How To Make Time For CREATIVITY In Your Crazy Busy Life

The general rule: full schedule = death to creativity.

I know firsthand that our lives can get very busy with school, work, family, travel, and plenty of other distractions. As a creative soul and a planner at heart, I find myself buried deep in my to-do-lists. When the day is finished and nothing creative gets done, no big — we’ll just do something creative tomorrow yay!!

But then it happens again. And again. AND AGAIN. We have 24 hours a day to get stuff done.* Where did time for creativity go???

I hate to break it to you, but you’ve been wasting it.

So, today, we’re breaking down 4 ways you can make time for creativity — even when your schedule is overflowing and you’re running out of to-do-list paper.


*you know, give or take like 9 hours for sleep

#OYW – Planner Tour & Organized Blogging Pt 1

Heyo, everybody!! It’s week number three of #OrganizeYourWorld! Honestly, I didn’t know until yesterday that I was going to be like Susanne Collins and split the last segment up into two parts. But here we are so yeah!

Bloggers (and writers) especially seem to have a hard time with procrastination. School, writing, work, chores… somehow, we continue to push them away until the last possible second. We may not intend to do it, but it always seems to happen. So how do you take back your time?

Weeeellll, part one is all about scheduling your time and posts by using a planner or bullet journal. Yes, folks, today I’ll be introducing you to my baby 2018 Erin Condren Planner. And I’m totally going to be a dork about organizing and planners again! WOHOO!

#OrganizeYourWorld – Tech Organization

It’s post number two of #OrganizeYourWorld!!

design-40

So it appears the first post was a success, no matter how incredibly scatterbrained and rant-y it was! I was really happy to see your reactions; yay for organizing friends 😀

Unfortunately, some of you don’t use desks. And that made me upset, because I want everybody who reads to at least have the opportunity to organize through #OYW. It’s fun! It’s a group activity! (in a way…)

But this week is about something EVERYBODY uses. It’s what you’re using right now to read this. It’s…. technology!!

If you’re a writer, blogger, student, or human being living in 21st century America, it’s safe to say that you’re pretty familiar with technology. But it’s also safe to say that your documents, pictures, and apps are at least a little bit cluttered with everything going on in busy busy LIFE.

Because Life™ is just so considerate.

THANKFULLY you’ve got a girl on your team who’s so crazy about organizing, she made a mini guide for you! Soo… let’s get to it! *jazz hands*
