🎨What are 3 things you do to get into your creative thought space?🎨
I find it really helpful to clear my head with this practice so I can focus on the task at hand, no matter what it is (coffee with a friend, gym time, reading a book). I try to do 10 minutes a day (using Headspace). Just the idea of trying to focus on one thing and nothing else has helped me to accomplish more with my creative projects.
Drawing can be really hard on the body! And if my body isn’t happy I find it difficult to focus creatively so starting my day with alignment stretching also helps to center my thoughts. Putting my body first isn't always easy, but when I do, I definitely notice an improvement in my work life.
Turn off devices/time commitment:
If I REALLY need to focus on my work, I turn off the distractions (phone, email, etc) and tell myself I have a certain amount of time (20 mins, 3 hours, etc) to complete something. I find that if I give myself a certain amount of time I am much more productive and efficient and create better work.
Yay Brittney! Her passion is inspirational making her art that much more beautiful. 😍
