Christmas parties are a great time of year! It is a chance to celebrate successes, let your hair down. If, like me, you sing and dance at events, you need to take particular care of your voice. But for everyone, the combination of alcohol, seasonal cheer, excitement and high jinks is GREAT FUN, but also a time to take care of your voice!
I have come across more people than I can count, who have strained their voices at parties; they have husky voices for days afterwards, and occasionally those people have permanently damaged their voices. Of course, a husky voice in certain industries might be an advantage, but for most industries having a husky voice is quite distracting for a listener.
In this week’s Superstar Communicator podcast I share top tips to ensure you avoid straining your voice, so you don’t feel uncomfortable; you don’t feel awful the next day and that you don’t permanently damage your voice.
The podcast shares tips such as:
- Making sure you don’t shout all evening when speaking to people
- Wrapping up when you go home – parties are hot!
- Ensuring you mix drink with water!
