Is stress killing your focus & creativity? Try this.

Do you ever feel like stress and anxiety are overtaking your life? Peace, focus and creativity are slipping away and it feels like you’re your days are just about ticking off the never-ending to-do list?    

Welcome to the club.

I’m currently a woman on a mission, and that mission is to bring back more focus, creativity and calm into my life. 

Here are some of the things I’ve tried so far: 

  • Lying on the bed and doing nothing else but listening to the music (I don’t think I’ve done that since I was a teenager);
  • Leaving my phone at home, going to the park, sitting on the grass and watching people (amazing how many ideas I can come up with!);
  • Eating the whole tub of salted caramel Häagen-Dazs instead of dinner just because I really felt like it; 
  • Deleting the junk data from my laptop; The satisfaction of looking at the uncluttered desktop – priceless;
  • Watching the whole second season of Big Little Lies in one day and not feeling bad about it (also confirming that we don’t deserve the genius that is Meryl Streep);
  • Staying away from my phone as much as possible – that’s the hardest but also the most rewarding thing I’ve tried in order to regain my focus; 
  • Stopped fooling myself that I’m good at multitasking.
