I’m on my first vacation where I’ve let go of generating ideas for my work in a long time. I’ve learned that the best ideas come when you create space, or surrender.
This year has had many new beginnings for me, including learning curves, which means more time and focus.
My message for this post is to find a way to create rest in life. I do this in my morning practice through meditation. I also chunk out my time so that I build in rest after working on projects.
What I’ve noticed through several days of rest, however, is that it takes time for the brain to let go of habitual thinking.
If it has been awhile for you since you’ve had several days – more than three – without working, schedule the time for your own creativity and health.
Cheers to you from Santa Fe, New Mexico.
