30 Vocal Tips in 30 Days
No. 16 STAY HYDRATED
Fun fact: You are hermitically sealed. Really. If anything from outside your body tries to make its way into your perfectly sterile internal environment, it must do so at a cellular level. That gives your immune and digestive systems the opportunity to look at each little cell and decide what to do with it.
The parts of your body that are exposed to the icky-yucky external world are protected by mucus (which is primarily water) created by special membranes. They play a fundamental role in your immune system.
Your voice is part of your respiratory system, and that system relies on its mucus membranes to stay healthy. Drinking enough water is the most important, and the easiest, thing you can do to support a healthy respiratory system, which includes your voice.
TAKEAWAY: If you’re not a water-drinker by nature, devise a plan that will help you keep hydrated during the day.
