Vocal Technique (Swallowing Muscles)

I have this problem where I engage my swallowing muscles under my chin when I sing and even talk. I don't know what to do, it has become a habit and I can't really control it. Is there anything I can do to break this habit?

    You can massage the digastric muscle. That's the tight area behind the chin that stretches toward the throat. Just relax it and massage that area gently as you try to relax it.

    Tensing up any of the swallowing muscles won't help you to sing. Relaxing them can help you to sing with less tension.
