Speaker/Voice Coach Joni Wilson shares some facts about our communication tool, our voice.
• Never whisper if you are losing your voice. You risk damaging your vocal cords.
• Excessive heat and air-conditioning will be dehydrating to your vocal cords.
• Use of decongestants when you have a cold will dry up mucous. This will make your voice sound rough and scratchy.
• Don’t clear your throat—instead, sip water to relax your larynx.
• Have a cough? Don’t use cough drops with menthol. The cooling factor in menthol will freeze your cords. (Monday Morning Mindfulness)
