Musician Adriana Balic shares the most important mindset and self-care lessons she learned while on tour with P!NK’s Beautiful Trauma World Tour.

Musician Adriana Balic joins us today to talk about what she learned about self-care while on tour with P!NK in her Beautiful Trauma World Tour, her core philosophy when it comes to being a creative, happy person, and the surprising turns her journey as an artist has taken.

Adriana toured with P!NK previously in 2003, but left in 2008 when she became pregnant so she could be present for her son's formative years. Then, in 2017, circumstances aligned for her to return to working with P!NK.

“This experience of being out on the road as a mother, a wife, and having been at home for nine years previous to that, it was such a different experience,” she says. “It has done a lot of things for me personally, one—given me the space to focus on me again.”

Part of what’s challenging about self-care, she says, is making a mindset shift. While on tour, her job was to get up on stage at the end of the day and give her all during the performance. But in order to support that effort at the end of the day, she had to lay the foundation at the beginning of the day—starting with sleep, getting enough exercise, drinking a lot of water, and scheduling downtime.

“Knowing that doing nothing is actually doing something… it’s taken me a long time to get to that place to acknowledge that it’s important,” she says.
