What do you do when your mind is going a million miles a minute at auditions?
In this week's #MindfulMonday, I share a very quick, subtle practice that you can use to let go of the chatter in your head, and re-focus on the task at hand.
This practice uses a sensory anchor to ground you back to the present. You might remember from previous #MindfulMonday's that an anchor is anything that brings you back to the present, and a sensory anchor like this one uses touch as that grounding agent.
I love using this at auditions because I often find that just taking deep breaths at auditions doesn't always center me in the way that I would like. Something about the physical sensation between my fingers works really well for me when my mind is in an energized, more stressful state.
I also love this because of how subtle it is. I don't have to jump into Downward Dog right before I head on stage -- I can simply move my fingers and quickly bring myself back to the present, before I head out and nail that audition. :)
Do you have any burning questions about roadblocks in your creativity? Let me know in the comments below, and I might feature that topic in a future video.
