MfS - Exploring difficulties - Week 6
Practice for 10 minutes every day with a mind to helping deal with the performance nerves (or your own life’s difficulties, if you like ) this week.
Exploring the Difficulties MP3
Keep up your informal practices and try to do at least one a day.
• Mindful Walking
• Mindful Eating
• Be aware of some repetitive task (showering, cleaning etc)
• Be aware of tasks being pleasant, unpleasant or neutral: How does this affect your body?
Be playful! Be curious! Be inquisitive! Be aware.
Prepare a short song (no more than 5 mins) to sing unaccompanied next week. Explore nerves and get creative with performance!
• Nerves: Are they physical/mental or both?
• Accept them
• Name them and place them
• Breathing into the physical sensations
• Bring back focus to breathing
• Creativity: Be mindful in singing practice
• Find 4-5 ways of singing your song
• Be creative, playful, have fun!
