Using Your Voice Regularly? Learn Voice Care
11th September 2019
Voice Care Tips Series - Tip 2
This post is to get you to think about what you use your voice for on a daily and regular basis, so you can look more at the tips that may help you.
There are many people who are in very obvious voice use positions such as; voice-over artists, actors, broadcasters, professional public speakers, and those in teaching positions and these people can struggle to last through the day with their speaking voice and think this is okay. It's not okay for your voice.
If you fall into this category, without help, your voice can get into all sorts of problems and potentially create problems for your career. Other people use their voices quite a lot in their work or during the course of their hobbies, and don't really realise it until they lose their voice due to something like a nasty virus, or just overuse, misuse or even 'abuse'; the latter refers to using your voice, too often, too loudly and too much!
Take some time over this week to consider all the speaking you do in your days and weeks and note any time your voice works specifically well and not so well. Do make a note of them as this will help you determine which tips to use in the following weeks. For example; my voice is better after a couple of hours of speaking - then a warm-up for you and your voice could help your day start more smoothly. Look out for the regular posts and see if anything can help you further (or just give me a call!). Enjoy using and following these voice tips and suggestions and contact me if you would like more specific help.
