Winter’s cold, changing weather and dry indoor climates can put a lot of stress on your body, especially the respiratory system and your voice. Here are five easy ways to care for your voice this winter:
- Drink lots of fluid, especially water
- Use a humidifier
- Stay away from caffeine and alcohol if you have to speak, as they dehydrate
- Avoid milk products and chocolate, as they can lead to mucous congestion
- Suck on hard candy for added moisture
Everyone’s system is different, so know how you react to different foods and environmental conditions.
