"The most precious things in speech are the pauses.." Ralph Waldo Emerson
- Avoid noisy environments- damages vocal cords – (also means talk only within your capabilities)- I have to remember this one because I always lose my voice in a crowded room.
- Stay hydrated- especially if doing public speaking- I have to drink twice as much water when I speak!
- Avoid irritants like alcohol, tobacco, substances that dry the throat.
- Avoid screaming
- Avoid clearing throat forcibly
- Sleep well.
- Treat TMJ
A Big thank you to Dr. De Leon!
