"Hi there! Aubrey Atwater here with Habits for Your Healthy Music Habitat.
Taking Care of Yourself.
In our musical lives it can be anything from,
taking care of your voice, if you're a singer,
drinking a lot of water,
or maybe not having dairy right before you sing,
pacing when you eat before you sing,
things like that.
Thinking ahead and planning ahead, if you're going to perform or play for others, have your accessories and your paraphernalia up close to you; like if you need a lozenge, or you need your fingerpicks, or some kind of lip balm, or moisturizer for your hands or any number of things that offer you a kind of security, or comfort or
a sense of well-being when you're playing music is a really nice thing to do for yourself."
