Srunchy-face in full-swing cause you can’t focus on your computer any longer.
Coffee – not doing the trick – wow.
Diet Mountain Dew – not doing the trick – double wow.
So, it’s time to pull out the big guns and do the one thing that will work. A series of booty clenches.
I have a great friend, Darla, who is on opera singer. Spent years in Europe (Germany, Italy, etc.) singing her heart out. She is definitely world-class. And a great voice teacher (mine in fact). Her husband, Paul, is world-class too. Juliard grad. Fantastic voice professor and choir director and organist.
Year’s ago I would get invited by Paul to sing High Holy Day’s services with a kickin’ choir. Essentially we sang services for 3 days. That’s a lot of singing and a lot of sitting throughout sermons, prayers, etc. Enough sitting, in fact, to make one want to grab a little shut-eye before the next song.
But that cannot happen. Shut-eye sorta gets your voice “un” warmed up. So Darla gave me the trick that opera singers do if they have to wait hours between scenes: Clinch your booty over and over and over again.
It works at work too. Most don’t even know you are doing it. Don’t be afraid. I know you will act like you aren’t going to try it, but I know you will.
Maybe someone will add booty clenches to their gamified wellness app. Hmmmmm.
