You are careful about how you dress, your hairstyle, the number of white hairs that pop up, any wrinkles or pimples that always pop up when they don't have to and where they don't need to show up, but little is asked. how to improve your voice. Still, it would help us feel more confident. Seeing is believing. The voice has a power that not everyone knows but that we all “suffer” without realizing it. On the one hand it has, or can have, a musicality that enchants and puts our interlocutor at ease, it can vary his response, he can make a first nice impression (or not), it can lower the tone of an argument or even raise it.
The voice affects the thinking of those who listen to us, and this is quite obvious, what we want to insist on in this article is the fact that the voice can also change the opinion we have of ourselves. Of course, he cannot completely change it but help, yes, to have greater security when we relate to others, whether in a tete à tete or in a meeting or group outing. Try to think about it and, as you do, keep reading our tips.
How to improve your voice and feel more confident
Let's start with a fact. The voice accompanies us wherever we go and we can't change it like a hairstyle. In some circumstances he even represents us 100%, during any phone call, even at work, in a telephone meeting. It is important to have it, and let's not take it for granted because there are those who have to learn to get by without it, and it is also important to to represent and support us on every occasion of our life. It is an output but not totally disconnected from what we are and what we think, so working on the voice means digging even a little into ourselves, maybe changing some of our habits and becoming aware of our fears and our strengths.
Very often we are not the first to know all the potential of our voice, we use far fewer tones and intonations than we are able to get out of our mouth and so we limit ourselves. It would be like not being able to gesticulate, which on average as Italians we do a lot, or like for a painter to be able to use half of the existing colors.
At any age and whatever our current occupation, with some exercise we can improve our voice and also change our relational and working life. We remain us, we simply learn to express it with greater authenticity.
How to improve your voice: breathing exercises
Before we think about the sounds we make, let's learn to breathe properly with these exercises.
- We use the diaphragm as we did as babies. As adults we only use the upper part of the lungs but we begin to notice and inflate the belly every time and not just the chest. Of course we can't spend our day like this but we dedicate 3 minutes to diaphragm breathing. Day after day it will seem more ours.
- Watch your posture. To breathe better and make more natural sounds, the position is very important. Let's go barefoot with a book on our head and try to walk without dropping it. It is not an exercise to learn how to walk the catwalk, but to learn to stand up straight.
- We don't stop yawning. They are an excellent opportunity to try to emit sounds that are unusual for us
Hum every day. The technical term would be to vocalize, emitting sounds of various kinds, exploring as many tones as possible. It only takes a few minutes a day, in the shower or elsewhere.
How to improve your voice and communicate better
With these exercises we have certainly improved our ability to produce sounds and to dominate them. We try to use these potentials in a useful and concrete way when we relate to others. In particular, there are some situations, I don't know if this has ever happened to you, in which you have theimpression of not being heard or that our voice is submerged by the others. Instead of getting angry, let's try to propose ourselves in another way, with a different register.
There nasal or throat voice, they are often less heard than that coming from the chest. Timbre is also important, we try not to be monotonous but to have rhythm and insert variations of tone, of volume. We are not asked to sing, of course, but to help us with the voice, for example, to highlight the essential passages of our speech.
Only by experiencing all this can you continue your growth by going to refine the technique. It is very important to be aware of the different reactions that our voice arouses from time to time and from there to start to face other improvement steps. There is no voice that is not very harmonious, too shrill or croaking, that cannot be corrected and softened.
However, let us remember that a certain characteristic of the voice is always closely linked to what we are feeling inside, whether we admit it or not. It would therefore also be appropriate to ask ourselves what we would like to "throw out" in words and we do not allow ourselves to do so. A sweet affirmation made with a hard voice causes terrible dystonia, better to be consistent and let our voice, within the limits of education, tell what we are feeling.
