Don’t make anything.
Put down that iPhone camera.
At least that’s what I’ve found myself doing this week.
As soon as I find myself in a contant information consumption mode, I know it has been too long between breaks. The creator becomes the consumed. Instead of seeing the world, you’re just looking at the world. Through a screen. It’s definitely time to put down the tools and just hang out.
I love the tools. I love creating. But if I don’t stop “being creative” sometimes, creativity simply stops. Term two was a looong school term and life was extraordinary with positive twists and turns. Now, I’m enjoying a little break at home with the kids.
Do you take regular breaks to regain your creative focus? What works for you?
