When touring frequently, it’s super important to do your best to stay healthy. Alcohol lowers your immune system. So even though it’s tempting since many musicians play at bars, try not to drink often. Caffeine should also be kept to a minimum (this is a personal struggle). Get enough sleep. Take vitamins/supplements. Drink PLENTY of water even if you fear frequent potty breaks on the road. Fortunately, I haven’t been sick in nearly 9 months. When I start to feel achy or sinus pressure, I make sure to get plenty of rest and use a neti pot. Make sure you listen to your body! #netipot #vitamins #supplements #tourlife #musician #health #aromatherapy #sleep #juiceplus #tourtips #roadtrip #band #alcohol #caffeine
something i think about a lot is how my life would be if i wasn’t mentally ill. if, at age 8, i didn’t start having hallucinations. if there wasn’t crippling anxiety or coma inducing depression or uncontrollable and unexplainable mood swings.
