Hello, and welcome to the first installment of my blog. This series is designed to tackle a question that I have experienced firsthand and witnessed with many of my colleagues – “How do I maintain a healthy lifestyle as a musician?”.
Today, I thought we would start with the most prevalent issue that I have witnessed among musicians. I have come into contact with many that have expressed to me that they would like to eat healthy, however it seems like a Herculean task to do so on a fast paced and ever changing schedule. Surely, anyone in the music world knows this problem too well. Between performing engagements, rehearsals, teaching, and classes (if you are a student) there is very little time to choke down a burger from a fast food joint, much less eat a healthy meal. Adding to the problem, many of these engagements are not in the same place and we are constantly driving from one spot to the next. In this installment, I am going to discuss ways that we can navigate these hectic schedules and maintain a healthy eating lifestyle.
