Wellness

with Pilar Uribe

A busy voice actor spends a lot of time in the booth. You’re sitting down to edit, sending out auditions, and reaching out to clients, but how are you prioritizing your physical & mental health throughout the work day? Anne & Pilar have the tips and tricks to keep your body strong & your mind sound. From taking breaks throughout the day to stretch, keeping up with your fur babies, and shaking off the stress (literally), you can tackle the day with ease like a #VOBOSS.


In this episode, Anne & Pilar discuss how physical & mental wellness outside the booth informs your auditions, reads, and performances.

"Breathing helps me disconnect from stressful moments and return to the work better than before." - Pilar
