Heya, It's Kim and this is an intervention!
What if I told you that you don't need to exist in a constant state of anxiety, burnout or "stress"? That's right, whatever your chosen adjective; contrary to popular belief; it isn't "just a part of life", you do have better options!
I developed the Bandbox Creative Community as a place to share my own Creative Outlets and their benefits with others because I've noticed that many people struggle to identify the need to replenish, decompress or unwind and others just don't know where to start.
A creative outlet is essentially something you do that helps you to focus and express your creative energy, emotions, and thoughts. I chose art, and I'm a firm believer that fundamentally everyone has an inner artist!
I know, stopping or even slowing down to do anything that doesn't offer a monetary return can feel so taboo in such a noisy world, where your success is measured by how busy you are and every algorithm punishes you for taking time off.
I hear you, believe me! As a business owner; wearing most of the hats myself; a wife, a mom, a friend, a daughter, a sister and many times a counsellor; I often find myself depleted and in need of a retreat.
Just like regular exercise and a gym membership to keep our bodies in shape, keeping our minds in shape is just as, if not even more, important.
All that being said, I look forward to meeting you in the Bandbox Creative Community, it's free to join but you can subscribe to the Artourage to explore your Creative side with access to more exclusive content! Come have some fun, connect with friends, just be yourself and let's get creative!
