:cheer: I love these questions.
I drink A LOT of water. I mean like, my pee is clear every day (sorry. I take a lot of pride in that). I drink a lot of tea, especially Traditional Medecine's Throat Coat. On audition, performance, or lesson days, I usually add honey (you can be really generous with the honey). I really only go on full vocal rest if I'm sick or my throat hurts for some other reason, but I make a conscious effort to speak "correctly" as in to speak with approximately the same physiological adjustments you'd make to sing, especially during busy seasons like Christmas-time. I stay very far away from dairy on important days, and try to stick with things that are warm, soft, and light. I'm also a vegetarian, which I think has helped a lot. I also use a neti pot on audition/performance days, even if I'm not sick. I'd love to have a humidifier, especially in the cold months, but I haven't been able to afford one. :(
