I know the weather is changing, so we as singers, need to stay on our toes to keep our instruments in tact.
Check out my newest video and blog post on 5 Easy Ways to Protect Your Voice This Season!
5. Get Plenty of Rest
Sleep is needed for any part of the body to function properly. A well rested voice will more than likely yield more successful results than a voice that has not had any sleep.
4. Avoid Being Loud
Loud talking, singing, and screaming does not benefit the voice. I do understand it's football season, but as a singer, if you can avoid yelling at the television it will benefit you in the long run.
3. Avoid Overeating
Thanksgiving, Christmas, and the New Year are right around the corner. Overeating not only affects your health, but it also affects your voice. I know it may sound strange, but overeating is linked to acid reflux disease, which is also a leading cause of EXTREME HOARSENESS!
2. Stay Warm
If you live in a place like Memphis, TN, the weather can be a little unpredictable. I recommend doing whatever you need to do to keep your body at a neutral temperature. It's not good to be extremely hot or extremely cold. Remember you can protect your precious instrument with a nice and stylish scarf. (Even when you don't think you may need one.) Keeping the throat and body at stable temperatures will help when its time to perform.
1. Stay Hydrated!
We all know this one! Water is going to be your best friend as a singer. If you want to get the best out of your voice make sure you are fully hydrated!
