Are you a creative soul struggling to balance productivity with self-care?

Don’t worry; you’re not alone!

Our minds often trick us into thinking that productivity equals worthiness, but the truth is, creativity needs space to flourish. So let’s ditch the guilt and focus on nurturing ourselves, because the more we care for ourselves, the more valuable we become. Let’s celebrate our creativity and embrace the beauty of self-care. You’ve got this!

The human mind is a complex entity that can both limit and empower us in various ways. Our beliefs, attitudes, and thoughts shape our experiences, behaviours, and outcomes in life. However, sometimes our minds can hold us back from achieving our full potential or hinder us from living a fulfilling life. One typical example is when we believe we cannot take care of ourselves and support ourselves financially simultaneously.

The idea of productivity is often associated with success and self-worth. We measure our worth based on how productive we are in achieving our goals, completing tasks, or contributing to society. This can create a sense of pressure and stress to constantly be productive, even at the cost of our mental and physical health.

However, it’s essential to recognize that productivity and creativity are not mutually exclusive. In fact, creativity needs space and time to flourish. When we prioritize self-care and give ourselves the space to be creative, we often become more productive in the long run.

As a creative being, it’s essential to focus on the creative aspect of our identity rather than solely on productivity. Creativity is a valuable asset in various aspects of life, including problem-solving, innovation, and self-expression. When we allow ourselves to be creative, we tap into a source of intrinsic motivation and joy that can drive us towards achieving our goals.

Moreover, creativity can help us develop a unique perspective and approach to life. It allows us to think outside the box, challenge the status quo, and explore new possibilities. By embracing our creativity, we can create a life that aligns with our values, passions, and aspirations, rather than conforming to societal norms and expectations.

To support our creativity, we must prioritize self-care and give ourselves the space to be creative. This may involve setting aside dedicated time for creative pursuits, engaging in activities that bring us joy and inspiration, and taking care of our mental and physical health. By doing so, we can create a foundation that supports our creativity and helps us thrive in various aspects of life.

How are you going to prioritise your self-care?

Love. Simone
