Burnout... is not cute. 

After struggling through a tough season, I finally had to identify what about my life could change in order to give me some mental ease.

A stronger life/work balance was clearly necessary. More time to focus on the parts of my life that easily became neglected.

Scheduling time for meditation and self-reflection became crucial for me to feelinge grounded & remain inspired.

02.


Dance was the first form of art I fell in love with. Such a form of catharsis releasing energy and channeling emotions through movement and music.

In the stillness of the pandemic, I finally had the chance to take class in my backyard.



Music has always been an integral part of my creative process——so curating playlists has been another expressive outlet to explore.

03.


I *try* to prioritize spending at least an hour to play, sketch, explore. I try to get up early and spend my morning warming up creatively. Exploring little nuggets of ideas that pop into my head or just doodling. 

Find reasons to try new things or exercise skills you don’t get to use often. I generally don’t have any reason or opportunity to do any web design——so I used this presentation as a means to step outside my comfort zone.
