How do you tell someone that you have a cold?
Or that you are stressed?
Or maybe you have just started a new job?
Do you have the words to express your feelings?
Do they know?
Or do they simply have no idea what to say?
Here are some tips to help you communicate more effectively when it comes to your voice.
Listen to your body language It’s easy to get frustrated when you feel the need to express what you are feeling.
But, sometimes it can be easy to fall into the trap of feeling guilty when you do not have the tools to convey what you want to say.
Here are five simple ways to change your voice to express more about yourself.
Practice what you say Practice making your voice sound different when speaking to others.
For example, if you’re trying to be witty, you may want to use different words to describe your humour, or if you are expressing an emotion, try using different words for different emotions.
Use a different voice for each occasion Listen to what others are saying to you and choose what sounds more natural to you.
For instance, if someone is saying to me, “Don’t let the sun set on your face”, I might say something like “You look great, you look fantastic, but your face looks so tired”.
The words “your face” or “your” will also be more natural for you.
Listen for yourself If you are struggling to express yourself or want to learn more about the meaning of your words, consider listening to yourself.
When you are trying to express something you can hear yourself saying, and you want your voice, it is helpful to listen for yourself.
If you find yourself struggling to say something, try changing the way you say it.
If your words are getting stuck, try saying “no, I don’t want to hear you”.
Or, “I really don’t like hearing you, it’s just so rude”.
If you have trouble saying something in your own voice, you can try using the ‘talk back’ technique.
You might start by saying, “Yes, I think I am making myself sound like a moron.”
You might then say, “Listen, it feels really stupid.”
Try to change the way your voice sounds in a way that feels natural to your mouth and nose.
This will help you to feel more comfortable when you are speaking.
Practice your speech and reading comprehension You can practice your reading comprehension skills by using a book, a magazine or a magazine with words from your vocabulary or even just the word you use most often.
Use this practice to develop your listening skills and develop your reading skills, too.
For some people, this practice is not enough to get better at reading, and it may be helpful to read books or magazines that have more words than you use in their titles.
For other people, it may help to read more.
Here is a list of some of the best books that you can choose from: The New Yorker – How to Write with Your Tongue.
Read online or read an audiobook to practice reading comprehension.
