Biohack Your Voice for Better Communication Instantly – Roger Love with Dave Asprey : 752

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, you’re going to find out just how much your voice influences your life. People make value judgments about you within three seconds of hearing your voice. You may not even realize how much it’s affecting your career or your personal relationships. 

So, we’re going to biohack your voice! I’ve invited Roger Love on the show because he’s one of the world’s leading authorities on vocal sound. I’ve been working with him myself and have learned so much about how I breathe and how my nervous system works. 

“Singing and speaking is basically the exact same thing,” Roger says. “When you sing, you have control over pitch, how high or how low you go, pace, how fast or how slow you go. Melody: does it go up like this or does it go down like this? Volume and tone matter. Singers and speakers actually have the same ingredients like great chefs have. It's about how you mix those ingredients.”

In his 30 years of voice coaching experience, he’s trained over 130,000 people worldwide, including professional speakers, singers and actors (many who’ve won Grammy and Oscar awards) and professional communicators. Roger has won awards in film coaching credits, most recently for “A Star Is Born” featuring actor. Bradley Cooper, who sang all the songs himself, and Lady Gaga.

Roger combines scientific research with innovative techniques to go beyond simply word-smithing to help people create their own unique “sound” and find their voice. 

He goes on to explain that “speaking is actually physically connecting with people because it’s vibrating your body,” Roger says. “If the sounds hit you, they vibrate your body. So those sounds go into the first part of the brain that's called the amygdala. And the job of the amygdala is to only let things through to the prefrontal cortex if it's emotional.”

If you make sounds where the melodies, volumes and tonal qualities are emotional, then the amygdala sends it right to the prefrontal cortex, where it gets processed, thought about, felt about and stored into memory and then the person can take action on it. 

Super cool to know how our bodies and brains work together to make sense of vocal sounds!

And this matters for you now more than ever, because you spend all day every day, if you work from home, using your voice, in fact, your voice becomes much more important than the grainy video from your webcam most likely. This episode is full of great tips you can start using right away.
