Life has been pretty busy lately. Between balancing work and family, taking care of myself has taken effort. It’s important however to be kind and care for yourself. One way I do that is by taking even a bit of time to create. Why is this important?
Have you ever been on a plane and gone through the emergency instructions. As an adult, you’re instructed to put on your own oxygen before helping others. It’s true with self-care. You’ve got to take care of yourself in order to take care of others.
Even though things have been so busy, and at one time, a little under the weather, I have had small pockets of time to create. I’ve taken advantage of them. I’ll work on a page, do a little and step away. I’ll continue when I have another pocket of time. This practice I believe is called self-care. It helps me relax, helps me to re-focus, and gives me a little respite from busyness.
I want to encourage you to do the same. Try and make it a daily practice. Maybe it’s a pocket of time to create with your Gel Press plate, sewing, journaling, sitting and having a quiet cup of tea, or doing a crossword puzzle. Recently, the below has been some of the outcome of my pockets of time.
Warmest creative wishes,
