    Creative Kickstart #3 - Creative Visualization Exercise

    Creative Kickstart #3 - Creative Visualization Exercise

    Today, for our third installment of the Creative Kickstart Challenge, we are braving new territories! I have created a creative visualization exercise that will help you SEE what your creativity looks like - as a living, breathing force of life. We will meet and explore our creativity's galaxy where it lives, grows, expands, gathers energy and ideas. Then I'm going to encourage you to put that vision onto paper - you won't get it perfect, but this will give you a visual reminder of the life force of your creativity and inspire you to keep exploring its energy each day. For this episode, you need to be in a quiet space where you can close your eyes for about 15 minutes and have a notebook with you to jot down your vision as quickly as possible. Please share your creative galaxy with me by tagging me @laurenlikesblog and using the hashtag #howshecreatescreativekickstart

    Prompts to reflect on 2019 and envision 2020 while honoring your values & heart ep 331

    Prompts to reflect on 2019 and envision 2020 while honoring your values & heart ep 331

    Are you tired of playing the numbers games when it comes to setting BIG goals and then feeling a BIG letdown on January 3rd when you're already behind? Me too. 2019 was a year full of BIG things for me, job changes, big life decisions, new puppy, lots of heartaches and personal growth. This year, instead of making a list of numbers and accomplishments, I did some deeper, slower reflecting on what 2019 looked like for me. From assessing how I honored my values to what feelings I felt and creating art that represented it all, I compiled a list of journaling prompts to help you reflect on your year in a more holistic way and then a way to do the same to set 2020 up with more intention and heart. Listen in as I share how I approached these prompts and will guide you through them for yourself. I suggest listening to this episode as you have about an hour or more to journal, reflect and drink a glass of tea.

    See all the prompts here:

    Mental Health & Creativity: Friend or Foe?

    Mental Health & Creativity: Friend or Foe?

    Shayna Norwood is changing the conversation around mental health + creativity and is creating a way for you to take control of your personal mental health. In this episode she shares her story of how creativity and mental health go hand in hand for her, being a friend and a foe in her creative process. She shares how we can be more aware of when we are going too far down a path that leads to an unhealthy place for us and how we can turn back towards a place of creative joy instead of overwhelm and struggle. Shayna also shares tips for helping support others in our life who are going through a difficult time and how her mental health trackers are a simple way to gather the data you need to start recognizing your own patterns and emotions.
