Podcasting sounds easy. You get a bunch of recording equipment, find something you want to say, and record it, right?
That’s kind of true, but it’s more complicated than that. Achieving broadcast-quality sound takes technical skill and patience. Talking eloquently and injecting your subject with humor and sincerity, while making it an entertaining listening experience is hard to do. Finally, there’s the recording itself, the bit where you use the most vital piece of equipment – your voice.
Keeping an even, consistent tone (rather than a monotonous one) and keeping control over your vocals takes practice and a sensible approach to health and wellbeing.
Breath control is key to professional delivery. Podcasters can’t afford to rush to the end of sentences or stop midway through to grab an audible breath. Getting your breathing right helps to give your podcast a slicker sound.
More of us are getting wise to the value of self-care. Don’t just eat vegetables and choose the fruit salad over a gooey chocolate dessert just because you’re supposed to. Do so mindfully, because you love your body and want to treat it well and help it to be robust and healthy.
Self-care extends to your sleep routine. Too little sleep – especially on a regular basis – can affect the timbre of your voice. Making rest and sleep time a priority in your life pays big dividends in terms of your health.
Sit Straight and Stand Tall
In other words: posture! Maintaining a good sitting and standing posture means that your voice projects better and you will be less prone to aching shoulder and neck muscles after a few hours hunched over your microphone.
We cannot overstate how important hydration is to your voice. Start the day with a long glass of alkaline hydrogen water and keep a water bottle or glass with you to sip from while you work. One of the most popular benefits of hydrogen water is that its unique structure means those hydrating properties work faster and for longer than regular water.
