I have noticed something in many of my students who are overcoming breathiness that I'd like to pass on to you. If you are practicing correctly to eliminate this voice-stealing and possibly damaging habit (speaking or singing too breathy), you will notice this:
Your throat will be much less dry so you will find yourself needing to drink much less water during speaking or singing performances.
This is because you are not dehydrating your vocal cords with too much air passing between them. Simple enough test! Drink lots of water between... not so much during... performances!
