HEALTHY BODY, HEALTHY VOICE:
Let’s start on the ground floor. Your voice is an organ; a valve in your respiratory system. As such it relies on the systems of your body - your neurological, respiratory, vascular, endocrine, muscular, and skeletal systems - to be healthy and function well. If something is out of whack - or not optimally healthy - with any of the systems in your body, it will affect your vocal health and functioning as well. Like anything else, it can’t function optimally if it’s not optimally healthy.
TAKEAWAY: Exercise, proper hydration, meditation, and good nutrition will all have positive effects on the sound and function of your voice.
