As creative entrepreneurs it is so easy to get sucked into email and social media. But let’s be real, there is a fine line between hustle and burnout. So it’s time to set some boundaries! Now when I have the physical urge to check my phone, I am retraining my mind and body to grab a book or journal instead.
I don’t know about the art program(s) that you attended, but in the ones I went through we didn’t really talk about health and wellness in the studio. I get it, we’re in art school to study art, not physical therapy, but our studio practices influence the longevity of our careers, and I believe that encouraging education about these topics should be a priority.
