"Aubrey Atwater with Habits for Your Healthy Music Habitat.
When you present for others, when you perform, or when you plan to join a jam session, its nice to spend as much time as you can, or want to spend, preparing well for whatever it is you're going to do musically:
Learning those tunes and songs,
Developing your repertoire
Spending time alone
Spending time with others,
...any kind of preparation that makes your experience say, at a jam session, or at some kind of presentation or performance, more enjoyable for you, more fun in general.
So preparation is a great way to take care of yourself."
