While I think there is definitely overlap between my creativity and my work, my creativity is not just about my work. It also encompasses many other aspects of my life that have nothing to do with making a living. I am also channeling creative energy when I am putting together an amazing outfit, cooking a meal, deciding how to spend the hours of my day, journaling, healing, hanging out with friends, traveling, and so on. People are exercising creativity when they are raising a family, teaching a classroom, community organising, informing the culture of their work spaces, home spaces, relationships, and dreaming of a better collective future for this earth. These days, I define creativity for myself as any time you consciously disrupt existing old patterns with new ones as a co-creation with the forces of the universe. As for self-care tips for creative professionals and any creative human, I cannot recommend enough a daily meditation practice and doing morning pages, a practice coined by artist Julia Cameron in her book The Artist’s Way, which is writing three pages of stream-of-consciousness writing in a notebook every day to clear your mind. Also, nurture your ecosystem of support and take good care of your body.
