As we transition to the lovely season of Fall, it's always good to check in with our bodies to see how we are feeling. Alot of people say during this time of the year, their eyes or throat are extremely dry. There skin is being affected and some people even feel more tired than usual.
Although, I'm no Doctor, the advice I can give from over my years of experience is take care of yourself! Drink plenty of water, breathe deeply and support your sound so your voice isn't hoarse by the end of the day. Drink lovely lemon and ginger tea to help soothe the throat, but it will also build the immune system!-DOUBLE WIN!!
Take Vitamin C whether it is from the lovely Florida fruit (the orange), or in powder form, whatever works for your body!
Eat lots of green leafy vegetables for so many incredibly important nutrients and remember to take Vitamin D. Vitamin D is a hormone and is crucial to our bodies. Being Canadian, we tend to be depleted of this essential hormone during this time and as we transition into Winter. You can always check your vitamin D levels by going to your Family Doctor, it is something you have to pay for, but it isn't too expensive.
As always, taking care of your body is important not only as a professional singer, but for anyone.
