DO THIS BEFORE YOU JUMP START YOUR NEW YEAR!
It has started, our new year of perhaps expectations and planning. I have however made a pause to reconcile and adjust to what lies ahead.
It could had looked different if I had jump started this year with a head full of just to do’s and accomplishments, but I decided to reverse it all to benefit me later.
I have spent some time after the Bells rang, wishing us a great New Year, with sorting out, cleaning stuff and changing what is not beneficial anymore.
To begin with a clean slate is often a good way to start something, dishing out what is not compatible anymore and looking for things that will support me in my new endeavor, so I did!
Are you on the path too? Have you done your cleaning out before committing to something new?
Well, for this part of the journey to become more free to create there are some good stuff that can take you further by doing them before you prepare for your journey.
5 TIPS TO MAKE YOUR NEW YEAR START OUT FRESH.
❤︎ CLOSE ENVIRONMENT
Start by looking at your close environment and decide what is distracting you and feels like it creates an obstacle from your creative process. Decide if you still need to have it around you and if it fits where you are at the moment. If it doesn’t fit your expression and the way you feel just get rid of it!
❤︎ SOCIAL MEDIA
Making a stretch out of Social Media is to get focused. For this to work you need to let go of all those distractive Apps that you don’t use anymore. I have downloaded Apps that for some reason didn’t hit the ground with me and so it sits there whenever I open the phone and TAKES UP SPACE. Let’s be real – it is not fun to have your screen full of useless Apps that distracts you from where you want to be in 6 months or so. Be ruthless, be hard, be truthful. The Apps that are wasting your time, annoying you, makes you upset, doesn’t work, crashes – ditch them right away and save the ones that makes you have success in whatever you are doing, and off course saves you time doing what you are doing.
If you are like me VISUAL, you know the languages of images and drawings and how it works out so well for you to work and be creative. Well the tendencies are to gather a lot of them for future work or inspiration. They tend to get outdated, a memory of the past, a good to have image when you are going to make xxxxxx. Can you hear this? It is all about the past and it will soon trap you not to make a leap into the present with what can be considered NEW, clean, newborn etc. Set aside time to clean your desktop from ALL your saved projects and images and begin anew.
I made this process fun by choosing a new DESKTOP image as a sign and inspiration that I have started clean and new for this year, and by the way I chose some of my own images taken a winters day with FROZEN CRYSTALS everywhere a truly beautiful day.
Well that is a great subject. If you are like me then you have your phone loaded with images from all kinds of places, projects, meetings beautiful things that you saw etc.
It goes like this, you take a picture CLICK and save it on your phone, then you take another picture CLICK and after some time you could have ended up with thousands of images.
Tell me honestly, how often do you scroll and look through all of those images? Nae – didn’t think so, but they also take up space in your phones MEMORY. Did you hear that? MEMORY. This is something that you don’t want to weight you down. For this to work you can make a security copy on your computer for later use and processing. After that is done you can now go into your phone and delete all the images that are not required anymore. Just by doing this you have created more space for being creative, perhaps shoot a new video, take a new picture etc. And not the least it feels good not to be cluttered with old images
❤︎ STUDIO SPACE
After some great projects last year and sales until the very end, the time for Christmas and New Year with family and friends nocked on the door. A lot of things piled up in the studio and the time for rest was laid upon its energies. Can you remember how it feels when the studio has been on its own for some time? An empty and dull feeling subsides in it and the moment you enter it really speaks out lout TAKE CARE OF ME!
I think you can guess what I’m going to say……..Just CLEAN out the studio! Throw away rubbish, pull out your cleaning gears and do the job and when it’s done make sure to lighten a incense to clear the energies in its entirety.
Now you can start to work again, with new and fresh eyes!
