automaton |ôˈtämətən, -ˌtän|
noun (pl. automata |-tə| or automatons)
a moving mechanical device made in imitation of a human being.
You wake up and head to the kitchen to make coffee, moan and groan and start doing the same thing day after day after day. When was the last time you changed your routine?
When a student comes in stressed and I ask if they’d like to share anything, it’s usually that they are bogged down doing the same thing and they feel pressured and behind schedule. The stress compounds when they can’t seem to find time for their music. Just a little change in your daily routine may jump start you in a positive direction.
Starting tomorrow morning, instead of shuffling into the kitchen, go outside and do 10 jumping jacks. Crazy? Maybe. But I promise you’ll either laugh or curse and that will be a good start to changing your routine. Maybe you’ll write a song about it!
