As performing artists, our BODIES are our instruments. We’ve got to take care of our bodies in meaningful ways. No matter what you do for a living, your body goes with you. Here’s a few reminders for all of us…
Be mindful of what, how much and when you eat. Choose unprocessed food as often as you can. Make fresh vegetables and fruit a part of your daily diet. You can further help your body by limiting sugars, sodium, fats and certain meats.
Make sleep a priority. Give your body the time it needs to rejuvenate.
Hydrate your body–opt for water when possible.
Commit to moving your body several times a week.
Be intentional about seeking out and adopting effective and healthy stress-relieving outlets. Whether alone or with others, take time to decompress and invite balance into your daily living.
