Creative Self Care


Each of us is a master of unique living – we've worked for years in our field, and we all have passion and creative vision for every project we put our hands on.


Together we learn how to improve our attention to emotional details that impact how we understand. Next, we create a vibrant haven and partner with other creatives to ensure an outstanding life quality.


Introducing a new creative outlet into your daily routine is more important to your health than you think. Creative expression vastly impacts your emotional, psychological, and physical well-being.



We have made mindfulness our habit.

Mindfulness is a mental state achieved by focusing one's awareness on the present moment while calmly acknowledging and accepting one's feelings, thoughts, and bodily sensations.



You have arrived


This is your time and place.

Years of experience have brought me into an unfamiliar place. Will I take action and create a remarkable plan? Why wait? Create!


Blind spot

Sometimes inspiration comes from an observation in a moment, followed by a desire to express with affection; we remember and create. Memories connect these moments and form stories. So one thing leads to another, connecting matter, found objects, and ephemera.

Night & Day


A stressful experience may trigger distressing sleep issues. How does essential sleep reduce stress? What does medical research suggest for improvement? Sleep is crucial in reducing stress, and insufficient or poor-quality sleep can worsen stress.

Essential sleep reduces stress and restores energy: Sleep restores the body's energy levels, making you feel refreshed and less fatigued. This can help reduce stress levels and improve overall mood.

Regulates Emotions: During sleep, the brain processes and consolidates emotional experiences from the day. This can help regulate emotions and reduce stress levels. Low cortisol levels: Cortisol is a stress hormone released during stress. When you get adequate sleep, cortisol levels decrease, which can help reduce stress. Medical research suggests several strategies for improving sleep and reducing stress after a stressful experience.

Here are some of the most effective methods: Stick to a regular sleep schedule: Going to bed and waking up at the same time every day can help regulate your body's internal clock and improve the quality of your sleep.

Create a relaxing sleep environment: Make sure your bedroom is dark, quiet, and relaxed. Use comfortable bedding and a white noise machine to block out distracting noises.

Practice Relaxation Techniques: Deep breathing, meditation, and progressive muscle relaxation can help calm your mind and reduce stress.

Exercise Regularly: Regular exercise can help improve sleep quality and reduce stress levels. Avoid stimulants before bedtime: Caffeine, nicotine, and alcohol can interfere with sleep. Avoid consuming these substances before bedtime.

Seek Professional Help: If your sleep problems persist or are causing significant distress, consider seeking professional help from a healthcare provider or mental health professional. They can help you identify underlying issues and develop a treatment plan to improve your sleep and reduce stress.


Morning habits to enhance your day.

Starting your day with healthy habits can help set the tone for a productive and positive day. Here are some morning habits that can enhance the start of your day.

Wake up at the same time every day: Establish a regular wake-up time, even on weekends, to regulate your body's internal clock.

Drink water: After several hours of sleep, your body is often dehydrated. Drinking a glass of water in the morning can help rehydrate your body and kickstart your metabolism.

Stretch or exercise: Moving your body in the morning can help improve blood flow and energy levels. Even a few minutes of stretching or light exercise can help you feel more awake and ready for the day.

Meditate or practice mindfulness:

Taking a few minutes to quiet your mind and focus on the present moment can help reduce stress and anxiety and promote a sense of calm and focus.

Eat a nutritious breakfast: Eating a balanced breakfast with protein, complex carbohydrates, and healthy fats can help provide sustained energy and improve cognitive function.

Set intentions for the day: Take a few minutes to reflect on your priorities and goals for the day ahead. This can help you stay focused and motivated throughout the day.

Practice gratitude: Starting your day by expressing gratitude for what you have in your life can help promote positive emotions and improve overall well-being.

Remember, everyone's morning routine will be unique to their needs and preferences. The most important thing is to find what works for you and make it a consistent habit.

No matter when you reflect on change it's important.

Have a Companion

James Joyce was an Irish author and poet who wrote extensively about the human experience, including the experience of travel. Here's a quote from his novel "Ulysses" about the transformative power of travel:

"A man of genius makes no mistakes. His errors are volitional and are the portals of discovery. As we go through life, we gradually discover who we are, but the more we discover, the more we lose ourselves. The individual self is constantly changing. We are not who we were, nor who we will be. The only thing that remains constant is our longing to find our place in the world. Travel, like dreams, is a door that opens from the real world into a world that is yet to be discovered. The greatest travelers are those who can turn their thoughts to the unknown and, without fear, embark on the journey."

In this passage, Joyce emphasizes that travel can help individuals discover and redefine themselves. He suggests that by immersing oneself in new and unknown environments, individuals can confront their limitations, learn new things, and ultimately transform their identities.
