Make your point in 5 minutes


Less time doesn't mean less impact. Here are tips to make your presentation short and sweet yet strong and effective.

You have been preparing for a big presentation. Suddenly you are asked if you can get your message across within five minutes as plans have changed.
Don't panic. For today's television generation, sound bites can be more powerful than lengthy dissertations.
Here's how you can compress your speech without losing impact:

  • Do not apologise or mention that you usually have much more time. Be confident that you can communicate in five minutes.
  • Begin fast. Start with an attention-getting statement such as, "Your job won't exist five years from now," or "In the next five minutes, I want to convince you the best action you can take is..."
  • Use a strongly visual story. Illustrate your points - how it is now, how it will or could be - with a story so vivid that the audience can "see" it.
  • Divide your five minutes into three parts. Present a problem, a payoff, and your point of view: "The No. 1 piece of advice I can give you today is..." Your story illustrates your idea, and your walk-away line could be what will happen if they do what you suggest.
Positive thinking
Now that your presentation is prepared, take some time to relax before your talk - even if you are going to be on stage for just five minutes.
You have probably heard that the fear of death is second only to the fear of public speaking.
That may be true, but if you are looking for one of the cheapest and most effective methods of promoting your service or product, concentrate on the positive results of doing a presentation.
Think of the contacts and prospective clients you will be generating with just a few minutes in front of an audience.

Physical preparation
If accentuating the positive is not enough to keep the butterflies in your stomach in line, take time to work through the following exercises before you step up to the podium.
They help you to channel all that nervousness into energy.
  1. If you are wearing high heels, take them off. Now, stand on one leg and shake the other. When you put your foot back on the ground, it is going to feel lighter than the other one. Now, switch legs and shake. You want your energy to go through the floor and out of your head. This may sound quite cosmic but it is a practical technique used by actors.
  2. Shake your Hold them above your head, bending at the wrist and elbow and then bring your hands back down. This will make your hand movements more natural.
  3. Warm up your face muscles by chewing in a highly exaggerated way. Do shoulder and neck rolls. Imagine you are at eye level with a clock. As you look at "12", pull as much of your face up to "12" as you can. Next, move it to "3", then down to "6" and finally over to "9".
These exercises help you to warm up and relax. The exaggerated movements make it easier for your movements to flow more naturally.
Now, concentrate on the people you will be impressing with your short talk.
Go on, step up on the podium and profit from the experience.

1. No Breakfast
People who do not take breakfast are going to have a lower blood sugar level.
This leads to an insufficient supply of nutrients to the brain causing brain degeneration.

2. Overeating

It causes hardening of the brain arteries, leading to a decrease in mental power.

3. Smoking

It causes multiple brain shrinkage and may lead to Alzheimer disease.

4. High Sugar consumption

Too much sugar will interrupt the absorption of proteins and nutrients causingmalnutrition and may interfere with brain development.

5. Air Pollution

The brain is the largest oxygen consumer in our body. Inhaling polluted air decreases the supply of oxygen to the brain, bringing about a decrease in brain efficiency.

6. Sleep Deprivation

Sleep allows our brain to rest. Long term deprivation from sleep will accelerate the death of brain cells.

7. Head covered while sleeping

Sleeping with the head covered, increases the concentration of carbon dioxide and decrease concentration of oxygen that may lead to brain damaging effects.

8. Working your brain during illness

Working hard or studying with sickness may lead to a decrease in effectiveness of the brain as well as damage the brain.

9. Lacking in stimulating thoughts

Thinking is the best way to train our brain, lacking in brain stimulation thoughts may cause brain shrinkage.

10. Talking Rarely

Intellectual conversations will promote the efficiency of the brain

The main causes of liver damage are:

Sleeping too late and waking up too late are main cause.
Not urinating in the morning.
Too much eating.
Skipping breakfast.
5. Consuming too much medication.
Consuming too much preservatives, additives, food coloring , and artificial sweetener.
7. Consuming unhealthy cooking oil. As much as possible
reduce cooking oil use when frying, which includes even the best cooking oils like olive oil. Do not consume fried foods when you are tired, except if the body is very fit.
Consuming raw (overly done) foods also add to the burden of liver.
Veggies should be eaten raw or cooked 3-5 parts. Fried veggies should be finished in one sitting, do not store.

We should prevent this without necessarily spending more. We just have to adopt a good daily lifestyle and eating habits. Maintaining good eating habits and time condition are very important for our bodies to absorb and get rid of unnecessary chemicals according to "schedule."

Because :

Evening at 9 - 11
PM : is the time for eliminating unnecessary/toxic chemicals (detoxification) from the antibody system (lymph nodes). This time duration should be spent by relaxing or listening to music. If during this time a housewife is still in an unrelaxed state such as washing the dishes or monitoring children doing their homework, this will have a negative impact on health.

Evening at 11pm - 1 am :
is the detoxification process in the liver, and ideally should be done in a deep sleep state.

Early morning 1 - 3 am :
detoxification process in the gall, also ideally done in a deep sleep state.
Early morning 3 - 5 am :
detoxification in the lungs. Therefore there will sometimes be a severe cough for cough sufferers during this time. Since the detoxification process had reached the respiratory tract, there is no need to take cough medicine so as not to interfere with toxin removal process.
Morning 5 - 7am :
detoxification in the colon, you should empty your bowel.

Morning 7 - 9 am :
absorption of nutrients in the small intestine, you should be having breakfast at this time.Breakfast should be earlier, before 6:30 am , for those who are sick. Breakfast before 7:30 am is very beneficial to those wanting to stay fit. Those who always skip breakfast, they should change their habits, and it is still better to eat breakfast late until 9 - 10 am rather than no meal at all.

Sleeping so late and waking up too late will disrupt the process of removing unnecessary chemicals. Aside from that, midnight to
4:00 am is the time when the bone marrow produces blood. Therefore, have a good sleep and don't sleep late.
