A journalism student asked me recently what my favorite vocal exercise was. That got me thinking about what exercises I would do just before voicing something.
I came up with my Go-To Vocal Exercises that would be indispensible for me if I were on the air every day. These exercises focus on releasing tension in the upper body and oral cavity.
I've also included one to increase my heart rate slightly to wake up my brain so I'll be sharp and ready to voice.
Want to give them a try? Let's get started!
REPEAT AFTER ME ...
These Go-To Vocal Exercises take less than 2 minutes to complete, but they have a big payoff. You will have less tension in your neck and upper body. You will be able to articulate more easily, and your brain will be sharper.
Not bad for 2 minutes of your time!
