Back to Basics...

Times are unsettling right now as we all know, it’s not going to be easy. I want to try and keep spirits high so we can get through this together. Don’t get me wrong, I am already slightly stressed with decisions that need to be made, where to be? How to do things? What to do? Just like all of us. So I’ve already started putting things in place to counteract these feelings and I’d love to share them with you.


I am a huge believer that being outside amongst nature is THE best thing to settle your mind, it allows time for you to really work through your thoughts whilst escaping from distractions. I went for a walk today and finally listened to the new Caitlyn Smith album ‘Supernova’ - that hour I was out in the fresh air, honestly made the world of difference. 🌳🍁 Take this time of darkness and uncertainty to appreciate the beauty of the smaller things in life that usually pass us by amidst our busy day-to-day lives and to discover new music or revisit some classic albums. Just be careful to not ruin your favourite boots… 😂🙈

Minimise social media, as a musician this is a hard thing to do, as whilst we can’t be out playing for everyone, this is the only way to connect, but I’ve decided to minimise the endless scrolling, most of us are guilty of, it’s not good for anyone’s mental state to be constantly reading about Corona Virus. Instead read a book, start a new series. I’ve decided to go back to some of my old faves, so I’m re-reading the ‘Harry Potter’ books and re-watching one of my favourite series ‘Once Upon A Time’… 🎶📚

One thing to remember during this situation, is we are literally ALL in this TOGETHER… so let’s talk! Tell me what you’re doing? What you’re reading/watching? How you're feeling? ❤️


Lots of Love,


Shannon xx
