It happens sometimes. You are so ramped up to do a vo, but your voice decides not to co-operate! It folds its arms and suddenly becomes stubborn and there's absolutely nothing you can do to coax it out of it's stranglehold. That happened to me yesterday as I had a 64 page script to voice. Take, after take, after take.... Omigosh! What was I going to do?! To win the battle, I had to surrender. Yes, that's right! I had to surrender; I waved the little white flag. I had to rest. So, I signed the Peace Treaty with my voice and kept my mouth shut. This morning, I approached the microphone and knocked the script out without a very supportive and happy voice. So... keep your voice happy by pampering it with some quiet time every now and then so it will fight beside you rather than against you.
If you have read this far, then I want to share an old, old secret with you that you may or may not know about. You can help protect your voice by drinking a special potion that has been around since 400 BC. It will help keep you healthy, promote good sinus passages, and good breath, and many, many other things. Interested? Here is the secret: Mix a teaspoon of natural, organic, dark, raw honey and one or two teaspoons of natural, organic, raw apple cider vinegar. Dilute with some water and drink it down. The honey and vinegar MUST BE NATURAL, ORGANIC, and RAW...... not pasteurized. Sterilization kills all of the beneficial enzymes necessary for the elixir to work, so make sure you get the natural, organic, raw honey and vinegar. What this does is it helps to keep your body alkaline. If you cringe when you first drink this, then you are probably acidic, which isn't good for your health. I cringed when I first started... boy did I cringe. However, after 2 weeks, the drink is actually very pleasant and enjoyable even! This is one way you know you are now 'alkaline'. As with anything, consult your doctor. This is just my testimonial and how it personally worked for me. I can tell you, it has made a big difference.
Here's to your health,
