It’s important for me as a creative to make sure I’m consuming good quality creations… not just a mindless scroll of blabbering.

Here’s my scrapbook of all the things that have fed my eyes, heart, brain & soul over the last few months. I usually collect all the things that inspire me in my art journal… consider this my digital version!

Filled with things I’ve read, things I’ve beauty, things I’ve watched…

Get yourself a big ole cup of tea… this is a long one!

I love seeing creators take time away to re-centre and re-fuel themselves. I’ve taken quite a few myself, and they are a good prescription for preventing (or healing) burnout.

“Do not be afraid to disappear, from it, from us, for a while and see what comes to you in the silence.” – Michaela Coel  

And because I seem to collect articles about fucking off social media, here’s a wee list of them:

“It sends chills down my spine to watch others build businesses on Instagram and TikTok”

“It didn’t take much self-reflection for Weiss to identify the problem: his phone. He recognized that he increasingly colonized his “quiet time” with digital distractions. As a result, his work felt “chaotic and disorganized.” Throwing more hours at the problem didn’t help: “I was working more than ever, but getting less done.”
