The family day was a huge success, according to my own standards. The dance was a success too, except that towards the end, I was dancing while holding Maxyn because she thought I was missing! LOL.
I was probably one of the busiest during that event as I explain each game to the players. Then there was the dance. And my own children to take care of. After explaining about three games, my throat is already aching. In fact, as I write this, I feel like scratching my throat. I feel like something is stuck to it.
So here are a few tips to prevent sore throat.
- Drink often. Keep a bottle of water handy. If you can drink water that is at room temperature, the better.
- Do not talk much, specially when there is no need. I think this is a major problem for me because I am very very talkative.
- Use a microphone when talking to a large number of people. In this way, you do not need to shout and you will not force your throat and voice box.
- If you feel that your throat is already aching and itchy, gargle with antiseptic liquid that works for you. If you do not have any, warm water with salt works wonders.
- Rest and stop talking.
