Resolution: Drink More Water
A constant complaint, but I don’t like the taste of water! Think about how valuable it is to your body and find a way to flavor it if you need to (add a little fruit or cucumber to the water) !
Water is essential to our being (we are composed of a lot of water and need to replenish it). The more water you have in your system, the better and longer you can sing. It enables the voice to bounce back and have energy. Breathing in and out with long phrases can be drying to the vocal cords. Water replenishes this act. If you are starting to fight a cold or virus, an increase in water can help flush it out of your system faster. You will have more energy with more hydration. Yes, you will initially have to run to the bathroom a little more often at first, but challenge yourself. Drink 64 oz or more of water a day and see how it improves your energy and the quality of your singing voice!
