Caring for my creativity goes hand in hand with my wellbeing, which makes it even more important. A rested heart, a rested mind and a rested body is my recepie for wellbeing and below are my three tips on how to stay creative and at the same time take care of your wellbeing by clearing your head.
1. Walk slowly. I have always been very fast phased and people often tell me to wait up. Today I once again noticed that I rushed up a pair of stairs and I had to stop myself and try out what it would feel like to walk slowly - and it felt great! Suddenly I got some extra time to clear my head, to catch up with my thoughts and to actually see and feel the surroundings (the pretty ceiling and the art deco details for example).
2. When you are ready to rush out from your apartment - sit down for five minutes. I often rush through my morning routines or any other routines before going out but it makes a big difference if a give myself a short break once in a while. A new routine that I has tried out for a while is sitting down on the sofa just before heading out the door. It might sound funny but I have actually sat down a few times with my shoes and my coat on - giving myself an opportunity to catch up with myself. This tactic is pure magic! In a few minutes I enable myself to get a wider perspective on what I feel like, what I am about to do and what I should get prepared for. By doing this I enable myself to take on whatever follows with a much more relaxed mind, a clear head and an energized body.
3. Catch your favorite moments and make them look like you. What do you like? It is possible to surround you with more of this? I like my mornings slow and like them spent in a beautiful surrounding. This means that I should try to get to sleep a little bit earlier in the evening in order to save myself an extra hour in the morning. This hour I would spend preparing myself some breakfast served on my favourite china accompanied by fresh flowers, a podcast or even a brand new magazine straight from the store shelf (bought half an hour eralier when walking my dog). And tea - there is nothing that calms me down the same way that tea does.
What would a favorite moment of yours look like? One that makes you more creative and clears your head at the same time.
Let your creativity bloom! ❤️
