As a musician, prioritising well-being is paramount for success and fulfillment long-term. Good mental health serves as the foundation for creativity, productivity, and overall satisfaction. Sometimes we may also encounter situations which are made stressful by others; so it’s also crucial to address and confront issues such as bullying or harassment head-on, whether it occurs within the industry or elsewhere. Seeking support from trusted friends, family, or professionals can provide invaluable assistance in navigating such challenges. Additionally, managing performance anxiety is a common hurdle for many musicians. Techniques like mindfulness, deep breathing exercises, and visualisation can help alleviate nerves before performances.
