As we enter 2023, it’s the perfect time for actors to make some resolutions that will help them achieve their goals in the new year. Resolutions can help actors stay motivated, set goals, and improve their craft. Whether you’re an experienced actor or just getting started, it’s important to set goals and make a plan to achieve them. Here are some New Year’s resolutions for actors in 2023.
1. Take Acting Classes
Whether you’re an experienced actor or just starting out, taking acting classes is one of the best ways to improve your craft. Taking classes can help you learn new skills, build confidence, and stay motivated.
There are plenty of acting classes available at the Reel Scene in London, so it’s important to do your research and find the right one for you. Look for classes that focus on the type of acting you’re interested in. All of our classes are taught by experienced and DBS-approved instructors.
If you’re not based in London, you can take online classes and join in on Q&A sessions and scene study workshops on our online platform, The Actors Gym.
2. Make Time for Self-Care
It’s important for actors to make time for self-care. Acting can be a physically and emotionally demanding job, and it’s important to make time to rest and recharge. Make sure you’re taking care of your body, mind, and soul by getting enough sleep, eating healthy, and making time for hobbies or activities that make you happy.
3. Network with Other Actors
Networking is an important part of any actor’s career. It’s important to make connections with other actors, directors, and other industry professionals. Networking events are a great way to meet new people and make connections. It’s also a good idea to join online communities and follow industry news to stay up to date with what’s happening.
4. Set Goals
It’s important to set goals for yourself as an actor. Whether it’s to land a certain role, get an agent, or just improve your craft, setting goals can help keep you motivated and on track. Make sure to break down your goals into smaller, more manageable steps.
5. Learn New Skills
Acting is a craft, and it’s important to stay up to date with the latest techniques and trends. Take classes, read books, and watch videos to learn new skills and stay ahead of the game. Learning new skills can also help you stand out from other actors.
6. Stay Positive
The acting industry can be tough and rejections are inevitable. It’s important to stay positive and keep trying. The key is to stay motivated and remember why you got into acting in the first place.
7. Have Fun
Above all else, make sure to have fun. Acting is a lot of hard work, but it can also be incredibly rewarding. Take time to enjoy yourself and have fun with the process.
These are just some of the many New Year’s resolutions for actors in 2023. Making resolutions can help you stay motivated, set goals, and improve your craft. With the right attitude and some hard work, you’ll be sure to have a successful year ahead.
