Ever considered where vocal sounds come from? It’s the muscles in and around the diaphragm pushing air out of the lungs, through the trachea, over the vocal chords and out through the mouth. We’ve become so skilled at using our voices that we can fashion sounds to come out exactly as we please. Funny then how, when we present, these sounds do not seem to come out quite as we intended.
Here’s your tip this week. One minute before going live, take just five deep breaths in through the nose and slowly out though the mouth. Your brain will be better powered, your diaphragm exercised and your nerves better settled.
