Balancing Creativity With a Healthy Life

I don't know about you but sometimes when I am in the throws of creative energy I tend to forget about everything else, especially all that I know about healthy living.
  • I skip meals
  • I forget to drink water
  • I grab something quick even though I know it might not be the best choice
  • I work into the wee hours and sacrifice my sleep
  • I lose track of all ideas of balance in my life
  • Exercise? What's that?
I've been working on some skills to incorporate my creativity and my passion for art into my life in a healthy and whole way. It's always interesting how simple things can result in big changes.

What are some of the ways you struggle to balance your creativity with your life? Do you struggle with meals, drinks, organizing, time management, sleep, or all of the above. wink wink ;o)


  1. Hi Michelle. I have no idea how I ended up here on your blog, but I am really glad I did. I relate to everything you are saying. I just spent the entire day (okay 5 hours but between dropping off and picking up kids that is a huge chunk of time for me) sitting in a cafe working on a new project. I forced myself to order a sandwich and when someone came to take away the empty plate I said, "Did I really eat that? I don't remember a bite!"

  2. Ahhhh yes. I totally relate to that! Isn't it amazing? I think it is made even worse when we are trying to fit our creativity in between the responsibilities of family life. It becomes even more precious.

    Thanks so much for stopping by and saying hi. I checked out your blog and I'm so intrigued by your book! I want to know more!
