How to Sing When You’re Sick

Hello singers. We are on the cusp of a new season. As exciting as it is to get out of this snowy, cold Winter and into Spring, we have to be on the defense. We all have to be more careful to avoid getting sick. In addition to our bodies getting used to the warmer weather, many of us suffer from Spring and Summer allergies. For those who take medicine to counter act the allergies, be aware that most brands dry out your whole nasal passage and your voice. This makes it harder to sing and sound like your singing-self.

I hope no one reading this gets sick or suffers from allergies. But, odds are it will happen. So, to avoid getting sick and/or reduce your suffering from allergies, try this 4 step combination:

  1. Sleep – 7 to 9 hours at least 5 days a week
  2. Hydrate – Drink water (60-100 ounces daily). Your age, size, gender, and activity level is the reason for that 40 ounce difference.
  3. Exercise – Aim for at least 30 minutes of moderate exercise, 4 days a week. Anything that gets your heart rate pumping,(140-160BPM) is a great target zone.
  4. Sterilize – Mom always made you wash up before dinner for a reason. Our hands come in contact with so many things throughout the day that can make you sick. Make sure you wash your hands often. (Thanks Mom).

Doing these 4 things will GREATLY reduce your chances of becoming sick. However, we can be on the defense all we want and still sometimes find ourselves sick. In this video, I offer remedies to help you get you feeling like yourself again as quickly as possible. If you have a gig coming up and you are sick, I urge you to watch this video. Through so much research and trial and error, this stuff works the best for me. I hope you find it does the same for you too.
