The less you try the more fluent you’ll be

stuttering try less

A big part of stuttering comes out of the idea that you can’t speak fluent and therefore have to DO something for it. But that effort, forcing and doing your best actually produces more stuttering.

Solution? Realise you’re already a fluent speaker and that there’s nothing to accomplish. There’s nothing to attain. There’s nothing to strive for.

Once you understand this, you’ll no longer feel the urge to try to control every word you speak. And that’s the moment that everything will start flowing more and more, including your speech.

Stuttering and the importance of breathing

Here’s a video on the importance of breathing on the path of becoming free of stuttering.

Overcoming stuttering has a lot to do with working on the psychological, emotional and physical aspects of it.

Breathing – however underestimated – has the power to influence, change and transform all those three aspects. However in order to do that, one has to breathe the right way: breathing into the pelvic floor.

Breathing properly starts with breathing out. Because breathing out is letting go. Secondly there’s the inbreath, which has to be done without any effort on your part. One has to simply let the breath come, and also let the breath go.

This way we learn to let go of tension, negative thinking, emotions and thus becoming more and more free of stuttering – or stammering.

Enjoy,
