One of the hardest things I have found maintaining is my personal creativity and passion projects outside of work. As a creative you are constantly on at work, thinking up new innovative design, solutions, and ideas. It’s been hard for me to find the balance of work and personal. When I was younger I feel like I felt a lot my ambitious and worked tirelessly in every facet. But even the day to day life of adulthood feels overwhelming. I’ve been trying a new tactic of using a journal to plan out my day and make sure I find room for myself. Even if it is just institutionalizing 15 minutes of Pintersting a day. I was thinking the other night about how I wish I knew more about self care and mindfulness when I was younger. It’s inherently important when our culture is so demanding to work hard, make money, grow up. There is something to be said about keeping some of that wonder and childhood naiveté. I’m hoping my challenge to make time for myself sparks that instinct back up. Has anyone else had any experience combating burnout?
