A recent US study done into how avoidance versus acceptance of negative emotions impacts our moods. The researchers used public speaking as the main pillar of the research - yet again, it pops up as a major stressor in peoples lives.
No surprise: as I started my latest public 5 week courses last week - Complete Presentation Skills - some participants told me that they'd rather resign or move annual leave dates than present to a large group. And I totally understand it!
