Where are my introverted creatives at? These are my favorite practices for those who work from home all week, serious up top and party on the bottom, lol.
〰 Create a Morning Routine
Being your own boss is one of my favorite things about being an entrepreneur, but with freedom comes responsibility. Setting yourself up for success starts with creating a routine that allows you flow. Focus on the things that ground you in the morning and set aside time for you to make those a priority before starting each day. Don’t put pressure on yourself to set your alarm at the crack of dawn. Be realistic and find a time that feels intuitive for you!
〰 Find your Flow State
Many creatives produce their best work when in a flow state, an alignment between the mind and body where we are able to dive deep and be completely absorbed by our work. This sync creates an effortless momentum that when achieved will change the way you work. Becoming fully immersed in the moment and the task at hand requires tuning out any and all interruptions. Leave your phone in another room, put in a pair of airpods, or work at a local coffee shop. Find your flow state and embrace it.
〰 Set Boundaries
When you love what you do, it can be difficult to separate personal life from work life. Our identities may overlap and blend together, but it is just as important to nurture the entrepreneur as it is to nurture the woman behind the business. Dedicate a number of hours to your work and dive all in. Work your ass off so when the time comes to shut down the computer and turn off the phone, you can fully embrace quiet and stillness.
〰 Get Comfortable
If getting ready makes you feel more productive and put together, do your makeup routine before sitting down at your desk. If comfy is your thing, toss on some loungewear and grab a blanket. Embrace being in the comfort of your own home and do what works best for your mind and body.
〰 Set the Mood
What’s around us subconsciously affects how we work and how we feel. We are a reflection of our environment. Here at Ethereal House we believe in the power of tapping into this inspiring environment to reach alignment. Having a clean workspace, lighting a candle, burning palo santo and turning on background music creates an ambiance that drives productivity and empowers the intuitive creative within us.
