This way, you’ll not only have a better feel for the script, but you’ll be more comfortable in reading it, which ultimately makes for a smoother read. Also, you get familiar with the words and won’t have to stress over pronouncing a particular word, you have read it, you are in touch with the words so you have an idea of things you are going to say in the studio not just a wishy-washy kind of idea, your clients are even going to trust you more because you take your time in delivering good work with no flaws.


  1. Take Deep Breaths: We most of the time overlook the importance of taking a deep breath. A deep breath, brings you to life, it energizes you and keeps you in control. It renews your strength and puts you back on track immediately. If taking a breathe doesn’t work for you, stand up, move a bit around the studio, stretch your hands, say a few words to people around to put you back on track.
