This 5 minute Trick from the Navy Seals Will Make You an Incredible Presenter

I’ve just learned that my relaxation techniques are also used by Navy SEALs to remain calm & focused. We need to stay calm & focused in most areas of our lives. It’s becoming increasingly difficult to do. We need to present our ideas in meetings, give presentations, go on virtual first dates, deliver bad news, or say “no” to people. We need to be an incredible presenter in all milieus of our lives.
My clients come to me to become incredible communicators. And the basis, the absolute foundation for being a highly effective and convincing communicator is to be completely relaxed.

I have clients who call my relaxation techniques: “Instant Xanex,” and “hours of yoga.” (The steps take only 5 minutes.)

What Crimes are Getting You Interrupted, Micromanaged, and Ignored?

How to Become an Incredible Presenter

First, to be relaxed, you must have a complete awareness of your musculature and any tension that is within. During normal life, that’s challenging. But during these unprecedented times, being completely relaxed seems impossible. Stress enters the body and takes up residence in the form of muscular tension. It’s our job to evict that tension-squatter because if we leave it there, it will continue to build up and wreak havoc on your performance in all areas. You may not be on a SEAL mission, but giving a presentation or delivering bad news can be ultra stressful.

Secondly, you’ll need to eliminate that tension. I teach it to you in a way that it becomes a habit.

Thirdly, you’ll need to use abdominal breathing. Here’s how the Navy Seals do it. It’s very much like my techniques, but I also teach you how to speak with that abdominal breathing, have an incredible voice, and remain cool calm and collected for extended periods.

The Navy SEAL technique is called “Box Breathing.”

Here’s how you do it:

  1. Find a comfortable seat or lie down on your back.
  2. Breathe in for 4 seconds.
  3. Hold your breath for 4 more seconds while keeping your lungs open.
  4. Then breathe out for 4 seconds.
  5. Hold your lungs empty for 4 seconds.

Navy SEALS do this for about 5 minutes, and it keeps them calm & focused in their high-pressure situations.

We have to be Incredible Presenters in All Areas of Our Lives

Whenever there is stress, our bodies go into fight or flight. We have fight or flight to thank for humans’ success. At first, the threats were only physical. Being confronted by another tribe or encountering an unknown person while alone picking berries. The prefrontal cortex shuts down and you have two choices. To run or to fight.

Today our bodies react to emotional stress in the same way. When we’re put on the spot, or accused of making a mistake at work or even when introducing yourself to others, our bodies have the same response. These are real No wonder Navy SEALs are doing these relaxing breathing techniques! If we face a challenging situation at work and lose our reaction time we could lose the deal. But they could lose their lives!

  1. Sometimes I have trouble sleeping, I feel anxious, so I tried this last night and it totally made me feel relaxed. Not sure if I’m going to start public speaking, but thanks for helping me sleep.

  2. Having Generalized Anxiety Disorder has pushed me to learn breathing techniques throughout the years. I’m very intrigued after reading about box breathing. I tested out this technique for a few minutes and instantly felt calmer and clear headed.

  3. I just sat here and tried that–it totally relaxed me! I’ll be doing that next time I meet with my CEO. He freaks me out because he always tells me to get to the point, which causes me to blather on even more!
