30 Vocal Tips in 30 Days
No. 20 WARMING UP HELPS. REALLY.
If you’re running a 5K, you warm up and stretch. It makes running feel better, improves your form, and helps you avoid injury. You might run a 5K several times a week, or almost never. But when you do, warming up is a smart thing to do.
Same goes for your voice. If you’re going to use it – presenting, teaching, singing – warm it up. Vocal warm ups do that; literally. The vibrations cause an increase of blood flow to, and temperature of, the muscles of the voice. That, in turn, allows for greater flexibility, efficiency, and tone. It also helps you get your head in the game. Just sayin’…
TAKEAWAY: Warming up makes a positive difference in both your voice and your attitude.
