Welcome back to Episode #40 of The Daily Interaction podcast. Today’s topic is on Episode 40 – Communicating without Your Voice. How do you continue to communicate and interact with the world around you when you have totally and completely LOST your voice? That’s what happened to me this week and that’s our topic for today.
If you’ve never had this happen to you, then what a remarkable thing! If you have, I feel for you! Losing your voice is no fun. I don’t mean getting a little sick or stuffy and sounding all husky like Kathleen Turner, I mean losing your voice cold-turkey. No voice. No sound. No audio. Nothing coming out. What do you do?
So today, while still not sounding quite like myself, I wanted to share with you what happened to me when I was hit like a ton of bricks with a bad and fast case of laryngitis this week, and what you can do to protect your voice and to deal with a situation such as this if it should ever happen to you?

Your Weekly Friday Show Notes:
1. How I reacted to getting sick on my birthday, losing my voice the next day and not being able to speak for 3 days and why this is important to learn and how the power of positive thoughts is FINALLY manifesting itself.
2. Why is it so hard for us as human beings to be grateful for all that we have been blessed with, despite the best of our intentions, and why it is totally normal.
3. The story of one of my favorite heroines, Celine Dion, and what her voice coach taught her to day, a 5-year daily investment in her voice which she decided to pursue despite her husband’s doubts about the advice.
4. How others around us react when they find out that we have lost our voice, and why this is particularly funny where husbands are concerned.
5. The creative and new ways that you can communicate without your voice such as using your eyes, your head nods, your hand gestures, writing, and more.
6. The experience of not hearing yourself talk or speak for several days, and why it feels more like an introspection and a type of meditation than it does sickness, and a fresh new perspective on a temporary handicap.
7. My desires to learn sign language and my sincere desire to pursue it so that I can communicate with those who cannot talk.
8. The 4 ways that you can take care of your voice during a case of laryngitis or any other voice-related issue which leaves you bereft of that precious commodity.
Don’t forget that I am running my once-a-year Green Juicing Intensive Clinic on May 5th to May 25th, and if that kind of thing interests you, then check it out – I still have a few seats in the clinic.
