Easter: The 2nd Busiest Holiday for Musicians

It's Easter week (depending on your faith-practice you may refer to it as something else, like "Holy Week"). Outside of the Christmas season this is busiest holiday for many musicians and vocalists out there. I don't think I need to list all the 'holy' days that Christian/Catholic faiths contain, because if-you-know, you-know.

Late night rehearsals, extra hours practicing, early mornings. Whether you're a singer or an instrumentalist, they all take a toll. How can we stay health during this season?

  • First and foremost, if you can, make sure you're getting 7-8 hours of sleep

  • Second, stay hydrated. It takes at minimum 2-3 hours for your body to get hydrated (that's from the time of consistent water intake). Continuous hydration is ideal.

  • Eat foods that are going to fuel your body, not give you a sugar boost followed by a crash.

  • Stay away from mucus & acid producing foods and drinks.

  • Find a way to incorporate self-care (yoga, a walk, a nap, reading a book, etc)

Make sure to incorporate a day (or a few hours) of rest once the dust has settled, to give your body and mind a chance to be refreshed.

Happy music making to you all, and see you on the other side!
