More on how to protect your voice

On my last blog we looked at how to protect your voice when it comes to speaking in public. Today I thought I would create a list of things to avoid when it comes to your voice and speaking.

  1. Smoking – we all know that smoking is bad for us but smoke can irritate your vocal chords
  2. Alcohol and caffeine – these two drinks can dehydrate your throat and your body
  3. Dairy products – dairy products may increase mucus production in the throat
  4. Fried foods- fried foods can leave a coating on your vocal chords which could affect the sound you produce
  5. Over use – avoid shouting, if you have a large audience please use a microphone.

Follow these simple suggestions and you are well on your way to protecting your voice.
