can you do to keep your voice strong, clean and clear for
your next performances?
There are a lot of things you can do mechanically, but nutritionally,
we've found a number of things that work real well. Drinking
room temperature distilled water really helps and I always
eat a handful of grapes before the morning presentations and
a raw salad before my afternoon or evening presentations.
And I really try to stay away from all the foods that are
are the white sugars ... the white flours ... the white rice,
and especially the white milk in any form, cheese, yogurts,
ice cream, etc. Now that doesn't mean you can't ever enjoy
these foods again. I just try to stay away from them within
48 hours of a performance because they cause a raspiness in
my voice from all the mucous they form. This tends to make
me need to clear my throat a lot, which annoys my audience.
you eat at the functions, try to DESERT the DESSERTS.
try to avoid drinking or eating anything that's cold as they
make your vocal cords contract and your voice is much more
strained. We've found room temperature is always best.
during my seminars, I sip room temperature or hot, distilled
can know all there is to marketing and promotion, but our
jobs depend greatly on the clarity, inflection and richness
of our voices.
