Protect your voice for public speaking
Most speakers forget the fact that they have to have a healthy and rounded voice as a lecturer. Some other speakers believe they have to have a unique voice as TV announcers!
They both are wrong. If someone has an attractive voice, it’s fine but it’s not an essential factor. As speakers, we only need to have a healthy voice which doesn’t annoy the audience the way they won’t want to listen to us. But how?
In this article, I am going to tell you how to protect your voice and keep it healthy.
These instructions originated from daily norms and manners that we deal with during the day and can affect our voice and voice box.
I want to speak about a few points. I hope you can use them for a better cause.
One common mistake speakers make is that they think smoking is going to help them have a better voice. I’ve heard it from several speakers and I was shocked. They hurt their larynx and expect to have a rounded and soft voice. Maybe you feel your voice is bass at first but then it makes it scratched; as a result, your voice won’t be attractive. Smoking is never going to protect your voice
People think they can reduce their stress by drinking alcohol. They are wrong. It has a terrible effect. You may have seen some people drink, then go to TV shows and mess things up. These people usually are not allowed to enter the studio.
3- Do not eat dairy products to protect your voice
It’s essential to have a soft voice during the presentation or public speaking. You don’t want to cough all the time, so you have to protect your voice. one simple way of doing so is not to eat dairy products (yogurt, milk, …) the night before you have a presentation because your throat will be dry in the morning and you have to cough to soften your voice. It’s not over yet. You have to cough during the presentation too. Besides, you don’t have to eat dairy products before the presentation. If you eat, at least use something afterward to reduce that effect, for example, hot tea should do the trick.
