Podcast: Staying Creatively Supercharged

by | The Accidental Creative

Many people go crashing into the weekend like a running back diving into the end zone. They have thoroughly spent themselves during the work week, so the weekends are their time to completely disconnect, and engage in mindless activities like watching TV, playing video games, or working out.

However, weekends are not only a great time to rest, but also to recreate (as in “re-create” yourself, and to regain your focus and enthusiasm for your life and work.) By instilling a few simple checkpoints, or rituals, in your weekend, you can spark your creative juices and ensure that you’re clear-headed and focused heading into your next week.
