GOING. Act like it didn't happen and just continue. It is probable that no one even noticed, but if you make a big deal about it, the audience will remember that. If you get to the point where you're so scared that you think you're about to cry or something, just crack a joke to lighten it up. The best thing you can do to overcome stage fright or any other phobia is to practice doing it, as often as possible. Start out small, and perform in front of a small group of friends, and keep doing until you're comfortable doing it in front of larger crowds.
If you're acting in a play, don't tell the audience you're nervous.Some people will tell you to focus on "one person you know or trust" in the audience. You should not do this because first of all, you aren't always going to have that option, and second, it makes that person feel really uncomfortable.

It is one of the most basic needs.Oxygen plays a significant role in sustaining the natural immortality factor of the cell. It has a policing role that naturally oxidizes bacteria, fungi and viruses. Oxygen is also necessary to burn up toxins in the body that we generate internally and those that come from sources in our food (especially junk food), water and environment.
That is why many athletes and fitness enthusiasts uses portable canned oxygen for recreational.Oxygen is the most important nutrient to the cells in your body and plays an integral role in almost every bodily function.

Caring for combination skin needn't be a chore. Adopt a routine and follow it through.
A simple morning skincare routine should include a cleanser, toner and moisturizer. This is to be done first thing in the morning and doesn't require a great effort. If you have specific skin complaints e.g. blemishes you may add products to combat these as required. After this you may then put on your make up. In the evening before bed it is important you remove your make up before following a skincare routine. This will provide your skincare products with a clean face with which to work. Follow your skincare routine as before, again adding products as required. Repeat daily.
Select your skincare products carefully. Many are designed specifically for combination skin and it is worth reading reviews and trying samples before committing yourself. Sales assistants working at beauty counters in department stores can advise you which products will work best for your skin type, they can also confirm your skin type if you are in doubt. Once you have adopted a skincare routine, stick to it. Many products need time and may not work straight away. If you react to anything discontinue use immediately and seek advise. Certain brands design make up with a specific skin type in mind so take care to select products for your type.
Do not take advice from sales assistants alone, try products and read reviews.

So your kid, or your niece or nephew, or your friend's kid, needs to clean their room, and either they just sit in there and play or watch TV, or complain that they "don't know how"? Well, here's how to get them motivated.
Ask the child to identify the largest thing in the room which is out of place. They might not select the largest thing, but chances are they will go for something big. A stuffed animal, a truck, a dollhouse, something like that. Ask them where it goes. Tell them to move it there. If something's there, have them move the offending item toward the center of the room. Repeat Steps 1 and 2 until the room is clean.
This method works in mathematics. No matter how messy a room is, it starts out mostly clean. The furniture is where it's supposed to be, and that probably takes up 20-30% of floor space. After only a few of the biggest things are put away you will start to see improvements. (More importantly, the kid will too, and it will boost their self confidence.) This is also a game of speed, in a manner of speaking. Keep the flow going. After a toy is put away, immediately grab the next one.
If there are two or more kids, start off having them take turns. If they don't take turns well, they're likely competitive. Make it seem like a game, but at the end, when they want to know who "won", tell them they both won because their room is clean. If there are two or more kids and two or more rooms, do not separate them. Have both/all kids work on the messiest room first. When that room is clean, move onto the next. The reason is because the kids you're not supervising will come watch and will distract the kid you're working with. Besides, as long as they all get along relatively well, they'll work faster as a team than individually. Sacrifice speed for cooperation. If you have two kids who want to share in the effort of moving one toy, allow it. It's better to allow them to work together than to encourage them to compete or work separate, even if they get a little less done. They'll work faster together later.
Turn off their TV, radio, and/or stereo. Game systems should not be on, either. For best results, these should not be heard from another room, either; they will be a distraction. Only allow a light and fan or heater, as far as electronic devices. Bring in a box, and for every toy you don't see the child playing with on a regular basis, ask them how often they play with the toy. If they can't remember, explain that some children don't have toys and they could make another child happy. If they're willing to surrender the toy, put it in the box and take it to Goodwill or the Salvation Army. (Granted, they'll sell it, rather than give it away, but they'll sell it cheap and the money will go to a good cause.)
Also bring a bag, and if the item selected is trash, have the kid throw it out. Buy long and wide but low plastic containers (e.g. Rubbermaid) which will slide under the bed. Use these for small toys such as blocks and action figures or dolls. If your child does not want to neatly display their toys, they can round them up and throw them in this container. Stow it under the bed, out of sight. Ensure that toys are not left in the hamper or basket. (Bonus tip, put an air freshener stick-on under the lid or whatever - kids' dirty clothes can smell as bad as adults'!) Also to keep the pace up, have the kid throw dirty clothes on the floor at, rather than into, a hamper - they can be picked up and put in the hamper later when they're all in one place. Reward the kid or kids with at least a thank you when they're done. Everyone likes to feel their work is appreciated.
If your spouse or sibling or friend or other caretaker of the child realizes how effective you were in getting your/their child to clean their room, you might be asked to help more often. Never, ever actually help the child. They are clever and may take their time with one toy, and then ask you to put away the next-largest thing. Before long, they will be watching you do all the work.
