Adjust the Volume of Your Voice
Sounds affect your emotions. Sounds pleasing to the ears like nature sounds let you relax, while car horns and mechanical noise make you frown and increase your stress.
The same goes for human voices. Laughter, singing, and compliment make the other person feel good, while angry voice, irritating words, and complaints make the listener feel unpleasant. So why don’t you volume up when you speak ear-pleasing words that have a positive effect on each other, and volume down when you come to high words carried away by negative feelings?
A saying goes, “Happiness looks into the house full of laughter, and misfortune looks into the house with angry shouts.” This month, adjust your voice volume properly to invite happiness to your home.
