Tips To Maintain a Good Voice

Maintaining a healthy voice and getting a free-flowing powerful voice is possible with some simple steps. Singers, teachers, orators, lawyers and other such professionals who use their voice extensively in their daily life can follow healthy vocal habits. This will not only help maintain their voice, but also prevent voice disorders caused by misuse or abuse of voice.

• Drink plenty of water and keep the pharynx and vocal cords moist. Steam inhalation also helps.

• In case of dry weather or dryness in air conditioned rooms, keep a bowl of water in a corner, or maintain an indoor water fountain to maintain moisture in the atmosphere.

• Taking a glass of warm water can keep the moisture in vocal cords for a longer time, during times when voice is most used.

Tips To Maintain a Good Voice: Take a Glass of Warm Water

• Allergies, inflammations and infections of the ear, nose and throat need immediate attention. Drinking a lot of water helps in such conditions also.

• Caffeine containing drinks, alcohol and sugary drinks may cause dehydration. Avoid them or drink water soon after having them.

• Smoking creates a lot of disturbances in the mucous membrane linings of the larynx. Avoid smoking and smoky places.

• Do not clear the throat often as it creates a friction between the vocal cords, causing them to force upon each other. Instead, take warm water or yawn to relax the throat.

• Avoid talking in a situation with background noise as there is a tendency to talk loudly. Avoid shouting.

Tips To Maintain a Good Voice: Avoid Shouting

• Do not use voice continuously. Bring in deliberate pauses between sentences and phrases.

• Stop using voice for specified periods of time, to give it some rest.
