Here are some gentle reminders if you're going to be singing:
- Getting ready for a road trip? Don't forget to take and pack your immune system herbs and supplements that work for you. If you're going somewhere dry, you might even pack a portable warm air humidifier.
- Getting ready for a holiday parties and family reunions? Getting ready for outside games or events? Don't forget to wear something which will protect your ears and your neck. Also... don't forget to bring water and stay well-hydrated. Also... when you laugh, squeal or scream for joy, be sure and pull that vocal sound.. don't push it! I know... it's the last thing you'd be thinking about, so you better practice pulling now!
- Getting ready for holiday feasts? Don't forget to limit mucous-enhancing foods like rich cream-based sauces, heavy casseroles, fatty meat portions, excessive deserts, alcoholic and caffeinated drinks. You CAN have some of these things, after all, even YOU can celebrate, but if you limit these heavy and toxic substances, you will be able to be in better voice. (Also better health). I say this as I wolf down a slice of my mother's traditional homemade pecan pie:)
- Getting ready for a holiday performance? Don't forget to warm up your voice with your vocal exercises! Even if it's just 5 or 10 minutes... warmup and remember to pull, not to push, your voice.
Thank you for being part of my journey. I can almost hear you singing! God bless you and your precious voices... love, Judy
