How to protect your voice

If you are speaking on a regular basis, taking care of your voice will be a high priority. Today I thought I would share a couple of tips to help protect your voice.

1. Drink plenty of water – this will rehydrate your vocal chords

2. Warm up your voice before speaking – this can be done by humming or singing

3. Pause regularly during your speech

4. Breathe from the diaphragm

5. Maintain your posture

6. If speaking to a large group, use a microphone

7. Don’t clear your throat, instead take a sip of water or swallow

8. Rest your voice as much as possible.

These tips will help you to protect your voice, remember you don’t want an aching, scratchy throat when you have to make a presentation.
