The other day, I was on a teleseminar where the speaker was out of breath the whole time. It wasn't that he was talking fast; it seemed more like he was holding his breath.
It was exhausting for me to listen to him. I felt like *I* was out of breath the whole time.
My tip of the day: Breathe.
When you breathe, you:
* Send more oxygen to your brain and muscles
* Increase blood flow
* Support your voice
* Reduce tension that can make your voice weak or quivery
Slow down and be conscious of your breath and how you sound to your audience. If you're holding your breath and running out of air, they can hear it. It's uncomfortable for you and uncomfortable for them!
