How to Stay Healthy During Winter (For Singers)

Maintaining good vocal health is especially crucial in the winter months! If you've found that your singing just gets harder in the winter, you're not alone, and you're not a weirdo. The combination of cold weather, dry indoor environments, and nasty colds makes singing in winter harder....period!

In this video you'll learn why it's important to:

(1) Sleep with a humidifier next to your bed

(2) Drink tons of water

(3) Bundle up when you go outside!

(4) Warm up in the shower

(5) Take longer to warm up (in general)

Hope this is helpful! Stay healthy, my friends.

Love, Fel

    Thanks so much for these fantastic tips Fel! I struggle way too much with singing when it is just too cold in Winter - the cold really affects my body that I feel like giving up singing in Winter. But I do find that steaming - putting your head under a towel over a bowl of hot water, really helps. Thank you for this video!

    Love the video--and the hat! Great tips.
    I wonder... I know we should be drinking lots of water to stay hydrated and healthy during the normal course of the day (and when we wake up), but should we add something to the water just before/during singing practice, or drink something else? I find that drinking plain water just before practice tends to make my vocal cords feel drier, like the water is washing away the natural moisture there.
    Thanks! Off to check out the free vocal warm ups!

    I've got great recipe for winter tea! It's the best medicine for me. Take raspberry or fruits of the forest taste tea, add some grated ginger, wait a few minutes and add spoon of honey 🙂

    Great video and definitely helpful. I'm definitely going to buy a humidifier.
    Also what really helps is cleaning the sinuses with a nose shower with special salt.
    It helps me to prevend a sinusitus and helps to get rid of a cold much faster.

    Thank you so much for this video Fel, I'm still rather new to singing and have been pretty frustrated with myself throughout these winter months, wondering why it seemed more difficult than usual to get my voice warmed up. Love the adorable hat too!

    Hello Fel,
    I have not been able to access the Singing Transformation, because I am told that my password or email address is wrong. I am also not able to reset my password. Can you please help me here.
    Thanks,

    Reviewed this video again...the image of voice floating on breath is simply wonderful; singing from belly helps too. I just love this Singing Transformation course. It really is transforming my whole attitude and vocal approach so much for the better. Thank you always, Fel!
