Protecting the source of anything is very important because that’s the only way you can always access the things that matter to you. The mind is the source of creativity. As we seek inspiration to tell great stories, it is important we nurture and protect our mind at all times.
Meditation rejuvenates the mind and leaves you full of life. It is the act of getting yourself to true consciousness by sharpening your attention level, stimulating your mood, and strengthening your body. Meditating has been proven to offer numerous physical and psychological benefits to the body; from improving the immune system to reducing stress levels.
The acting career is one that engages both the mind and body; getting both of them intact and fit for every role is crucial to your consistent success on the job. Meditation offers the complete solution to putting yourself in the right frame physically and mentally. As an actor, here are the following reasons you should consider meditation:
Meditation improves memory
As an actor, you need to constantly remember your lines and character and that is where Meditation comes in handy. A good work of Meditation will help you in effectively assimilating and remembering the fine details that concern you in the role.
Meditation reduces stress
Medical statistics have proven that Meditation reduces the production of Cortisol, a stress hormone that is secreted from adrenaline whenever there is a conflict. As you spend the endless hours getting into character, taking an hour or two to meditate will make you less tired and better fit for the hours on set.
Meditation removes fear
Fear is a major demon every actor has to face especially when you have that major role that you really don’t want to flop. To beat this fear, you need to put your mind in focus, figure out the task at hand, and reassure yourself of perfecting the character and wowing your director. All of these processes can be achieved through Meditation.
Why we take Meditation seriously at DCA
We believe a sound mind will make for a creative mind. As we teach our students to be more creative through our curriculum, we also instill the character and virtues that they must inculcate to be better skilled in their art. Meditation is one of the many practical exercises we do at DCA in order to relieve our students of the pressures of back-to-back classes and show them how to cope with being stressed on set.
