How letting go of being productive with my time made space for creativity
I love the framing as a hierarchy of needs. Resonates with my experience.
I loved this article! I don’t have kids (yet), but I find it very relatable. One of the biggest lessons that I’ve been trying to apply post my burnout experience is exactly making this space that you’re talking about: for self expression, for play, and for simply not letting myself be exhausted.
I feel this. My work has always been creative and in creative industries. Trying to find time to be creative in a DIFFERENT way--a way that knocks my brain out of work mode--is so hard these days. That is directly related to stress and/or exhaustion. Loved reading this.
