If You Want to Work On Your Art, Work On Your Life

Chekhov advised, "If you want to work on your art, work on your life". And it’s so true! How can we expect to have a nice creative flow in a messiness of daily routines. At the same time, does it mean that we can’t be creative until our life becomes ideal (if such thing exists at all).

Who feels like their daily tasks and responsibilities often don’t leave space for creative moments? This message is charged with positive creative fluids, so read till the end, and don’t forget to comment afterwards. I promise those creative fluids will fly into your daily schedules too. 🧚‍♀️😘

A couple of simple ideas to balance life, and bring more creativity into daily routines:⠀

🌸Stop over-planing your day: leave some space for unexpected, and avoid constantly looking at unfinished to-do list. You want to feel like a champion at the end of your day, not like a squirrel who keeps running in the same wheel.

🌸Ask what you want: sometimes just a simple cup of hot cacao can make your day brighter.

🌸Listen to your body reaction: we know many answers before we realize them, or form into complete thoughts. It’s called intuition.

🌸Reward yourself: when was last time you celebrated your wins? Aren’t you tired of constantly chasing the next thing?

🌸Morning pages: this was big discovery for me recently! Start your day with 3 pages of free writing, just putting all that worries and "garbage" thoughts on paper without even analyzing them. Free up some space for creative ideas!

🌸Give yourself permission to not be perfect: you need to be yourself, and you need to be happy, and you need to do what you enjoy. But do you need to be perfect? Who even invented such word as "perfect"?

Enjoy life, dance and more creativity! Creative fluids in comments 🙈😁👇
