|Silent as a stone, while letting your voice heal|
I once had it so bad, and it hurt to make any attempt to talk, that I communicated with notes instead. My family got used to it, and I came up with some shorthand, because it takes a lot longer to write than speak. During this period it struck me how much I didn't need to say, and that I generally talk WAY more than I need to. In time, with the imposed silence, I came to terms with the quiet and calm of slowing down, and my voice did eventually come back. (along with my loquaciousness...)
Last week my blog subject was "Back to School". The link I'd like to share with you today, below, is all about keeping your voice strong and healthy throughout the school year. Whatever your venue for talking is, I invite you to join me in trying each of the 5 tips given. Your vocal muscles will thank you!
