This is an episode that I would really like you to listen closely.


Being an electrician for almost 10 years, I was surrounded by a much different work environment in terms of how to look after your body and keep yourself safe.

The word “safe” I am meaning to prevent injuries, and allow you to stay as productive as possible, while not noticing any downsides such as pain from overworking your body.

Within the studio environment, I have realized over the past couple years there are some main things you really want to look at to help keep your body at its peak performance. Some of these things require a larger purchase, but I talked about these things because I’ve tried to cheap out myself over the last 10 years.

What kind of things are we talking about in this episode?

Well, mainly our eyes, ears, backs, and being aware of bad posture and continual movements that encourage pain.

You will have to listen to the episode to hear many of the things I’ve learned, which I’m hoping will help you prevent the same things that have happened to me.

One thing I wanted to share with you though was a picture of my new ergonomic chair, as I told you, I tried about 6-7 different chairs over time.. that I’d switch out when I’d notice some type of pain. This approach worked fine for awhile as it balanced out the different pain points, until finally, the pain was just too much.

This is an ergonomic chair, by the brand Steelcase, and it’s their Leap V2. You can see it on amazon (affiliate link).

Questions About Beatmaking with FL Studio?

Alright, so I hope you enjoy the episode above, and that it prevents you from making the same actions I’ve done.

There’s times to pay a little more for quality, and there’s times to cheap out. When cheaping out starts to hurt you physically, it’s time to take a more serious look at what the issue is.

As mentioned I share, make sure you have a plan while being on a computer to be productive, and reduce screen time.

And as always, you can join my music producer training platform to learn FL Studio!
