Even before Covid-19 and its lockdowns around the world, there was a growing amount of talk about wellbeing in and around the music industry. The pandemic has only sharpened the sense that as an industry, we could be doing more to protect our mental health.
One example of action being taken comes from distributor Record Union, which is holding an online event on Thursday (10 September) with health organisation Equilibrium.
‘Applied Wellness for the Music Industry’ is free to sign up for, and will include a panel and workshop including experts on personal training, meditation, sleep science and nutrition.
It follows Record Union’s launch of its ‘wellness starter pack’ in March: a collection of videos aimed at helping musicians to stay healthy.
