The past few posts have been pre-written and set to publish.
I'm not going to lie about that. I love my 100-day project, it forces me to be creative and build creative habits through creative rituals. However, creative rituals can't be forced, and you definitely need the time and space to re-energize—otherwise, you may find yourself burning out.
Recently, I've been feeling really burnt out. There's never enough time in the day, I can't focus on what needs to get done and it's just overwhelming thinking about just how much needs to get done.
Unplugging and giving yourself time to refuel and recuperate is one of the healthiest things you can do.
I need to practice what I preach more, so here I am, trying to put these blogs out before I take away on a girls trip to NYC for an extended weekend.
Not that NYC is in any way relaxing, but I do always find new energy in that city. Something about it helps me unplug and honestly feel a bit small.
Sometimes it's good to feel small. When you're plugged into the world you feel like you can make such an impact or all eyes are on you, but let's be honest, if you've even read this far, you probably need to close your laptop/mobile device you're reading this on and go do something else.
