LMT Remembers An Anxious Actor

Leaving a reflexology session, relaxed, enjoying the cool night, I began to think about what an anxious person I was as a young man. An actor in New York City, I compulsively checked my answering service and worried about my next job. Many of these concerns haven’t changed for actors today (except for answering services…although I hear they’re making a comeback), but we know so much more about health and overall wellness.

As a health professional, what would I tell young actors today?

  • Treat yourself well through healthy diet and exercise
  • Take quiet time for yourself, including a meditative practice
  • Study the world, including, literature, history and science
  • Take your craft — but not yourself so much — seriously
  • Never give up

How do YOU keep yourself on course?
