Declutter Your Creativity

When you feel fear, you are on the threshold of something great. When you step through fear, there is always love on the other side. - Shaa Wasmund

How do you keep your creative brain decluttered when your life is madness? 

How do you stay on task and productive when you're constantly on the move?

These are all questions I have always struggled with, but with our recent move to Europe my creative brain has felt even more dismantled. In an interesting way, I have looked at it like a challenge to dig deeper into my creative purpose. Instead of continuing to run around in 50 directions, what would it look like to jog steadily in one? 

I think we all can agree we would eventually get where we wanted a little sooner if we stayed on course, but staying focused with full creative tanks requires effort. 

Here are a few new things I have been trying to keep my body and creative soul clear and on track:

  1. A Green Drink: I love Amazing Grass products. I now crave it and it totally fuels my mornings. If you're not in the habit of downing greens in the mornings - try it! It has changed my world.
  2. Do Less, Get More: My new read from Shaa Wasmund. I made it a new goal to read 5-10 mins in the morning to help me set an intention for the day. She has so many good snippets of inspiration and I write down the ones I can carry through my day. 
  3. One Girl Band: New podcast that fellow photographer, Anna Purna recommended and I love it so far! It is geared toward women entrepreneurs and so far I love the advice she gives on honesty and staying productive.
  4. Coffee Shop Life: I am always surprised how escaping the physical clutter helps clear my creative juices.
