Travel Whiplash

I’ve been back home for 2 days and I have just like, been so so so tired. I’m hoping it’ll go away soon, but it’s just so strange: it hit me so suddenly! I was fine while traveling, voice, body, brain all ok. But as soon as I get home, I crash. Wake up the next day and throat is all scratchy and icky and I try to sing and bleeeh it just does not turn out good. So I figured the day after traveling was no big deal, on Thursday, it’ll be fine! But nope – my throat still feels icky, and I have been trying all of the remedies and stuff I know to fix it. I decided to just practice today (I didn’t yesterday) and see if that helped me get back into the singing groove, and it did in a way – my throat felt less tense and strained mid-way through practice, so I’m hoping tomorrow it’ll be ok. After singing, I had some of my vocal tea and that helped a little too.

I was planning to do a certain cover for Halloween, but I think if that doesn’t work out tonight or tomorrow, I’ll release a track I’ve been working on that’s more on the eerie side. That is, if I get the demos for it done lol. I just want this post travel funk to go away, I really don’t like it!

Do you have any tips for getting out of a meh phase after a long trip away from home? I’d love any advice I can get!
