In a previous episode, I talked about how I’m reigniting my creativity through The Artist’s Way 12-week journey. Now I’m here to tell you about my very first artist date. The goal is to spend some amount of time all by yourself doing whatever you want. Sounds amazing, right? And also, maybe, a little bit impossible?
In today’s episode, I’m sharing why I scheduled this “me day,” how I prepared (including scheduling it into my calendar and sticking to it), what I learned, and how you, too, can have your own “me day,” whether it’s 10 minutes or a full day.
The important thing is recognizing that self-care fills your cup. It allows you to be more present, not only for yourself, but also in your work, and with your family. You cannot give to others from an empty cup. I hope this episode inspires you to prioritize some time—weekly or monthly, whatever you can do—for yourself.
I’d love to hear from you if you schedule a “me day” and want to share. So, as always, send me a DM @morethannicolej on Instagram! I love talking all things business and life with you guys more than anything, and I can’t wait to hear from you!
