9 Communication Hacks to Control Your Tone of Voice + *NOT* Fly Off the Handle EP#316

Sep 15, 2019

Ever feel like you’re expressing yourself like a #boss and the other person is like, “Why are you yelling? Please don’t scream at me.” And then you’re all, “Whaaaa?! I’M NOT SCREAMING!” Or have you ever addressed something with your partner/bestie/co-worker and they told you your tone was a bit harsh? Um. Yeah. Me too.

Recently, a listener reached out to the show and asked how she could better control her voice when talking about serious issues with her husband. Often we think we are being crystal-fucking-clear about WHAT we are saying to another person, but in the passion of our emotions, we often lose sight of HOW we are expressing our thoughts.

In this episode, I spill nine, super-easy-to-implement communication hacks you can use to control your tone, not lose your ever-lovin’ mind, and communicate in a way that gets your point across and your needs met. Boom. Just like that.

This pod explores:

  • My favorite body-related, go-to tactics to use in the middle of a heated conversation
  • How to develop a “code word” or “phrase” to signal the convo is going off the rails
  • What to do if you actually DO lose your shit and need to clean up your mess

Wanna hang out in real life? And learn how to establish boundaries? And gain serious self-confidence? And connect with like-minded badasses who are dying to be in your corner? And eat amazing food in a #gorge destination? Of course, you do!

At the beginning of November, I will open registration for a radically transformative, IN-PERSON retreat and if you’re like, “AMY!! Tell me first!” then, Love, I’ve gotchu.

This retreat focuses on truly believing you are ‘enough’ and will be a deep dive into confidence, boundaries, and forgiveness. But space will be super limited (only 10 available!) If you’d like to be the absolute FIRST to hear about all the early-bird steals and deals, be sure to get your ass on this little list right HERE or click the image to the right. Can’t wait to hug you #IRL!

I'm a sassy-ass life coach and hypnotherapist who specializes in all things self-worth and confidence. I help aspiring badasses (hint: that's YOU!) speak up for themselves without being assholes. As in... telling your mom to stop butting into your relationship. You feel me, no?

It's time to let go of all that people-pleasing and cultivate some serious "enoughness". You're home, love. You're home.
