Why do we shake when we are nervous?
Hello, every time I had to perform or give a presentation in front of the audience right before my presentation I start shaking. It even speeds up my heart rate, blood pressure, and breathing. Many people suffer from this. Please let me know the cause of shaking while feeling nervous?
@terrell Hello, it is normal to feel this way. When your body is subjected to stress, it goes into fight, flight, or freeze mode. Stress hormones flood your body and speed up your heart rate, blood pressure, and breathing. Your body prepares to deal with the stressor, interpreting the anxiousness as a signal that you’ll need to stand your ground or escape from danger. Your muscles become primed to act, leading to a trembling sensation, twitching, or shaking.
