Do you swallow your words when you speak?

Have you ever had dry mouth?

It’s awful right? Your throat gets scratchy & irritated and you might even have to cough. Not so good during a speech or interview

Too much saliva is also bad. You’re gonna have to swallow and that’s also tough during a speech or conversation

Swallowing your words really means swallowing AS you say your words. That’s why folks notice it. It makes you sound nervous and unsure

  • Swallow before or after you say a word, in the spaces
  • Take your time
  • Use pauses wisely
  • You’ll give yourself space to clear your mouth, control your breathing, and catch your breath
  • You will sound thoughtful and smart when you make space for vocal housekeeping
  • Folks won’t notice your swallows as much
  • You won’t run out of breath
  • Don’t be afraid of pausing. You need those quick rest stops along the road of your speech or conversation
  • You’ll sound and feel more calm and confident.
