Many people have opposing opinions about how napping can relate to and influence an individual’s vocalization.
I’ll scientifically and unilaterally explain this.
I have 22 categories that influence breathing and vocalization. Let’s try to figure out who is right.(18)
Part 18 is “Nap”
An ‘Opera singer’ once said to me, “I can sing very well after a taking nap.”
I’ve figured out that napping is very beneficial for the voice.
Although noticible results vary, and depend on the quality and length of sleep. Sleeping during the day is same as sleeping at night. Any kind of rest, whether it be long or short, can soothe muscles after using them so much. The process of vocalization involves the use of many muscles.
You need good flexibility and mobility of the throat muscles for singing.
There is a possibility of causing disorders of the lactate metabolism, if you vocalize for long periods of time. It is difficult to produce a good voice when tired or exhausted. I’ve seen so many cases, where the singer’s voice condition and quality suffered after vocalizing too much.
Please be aware that.
Contrary to the above, the throat muscles cannot move well soon after waking up. Muscles need time to warm up to start moving, similar with sports.
Several people tell me that they feel, they do not like taking naps because it makes them feel lazy or groggy shortly after waking up. I do not want to recommend if you are this kind of person to take naps often, but once and a while is okay.
Therefore, if you take a nap, I would recommend you consider the following:
1:A short nap time is best. Set a timer to avoid oversleeping.
2:Take time after waking up
These statements are in favor and against naps, and how napping can affect an invidual’s vocalization.
