Help! I’m talking too fast! Tip 1: Ground

Hi Friends,

Do you feel like, or have you gotten feedback that you talk too fast? You know you’re talking too fast if you are struggling to keep up with the act of speaking or if you can tell your listener is struggling to understand you, or both. 

Talking too fast often comes from nervous, excited or passionate energy, which surges upwards through the body and can result in speeding up your tempo. But if you try to think of combating that energy by artificially slowing yourself down, it will feel and sound weird for everyone, because it won’t be authentic. 

I’ll be doing a three-video series that talks you through three tips for organically slowing down your speech and this is video 1. The first tip? Ground that energy. Watch to see how. 

Try this out and let me know how it goes. 

ps. If you’d like more or longer grounding warm ups, search through the archives of this website. If you want them in downloadable format, search for ‘BeSpoke Speaks’ on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon Music, Google Podcasts, Buzzsprout or Stitcher.

Take good care,
