What to Do When Practicing Starts to Feel Like Checking Off the Boxes: Come Alive Instead!

Does practicing feel like you're just going through the motions, checking off the boxes so you can get on to the next thing? Or playing a gig? Or teaching or taking a lesson?

This experience is so common, and yet it stands in contrast to the part of you that just knows that music, dance, and the arts in general are about coming more *alive* and sharing that aliveness with others

I share my insights into the origins of the tendency to just go through the motions and share my best tips for how to address it so you can feel more alive while you engage in your creative activities. Your art and your audiences will both benefit from this, too!
