Your mind is your most precious asset. Your mind is your essence and you need to protect it. Unfortunately, as creatives, we tend to have this nasty tendency to overwork ourselves. And while we don’t set out with this intention, it is something that plagues a lot of us at one point. We get to a point where we have exhausted ourselves because we have spent every moment dedicating ourselves to our passion, which is amazing, but no one can sustain that forever. We have to give ourselves a break and refill our creativity. We have to listen to our bodies and our minds and refill our passion for life. Only when our mind is taken care of will we be able to do our best work.

Your version of nurturing your mind might be completely different from mine, and that is ok

Which is why I believe nurturing our minds needs to be a critical part of our daily life. Now, this can come in many different forms, your version of nurturing your mind might be completely different from mine, and that is ok. So please don’t read on and think that you have to take my advice verbatim. Take some time to think about the things that make you really happy, what things light your soul on fire, what things inspire you, what things make you want to get up and pursue your dreams! Because those are the things that you need to nurture your mind with. But in case you need some help jogging the ol’ brain here is a list of things that may help nurture your mind:

  • Simplify your day
  • Eat a good meal
  • Take some time to journal
  • Notice your thoughts
  • Go out into nature
  • Feel the sunlight
  • Read a good book
  • Drink some tea
  • Curl up on the couch and watch nature
  • Go a whole day without using your phone
  • Stay off social media for a day
  • Go for a jog

Just give it a try. Your mind (and sanity) will thank you.
