    How to Nurture Your Creativity Find Inspiration with Cristina Martinez

    This week we’re continuing our exploration of the intersection of wellness and creativity. According to research, creative expression can support feelings of motivation and overall well-being. However, many people have aversions to creativity due to bias, perfectionism, and fear of failure or not creating a perfect result.
    To wrap up our series on New Life and Creativity we’re talking to our guest Cristina Martinez about how she’s found healing through creativity, and how creativity has influenced her career and relationships.
    Cristina Martinez is a contemporary visual artist based in Seattle, Washington. Her career started in fashion school before she explored self-expression through painting. Cristina’s work is rooted in telling the often-overlooked stories of Black and Brown people, encouraging them to water themselves to bloom and grow in this journey called life.
    This conversation inspires us all to tap into our creativity for healing, and a deeper connection to our loved ones and ourselves.
    We Also Talk About…
    How our relationship with creativity can evolve over time.Ways to draw inspiration when you need it most.The ups and downs of having a creative career.How Cristina supports her kids’ creativity.The ways creativity can help us bloom, and what it means to bloom.How collaboration and community can foster creativity.

To discuss these shifts, I’m sitting down with Dr. Veronica Eyo, a licensed therapist who specializes in supporting moms of color, and Rosalyn Davis, a community builder, breathwork practitioner, and new mom.

    This episode is full of honest takes about what the transition into motherhood can feel like, how new and seasoned mothers can reconnect with themselves, and how we can all reparent ourselves.

New episode drops are the highlight of my week

BBG has become part of my weekly ritual and I love it! The conversations are accessible, timely and SO relevant. I always walk away feeling lighter and find myself thinking about how I’ll apply what I learned to my life. Les is also a really gifted interviewer and beautiful presence to witness. It’s been amazing to watch her grow alongside the podcast. It’s clear that she chooses the themes and guests with intention and she gives them plenty of space to share. All of the conversations feel like a casual coffee date with likeminded people. Thank you for making my hot girl walks even better! 👏🏾👏🏾

A Safe Space that’s Relatable to Me!

I found this podcast last summer and was determined to go back to the beginning and catch up on all of the shows. Listening to each one and realizing that I’m not alone and what I’m going through, in fact it’s normal to feel emotional and vulnerable, yet have dignity and set healthy boundaries within all of my relationships and not feel any type of way about it! Thank you for allowing me to be apart of this journey and keep inspiring all of us!
