As the weather changes, it is particularly important that we take good care of our vocal health. Always dress appropriately for the season. Wear your jacket or coat as is suitable for the temperature. When the weather gets really cold, wear your scarf, hat and gloves.
Taking care of your body is very important when it comes to keeping your voice in good shape. Be sure to eat lots of fruits and vegetables. Drink eight 8-oz glasses of water per day and get at least eight hours of sleep per night.
It’s very easy to get carried away when your favorite sports team is winning (or losing), but please don’t yell while attending sporting activities. This puts undue strain on your vocal cords.
If you use good judgement and take good care of your health, you will be able to rely on your voice to serve you well.
