Are you succeeding or failing at work-life balance? Give a few interesting details and we may get in touch for an interview and a profile of you.

We get what to do when we’re physically tired, but when we’re mentally tired it’s a different thing. Mental energy can be reinvigorated by falling back in love with your work. Once you fall back in love with your work something sparks about why you’re doing what you’re doing. This is important to notice because mental fatigue can stop you from doing your work.

Tapping Into Our Creativity

courage+2There are key elements we can use to manage our creativity. It is important to schedule just for artistic endeavors. Our creative area of interest needs artistic space so we must set it up. Creative escapes WITH our work are important. We want to learn to be conspicuous! We want to learn to be conspicuous because we don’t want to be self-conscious about our identity. We want to be strong about who we are, and the idea is to fight the cultural restrictions we experience: cultural self-censorship, and artistic self-censorship. Be careful of self censoring, both individual, psychological, and cultural self censorship.
