Ever laughed out loud or found it hard to contain yourself when you were on the air?
Jeremy Jacobs, a presenter, corporate host and radio broadcaster in the United Kingdom, posted 4 great tips for how to crack down on laughter for broadcast radio professionals that are sure to get you out of jeopardizing binds.
Whether you are on the radio, in front of the camera, speaking in public or simply find yourself about to laugh at an inappropriate time, these tips will do wonders to help you stop laughing or prevent embarrassing laughter altogether.
It's hard to maintain composure when you are unexpectedly struck by a fit of the giggles.
Jeremy Jacobs proposes these four ideas that will help muffle inappropriate laughter as well as potentially save your job!
1. Focus on the task in hand.
2. Bite your lip or the inside of your mouth. The minor pain takes your mind off other matters.
3. If you™re able to, think of something else. Pink elephants are my favourite.
4. Take deep breaths.
