I am a voice coach and I have seen it all. Literally, I’ve heard every excuse for someone’s screaming voice under the sun. There are many things that can contribute to this problem but there is one common denominator: lack of awareness about what they are doing to their voice when they scream (or talk loudly).
In this blog post, we will discuss 10 ways you can raise your voice without having to yell or scream which will not only improve your vocal quality but also make you more confident in the way that you speak!
Reason: It’s important to have a reason at the top of your blog post. What are you writing about? Why does it matter for people who read this blog or visit your website?
In summary, screaming is not necessary! There are many things that can contribute to someone’s vocal quality getting worse and one of them is yelling or screaming when they don’t need too. Voice coaches like myself often hear excuses from clients such as “I’m just passionate,” but my favorite excuse has always been “I didn’t know I was doing anything.” That’s why voice lessons work so well- because we get our students aware of what they’re doing in their own voices and how that affects everyone else around them.
I know you’re exhausted and frustrated. You feel like the world is always against you. It’s hard to find your voice when there are so many people telling you what to do, where to go, how to act, who to be friends with…I get it. But I want you to know that everything will be ok if you just take a deep breath and calm down for a second. There are 10 ways that I can help you find your voice again: 1) Get out in nature 2) Take time for yourself 3) Learn how other people see things 4) Find a place of refuge 5) Remember that most things aren’t worth getting upset about 6) Practice gratitude 7) Focus on the positive 8 ) Make it an adventure 9) Learn from other people’s mistakes and just have fun!
Screaming is a natural reaction to stress, frustration and anger. There are many times in life when it’s okay to scream! However, there are also times when screaming at people just isn’t appropriate. This blog post will be exploring how you can raise your voice instead of always resorting to the option of yelling or screaming.
What makes someone qualified? What makes them an expert on this topic? How have they solved their problem? What is the best way for me (insert name) to solve my problem?
Yesterday was a really hard day for me. I had to go back into the hospital because of my chronic condition, Crohn’s Disease. When I got home later that night all tired and rundown, it felt like everything around me wanted something from me again- friends who were asking about how long this most recent flare up would last; bills demanding payment; my car making noises as if telling me it needed an oil change…But then I remembered what one of the nurses at work told me years ago when she found out about my disease during orientation: “You’re going to get sick more often than your healthy counterparts, but you are also meant to live much longer.” It was a really nice outlook and it helped me to handle the challenges that came my way.
I feel like I’m screaming out for help but nobody seems to hear me…
It’s not just about having some time off work because of illness, it’s also about feeling like people are always watching you in anticipation of your next flare up or diagnosis- where they can offer their condolences or ask if there is anything new going on with my health. It feels as though I have this great burden placed upon me – as if no matter what happens everyone will be looking at how my life changes once again based solely on whether I am better today than yesterday. After all these years, sometimes I still get angry when somebody asks “How are you?”
I’m not just fine or good. I am exhausted and frustrated that my words don’t seem to be getting through, but with this blog post I hope to reach out to others who are also going through what I have been experiencing for the past decade.
It’s okay if you think it is selfish – after all, we’re only human! We tend to take care of those in our closest circles first before reaching out beyond them; and from time-to-time that extends a little too far until we find ourselves once again having no one at all left. But have faith because there will always someone ready and willing to listen…
