Article : Anger and the Voice

I was recently approached by one of my Voicecoach ezine subscribers at greatvoice.com for advice on a common problem. He said that when he gets angry, he speaks loudly and he regrets it later on.

A loud voice and anger go hand in hand. The issue here is to discover why you become so angry, not why you speak so loudly. We are body, mind and spirit. It is impossible to have a problem in the body without a corresponding disturbance in the mind and spirit. The sound of our voice speaks volumes about our inner life. When you call a friend or loved one, can't you tell how they're feeling merely by the way they say "hello"?

Anger must be restrained. It is unhealthy to vent it freely in an attempt to blow off steam. My subscriber admitted he regrets and is embarrassed by these outbursts, therefore he instinctively knows they are wrong. Yelling and screaming in anger can actually damage the voice, not to mention raise your blood pressure and stress your body. An angry outburst can destroy in seconds a business or a personal relationship that took years of work to build.

CEO
The Great Voice


So how do we deal with the problem? A detailed answer is beyond the scope of this article. But I can tell you this. When we become angry it's often because another person's words or behavior remind us of something we do not want to see in ourselves. If we are ethical enough to admit this in the heat of the moment, we will start to calm down and the anger will subside, leaving us with a calmer, more pleasant-sounding voice.
