I had the chance to attend a Creative Mornings Atlanta session last week and loved every single minute. The guest speaker, Joey Reiman, gave a great talk, making it the perfect way to kickstart my Good Friday.

I believe in the importance of quality consumption and mental pauses as a creative. We are so often expected to produce, create and deliver consistently and supremely, but that is not possible without moments of cognitive rest and rejuvenation. This can happen by way of a binge watching session, reading a book, going out to eat with friends, playing video games, going to lectures... et cetera. I need to recharge quite regularly, which is probably why I spent most of January watching Living Single, and why I felt so moved by my recent trip to MoDA, and why I am itching to travel somewhere.

Hustle hard, yes, but remember to rest hard, too.

Creative Mornings happens monthly in cities all over the world. Attendance is free but does require an RSVP. Space fills up quickly, so make sure to subscribe to their local newsletters for updates.
