In this episode, I talk about the importance of taking a creative day. This is something that I’ve done in the past that’s not always easy. We spend so much of our time trying to respond to emails, get groceries done, do schoolwork, and succeed in jobs. And taking a day off from all of that sometimes gives us the idea that we are taking a step back.
But, what I’ve learned is that we’re actually taking a step “back” to take two steps forward. By having this free day, we are able to improve our attention spans because we have more time to focus on the things that we are passionate about instead of jumping from tab to tab and constantly living in the future while in the present.
In taking this day off where you don’t do anything with a deadline and focus on “feeding the soul” to be corny, it allows you to come back better when you do need to hit those deadlines. If you’re someone who has felt exhausted and is sacrificing all of the things they love and want for the things they feel obligated to do based on society, give this one a listen!
