Beth Lawrence Viva La Voice "Inspiring The Artist In Everyone!"
Like all parts of our body, we take our voices for granted, and if we're not careful, that once clear voice can begin to show signs of wear and tear. Most of us are aware that to maintain our bodies we have to develop the good, healthy habits of eating, hygiene, exercise and mental calm. To preserve a strong, healthy voice into old age is simple, and these five steps will not only benefit the voice, but personal well-being in general.
In general, the first step to change is awareness. We've got to become mindful of how we're using, or abusing our voice. As you speak, start listening to yourself! Do you talk loudly in order to be heard over talking or background noise? In your job, do you attempt to push your voice for maximum volume? Do you use your voice constantly without occasional rest? Begin now to monitor your volume, pitch and breath control and be willing to learn new ways of using your voice to maintain vocal health.
