Body Posture – Increase Vocal Power
Have you ever after sitting down for a while suddenly picked up the phone and started speaking and found that your voice felt stuck and just too quiet?
When you carry your body well you are able to have more body strength to produce a powerful voice that will ultimately bring out your presence.
To have a stronger voice you must use your whole body. If you are sitting, crouched over a computer, a phone, or a small device and you want to use your voice you should first stand and move your body around to generate more power and energy in your body and then it will be easier to speak out.
“The only reason to master this technique is to be sure the body does not interfere with the soul’s free expression.”La Meri
Research at Harvard and Columbia Business Schools shows that by holding your body in an expansive way, (leaning back with hands behind the head and feet up on a desk, or standing with legs and arms stretched wide open) for as little as two minutes stimulates higher levels of testosterone, the hormone linked to power and dominance and lower levels of cortisol, a stress hormone.
When you activate your body you propel your voice to be heard. If you body is lifeless and not active your voice will also be dull and empty. When you speak your words can be creative and inspire not only yourself but others too. Check out how you can use your voice better on the video below.
