First, happy new year! It’s a new year unlike any other and let’s hope it stays that way.
If you’re like me and find it next to impossible to be motivated to start practicing again after a nice, long break away from the flute, I offer you this video. It’s only 20 minutes and the best gift to give yourself when you’re feeling overwhelmed is to show up to do the work. It doesn’t have to be good work- it can be really kind of shitty work. But you have to do something.
And you don’t have to practice any more than this today if you don’t want to. If it kickstarts some more practice, then that’s great. Otherwise, just try to show up the next day. Good luck and let me know how it goes. -Carmen
