How Yoga and Meditation Can Improve Your Creative Work

How can you be more creative? That’s the million dollar question for creatives everywhere. It’s tempting to think that a person’s creativity is fixed and unchanging, but that simply isn’t true. Creativity ebbs and flows, comes and goes, halts and grows. And there are definitely things you can do to help build your creativity and […]

Unhealthy Thinking Patterns: Should Statements

One of the unhealthy thinking patterns I struggle with the most (and the one I see many creatives struggle with often) is “should” statements.

Unhealthy Thinking Patterns: All or Nothing

Success or failure. Empty or full. Meaningful or meaningless. We use words like this all the time to describe ourselves, other people, events, ideas, the world around us, and life in general.

There is No Normal

As we’re nearing the end of 2020, something I keep hearing a lot is that people can’t wait for life to get back to “normal.” Of course, there’s part of me that totally understands what they’re saying. COVID-19 has turned our world on its head in a lot of ways, from mask mandates to work-from-home […]

How to Break Through Your Comfort Zone and Try Something New

Creatives are some of the most capable people I know—which is why it always baffles me to realize that many creatives struggle to break out of their comfort zones and try something new.  And yet, I see it over and over again. All too often, creatives—the people who thrive on originality and appreciate breaking the […]
