Video Monday: I’m Wiped Out

Welcome to Video Monday!

Out loud; in your head; under your breath!

Practice makes progress!

This week:  I’m wiped out.

“I’m wiped out.”  is used when you are very tired and

feel like you can’t do another thing.

I’m wiped out from bronchitis.

I’m wiped out from work.

I’m wiped out from playing tennis.

If you are wiped out, make sure you rest!

Have a good one!

 

Sincerely,

Katie

Here is a suggestion! I have highlighted in red some great English for you to know!!!!

 

Fluids

Drink plenty of water. You need to keep your vocal cords moist so keep water with you at all times while your voice is temporarily on vacation. Try to drink at least six to eight glasses of water a day while your voice is out of commission.


 

Warm drinks can be soothing–just make sure they’re caffeine and alcohol free. These substances are dehydrating and will make your condition worse, according to ABC News Health. Instead, gravitate to herbal or caffeine-free teas, and skip the lemon slice. The citric acid in lemons can promote acid reflux which can further irritate the vocal cords, according to ABC News Health.

Here is a remedy! I have highlighted in red some great English for you to know!!!!

Don’t whisper.

It would seem like whispering would be less stressful on your vocal cords. But whispering actually puts more strain on your voice than talking normally does. In fact, whispering can be as straining as shouting. So, if you must speak, don’t whisper.

 

 

Have a good one!
