Winter Voice CareSmaller Font  Larger Font

Colds and laryngitis are unfortunately common at this time of year. Public health campaigns about hand-washing and about coughing into your sleeve do help limit transmission of the bugs that cause these problems. But if you rely heavily on your voice— teaching, talking to clients, singing—even a few days of hoarseness can become a serious drag.

To protect yourself and your voice:

* Use a steam vaporizer every night, and when you’re ill take longer hot showers. The moisture soothes your airway and discourages many cold viruses from colonizing your nose and throat.

* Get plenty of sleep. Recent research publicized on CNN and elsewhere showed that people who got 8-9 hours of sleep regularly, and were exposed to a cold virus, were much less likely to get sick than people who sleep less than 7 hours.

* If laryngitis strikes, KEEP QUIET! When your vocal cords are swollen and sore, 24-48 hours of very conservative voice use (minimal talking; no yelling or singing) can really help
