In general, the first step to change is awareness. You've got to become mindful of how you're using, or abusing our voice. As you speak, start listening to yourself! Do you talk loudly in order to be heard over talking or over background noise? In your job, do you attempt to push your voice for maximum volume? Do you use your voice constantly without occasional rest? Begin now to monitor your volume, pitch, and breath control and be willing to learn new ways of using your voice to maintain vocal health.
