Safety Tips & Resources
A healthy theatre artist is a productive theatre artist!
It is vital, for both creativity and productivity, that you maintain the following principles:
Rest - We must get enough sleep every night to maintain our wellness.
Eat Well - Healthy food makes healthy bodies, promotes long life, improves memory and cognitive function, and provides the energy we need to reach our peak potential.
Exercise - Daily exercise provides us with access to our fullest physical potential. It also promotes mental health, and improves focus.
Have Fun - In addition to your creative work, artists should pursue personal interests and hobbies outside of the theatre. This prevents us from becoming obsessed with our work, which is never healthy.
