Stop Being Creative

Stop.

Don’t make anything.

Put down that iPhone camera.

Just be.

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?

      Hi Laney. For some reason I didn’t see your comment until just now, sorry. So glad that the timing of this post was right for you. I think Instagram going offline because of server issues was one of the best things for me. I realised I was spending too much time looking at stuff that wasn’t making me any more effective – creatively or productively. I’ll take more photos again soon though :)
