Vocalization is operated by the vocal cord, breathing, the musculus extrinsic laryngis and vocal mucosa. The thickness of the vocal cords’ mucosa can be changed by the humidity and this change directly affects the voice.
Furthermore, the condition of the musculus extrinsic laryngis can also change suddenly by just a mild cough or sneezing, as well as your breathing being changed by the body’s positioning/stance.
The voice is significantly affected by such small matters.
The following 5 factors are suggested for preventing your voice from entering a state of bad condition:1.Improve the blood circulation of superior laryngeal artery 2.Improve the flexibility of the musculus extrinsic laryngis 3.Improve muscles of musculus extrinsic laryngis 4.Improve breathing techniques for your singing 5.Keep a strong mental balance
