Activity-1: Since we have new members we discussed What is Stammering and its probable causes. It cleared some of the doubts of our new members.A good interactive sessions to know new members.
Activity-2: Introduction round, where we maintained slow speaking style, we took strong feedback from ears of what sounds we produced and also concentrated on good breathing style.
Activity-3: Anxiety control round In this every member asks a question to a member and it shall be answered after 15seconds.Taking our own time for answering question makes us less anxious on producing speech or finishing the answer faster.
Activity-4:Loud Speaking/ Shouting activity, We shouted like hell in park for sometime making other park members feel that Lions are roaring in Park 🙂 We stood in a line with atleast 3meters apart from each other and extreme persons will start communicating. Refer below pics for this activity
Activity-5: We had a proverb explanation “Necessity is the Mother of Invention“. We know how important slow talking is but we still never hold strong on talking slowly. So we discussed in an interactive minutes where everyone discussed how necessity is a slow style of speaking in gaining confidence in speech patterns. Every person said two points on this. This is making ourselves realize the necessity and now the invention(implementing of slow speaking)comes automatically 🙂
Activity-6: Meditation, we did meditation for few minutes keeping in mind about slow speaking. We had once again Self intros after meditation where every member has introduced in a slow speaking style.
Activity-7: Speaking on any topic (slow speaking style), Every member is given ample amount of time and asked to talk very slow about their choice topic by closing eyes and they are also asked to push their limits in slow speaking.They shall talk in such a steady phase that they didn’t talk such a slow style till date. Once they are done with speech we asked them again to tell about another topic, again this time he shall even push his slow speaking efficiency( slower than earlier speech ! ) Wow result is simply wow. We tasted the bliss of our speech !!!
After this we left for the day with satisfied minds with enjoying our speech patterns improvement 🙂
