An Anxious Year
It’s been an anxious 2020 for the musician. She went from winning four Grammys, performing at the Oscars and the Met Gala and headlining a tour in 2019 to… chilling out at home.
“I think if you struggle with a bit of anxiety—I definitely carry some of that—a way to escape that is to be constantly busy and to work and be on the move all the time,” Musgraves told Harper’s Bazaar this month. “When all of that goes down, you realize, ‘Woah, I’ve got to figure this out.'”
Meanwhile, Musgraves has been working on new material and re-learning self-care.
“One unconventional self-care ritual is just learning how to give myself a break and learning how to be easier on myself,” Musgraves said. “Whether that’s maybe I didn’t work out today like I had intended, maybe I wasn’t as productive today. But I think part of self-care is learning your perimeters and learning that you’re not a machine.”
It hasn’t been easy for the multitasking overachiever to slow down. But in the midst of a pandemic that has largely brought the music industry to a standstill, she had little choice.“In the beginning, whenever my schedule got completely clear for the year, I was like, ‘Oh, my God, this is so weird, how inconvenient,’” she said. “But it’s turned out to be kind of a blessing in disguise for me, because I think that I’ll be able to go out and be busy again and have a better foundation under my feet in a lot of ways.”
