This post is inspired by Leonard Bronik, a very dear friend, who lovingly shares his wisdom of 70+ years. 1. Act in every moment, and each moment thereafter in awareness of nourishing your "self". 2. Execute every action purposefully. Actions, like musical notes, become the music. 3. As singers, we must take care of ourselves by mindfully choosing nourishing actions, just as athletes nourish their bodies to perform at peak level. We too are athletes. We must have discipline to empower our inner voices to have the confidence to follow our dreams. For example we can choose the following: Get plenty of sleep, preferably eight hours. Drinking plenty of water. Surround ourselves with loving, positive friends, and family. Avoid toxic situations and people, just like you avoid junk food and cigarettes. Savor every moment of every day. Be grateful for every breath you take. Look at each action you take at nourishing yourself each and every moment, and thereafter. As a result, you'll go out and sing your best! Ask yourself: How am I nourishing (your name)? What actions does (your name) choose to take right now that is nourishing? It's not just the thought, it's the action that counts. About Julie Brown Voice Studio The Julie Brown Voice Studio is an internationally acclaimed salon located in Austin, Texas, U.S.A.
