Ever found yourself struggling to stay present in rehearsal?
Maybe you’ve got a to-do list nagging at you, or maybe you’re wrestling with that voice telling you you’re not good enough. Maybe there’s some rough waves you’re navigating in your personal life.
Sometimes, I want to be present in rehearsal. I want to be able to let go of whatever is in my head, and connect with my partner. But I just can’t seem to get grounded.
Here is a mini-meditation you can try to lovingly bring your mind back to your scene work:
Take a big deep breath, get back in there, and kick some ass.
Be sure to do what you told your body you were going to do -- actually tend to yourself the way that you need when you get home! Journaling, taking a walk, meditating, jumping in the bath...all great ways of tending to arising fear/anxiety/criticisms/negative self-talk.
