Stuttering is a problem that can create a multitude of problems for your social life. People who stutter often have trouble with self-confidence; they hesitate to interact with others, which leads to fewer relationships, difficulty at work, and an inability to speak in public. Fortunately, there are a few simple ways that you can help yourself stop stuttering.
First, remember to relax. Of course, this will be difficult, but try not to focus on your stuttering problem too much. If you focus too heavily on your stuttering problem, you will grow anxious, and the result will be that you will stutter more than ever. Take a deep breath, and remain calm and confident as you speak.
Before you speak, take a moment to gather your thoughts and really consider what you are about to say. Do not feel pressured to speak quickly and think before you begin. This will not only improve your stutter, but it will also keep you from unintentionally saying something you might regret.
Tips to help you stop stuttering
Lastly, try putting rhythm into your voice. This does not have to be extremely noticeable. The part of the brain that controls music and rhythm is separate from the part that causes you to stutter. This is why people can sing without stuttering. Putting a rhythm to your words puts that area of your brain to work and helps eliminate your stuttering.
These few simple tips often help with stuttering problems. Even if you are worried about your stuttering, keep talking and practicing while keeping these ideas in mind and soon you will be able to talk, stutter free, and with confidence. If you are still having trouble, you should consider consulting with one of Sydney’s professional speech pathologists.
