Rest and Creativity

Doing what you say, saying what you do

I believe, wholeheartedly, that rest is essential for creativity and for productivity. When I was younger I believed it but didn’t live by it. It was a choice that felt unavailable to me. Then, about a decade ago, I decided to choose and wear the consequences. There were no bad consequences - only good ones. I was more creative, more productive.

Because rest is essential for creativity and productivity!

Then the pandemic happened. I haven’t taken a ‘proper’ break since.

Until this week.

This week I am hiking and resting and, most importantly, not-thinking-about-work.

I know many of you have been living pressured, always-on lives for the last few years.

I hope you can find time to rest and reboot.

Here is a song that always makes me feel on holiday. It’s the muted trumpet…

Yours hopefully,
