Lately I have been assigned to speak in public which is not my forte. Even though it's just reading the text and it's only about 15 minutes, it's a bit but I'm always shaking which makes me sweat. I don't really like it when other people focus their eyes on me, it makes me uncomfortable.

Just look a bit above their eyes. It's like you're looking at them, but you're actually looking almost above their heads. Less eye contact, less nervous.

I understand you are nervous, when they see you then stay calm.

I get rid of my stage fright by looking at the audience and focusing on them and forgetting that they are all looking at me

Everyone has a different way of dealing with stage fright. I'll give it a try, thanks for the advice

You can do it. Focus on something else, and try not to think about people watching you. If you need to, pratice with a mirrior.

@Emasburinong This used to happened with me everytime.but later I was elected as school head and have to daily be present on stage . I never watched anyone,the expressions of people use to make me feel more terrible. So I use to watch at a particular point and saw noone. Later when I overcame the Fear I could easily make eye contact with the audience.
