I’ve had a lot of people ask me how to rest their voices. The vocal cords, like other muscles, may need rest due to simply being tired from lots of use or overuse. They may need rest due to a pathology, like vocal nodules, a hemorrhage, polyps, or other problems you hopefully don’t have.
The problem is, most people don’t know how to properly rest their voices. They’ll talk, whisper, or listen along to music, which can use both the cords themselves, along with the other laryngeal muscles.
