PSA: The Importance of Staying Creative

During this prolonged moment of slowing down and staying in, finding ways to stay productive and creative has been our go-to. Like you, we're used to the "always on" pace of modern life, to our multi-hyphenated jobs, but we’ve also had to hit pause.

Though it might seem like culture has been shutting down, we have discovered that it has opened up in unprecedented ways, as all industries are looking to bring together creative communities in virtual and remote ways. Here are 5 ways we’re staying creative, and be sure to share yours in the comments below!

1. Remember to Make Something Everyday

Keep your hands and your mind busy by going old school. Put down the digital world for an hour or two and craft something handmade.

2. Tap Into Tutorials

Online classes are being offered more and more as creatives take to the internet. From universities to this Middle School teacher's viral videos, try learning something you’ve always wanted to do but never had time for.

3. Visit A Museum, Listen to a Concert

We know, it’s not the same as seeing magnificent artworks in person, but museums and galleries have gone virtual with their spring exhibitions. You can even livestream concerts, like the Met Opera season or Chrissy Teigen and John Legend's #TogetherAtHome showstopper on IGTV.

4. Read A Book by a Leader You Admire

Is there a girlboss or entrepreneur you admire who has put pen to paper recently? Pick up a biography by a business leader who will inspire your own career path. We're loving former Vogue editor Elaine Welteroth's book More Than Enough: Claiming Space for Who You Are (No Matter What They Say).

5. Stay Connected

That’s right, Zoom is the new Facebook. Listen in to exciting panels, virtual conferences, and strategize on how to take your business, career, or freelance life to the next step! Or just catch up with coworkers or friends over a cup for virtual coffee.
