On my way to VO Atlanta last week - a very large and loud voice-over conference, where I was sure to mingle with some cross-continental germs and be tempted to stay up later than usual - what was in the forefront of my mind as I got ready to get even busier?
Sleep is one of the most important factors in anyone's success as a voice talent, as a business owner, and as a busy parent.
I sleep for success. 8-1/2 hours.
NOTHING REPLACES SLEEP
While a good night's rest may be obvious for productivity and health in general, as a person who works with her voice, it's absolutely key. If you're exhausted, there is nothing that replaces sleep in order to speak with an even, consistent tone.
If you use your voice in your career in any way – sales, teaching, performance – sleep needs to be a priority. So let me share with you 10 Tips on How to Consistently Achieve Quality Sleep:
1. Sleep routine. Go to bed at the same time every night. Yup, 7 nights a week!Indeed, I am no doctor. However, my list is backed up by some good sources. What others say about solid shut-eye:
