Are you a busy Mom and a Corporate manager?
Need a quick tip to relax your voice?
If you are stressed because of a hard day at the office, or the crazy traffic, or the frustration at getting everyone out of the house each morning; this stress will show up when you speak. If you are too tired because you stayed up late the night before, for whatever reason, this tension will reveal itself when you open your mouth to speak.
When your body and mind are worried or tense, your muscles tighten. This creates a direct link to your vocal muscles and your airwaves. The result is that your pitch level rises and your voice sounds raspy and nervous, or even tired. The bottom line is: when your muscles tighten your voice sounds tense. You certainly do not need this, especially before meeting a client or doing a group presentation!
