As the coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic continues to rock the music industry, GRAMMY.com reached out to a few musicians to see how they were spending their days indoors. Today, Miami-based pop/R&B upstart Teenear shares her Quarantine Diary. Teenear's latest single "Free" is available to hear now.
[6:30 a.m.] First thing that I do when I wake up is brush my teeth so I can get to the gym on time without my trainer yelling at me!
[9:00 a.m.] As soon as I get back home, I hop on the treadmill to get my cardio out of the way. I've really been trying to make sure I stay active during this time of having to be stuck in the house!
[12:00 p.m.] By this time, I'm hopping out of the shower, my adrenaline has finally gone down, and I'm able to make myself and Acai bowl and write in my journal. I also take this time to hit up my team and figure out what I have to get done for the day.
[2:00 p.m.] I start reading the books that I read daily. One of the books I started reading recently is The 365 Bible, which gives you specific versus on each day, and it reads in chronological order of how all the stories actually went. Another book I’m into is The Purpose Driven Life by Rick Warren. This is one amazing book and I’m so happy my mom blessed me with this read! The last book I’m reading right now is A Singer's Compass that is actually written by my vocal coach Cassandra Claude.
[4:00 p.m.] I’m getting dressed to go outside and shoot some content. Creating content from home has definitely become a huge daily task but I'm grateful for it because now I’m able to find new ways to be creative and showcase my personality to my fans.
[7:00 p.m.] I try to take this time meditate. Throughout this whole pandemic I’ve been trying to get into new things and meditation has played a big role in me figuring out a little bit more about myself and my surroundings. No, I’m not a yoga person yet! I have tried countless classes and it's not for me just yet, but one day I’ll get into it!
[9:00 p.m.] Usually around this time, if I’m not sitting in a corner somewhere in the house singing, I’m most likely in my bathroom trying a new beauty product I just ordered online. The ads have gotten a little too good during this quarantine!
