I don’t always have a completely resolute opinion about the best remedy for your voice, because what works for one person may not work as well for another. But when it comes to the question of what temperature your water should be, I do have a strong opinion: Don’t drink ice water!
If you didn’t know why, check out today’s vocal health video where I share why ice water is truly not ideal for your voice (or really any of the internal tissues of your body), and why I strongly recommend drinking room temperature water for your health and your voice.
And now that you’re armed with this knowledge, you can be obnoxious like me at restaurants and ask for water with no ice. (I mean, who wants ice water when the weather is getting cold anyway, amirite?!? )
Stay warm out there!
