    with the microphone problem, try putting one hand on your stomach, this also helps you to constantly sing from your diaphragm, which will help with the straining problem.

    mine?

    That certainly is a habit to break, but do not go too far in breaking it. Standing stiff and with no movement is just as bad.

    I would suggest substituting other movement. Continue moving you hands, but work to keep the movement below your waist, with just occasional movement higher. Work out a small choreographed moves for the song that work with the phrase you are singing; work in bending your knees and other SMALL movement.

    I have weird habits, too.

    I always throw my hands around

    when I sing.

    (think Mariah Carey lol)

    I've done this many times in front

    of audiences.

    You have have to practice not doing it.

    Eventually, you'll stop.

    But, hey, if that doesn't work.

    just get a microphone.

    Problem solved. :)

    good luck.

    Tie your hands behind your back and sing with your eyes closed.
