Self-Care for Singers: How to Protect Your Greatest Asset
Tuesday 16th January 2024, 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM (London Time)
In this session, participants will learn a science-backed holistic approach to self-care for singers. As singers, a sustainable approach to the health of our voices invariably involves taking care of our bodies as a whole, including the mental, physical and emotional components. Self-care is easily sacrificed, and it may even be positioned as a selfish or indulgent luxury, however self-care is imperative, especially when our lives become busy and stressful.
During the course of the session, we will consider how self-care is central to the business of being a singer, and examine how a daily self-care routine enables us to protect, preserve and optimise our voices, while improving our overall energy levels, focus, creativity and performance outcomes.
The session will cover the following key areas, showing how they can be applied in the context of a daily self-care practice:
• Mindfulness - Taking time out for self-reflection and gratitude
• Exercise - Scheduling regular physical activity
• Diet - Fuelling your body with nourishing food
• Sleep - A time to recharge, reinvigorate and replenish
• Boundaries - Learning to listen to your body/mind
• Alignment - Living a congruent life
