I have noticed that my environment affect what I’m doing to a much larger degree than I would have thought, and that I can deliberately “manipulate” myself into a certain behaviour by moving things around. It could be something as simple as making sure the charger for my PlayStation controllers is placed outside of my reach from the couch, while moving the guitar closer. That is all it takes for me to play the guitar instead of video games when I feel lazy and just want to kill some time.
Anyways, around Christmas we decided to give our music room an overhaul (it is close to finally being done now!). We spent quite some time thinking of what we liked about our old room, and what we could change to “nudge” us in the direction of being more creative/productive. So just out of curiousity, are your surroundings important for you when when you work on music?
