Backpacks are filled, pencils are sharpened, and coffee is copiously consumed – that can only mean one thing…
It’s time for another school year to begin! I hope everyone is settling nicely into their back to school routines. With so many new classes to take, people to meet, and subjects to learn, it’s easy to get caught up in the excitement of another academic year.
It’s also just as easy to succumb to the stress and anxiety of exams, juries, recitals, auditions, jobs, and other real-world stresses. Mental health is always an important subject, but especially at the beginning of school when emotions run high. I’ve shared some mental health tips for artists and musicians, but I thought it would be helpful to create a 30-day self care challenge specifically for musicians to help ease the transition into the rigors of a demanding school year.
Feel free to complete and repeat this self care challenge as necessary. You can also share with other musicians who need to add some more self care into their routine!
Good luck and happy practicing!
