You may be surprised to know that the sound of your voice does not come only from the vibration of your vocal cords, – it is affected by your breathing, your chest and nasal resonance, the tension or relaxation of the muscles around your throat, as well as your mood or emotional state. So — breathe deeply, let your voice “echo” in your chest, and relax your throat for a beautiful voice. Also -take note of your mood -if you have just had an argument, or you are worrying about something important in your life, you may unwittingly hold your breath when you speak, breathe shallow, or tighten the muscles in your throat without realizing it. All of these subconscious habits will negatively impact your voice. So take a deep breath and see how the sound of your voice becomes better and more beautiful.
