Artful August

ferns

August is here with all the fun of summer and anticipated charm of the coming fall. This year it’s got to be inspiring and fruitful. How do you feel about it now?

I feel like it’s time to create and procreate (pun intended). Writing and painting is what I see myself doing this year, only 4 months left anyway. Trying new styles and techniques is a lot of fun, there’s so much to learn in the world of Art!

4 months is a relatively short period of time but when I start thinking how much can be done, my mind boggles. I want to learn, teach and inspire others. Thinking big is helpful most of the time, let’s hope the time has finally come!

Make the world of your art a priority and you will never have a bad day ever. It’s not as selfish as it may sound, think about it, if you are truly creative and happy you can’t help sharing it with others. If you inspire music there’s no way you will be dancing alone.

Start spreading good creative vibes and you will receive ten times more. It’s addictive I know but you should try. Send your love into the future…

Good morning!

How to make your day better? Start with a winner morning. I am pretty sure you have heard this before. Well, summer is here which is honestly a perfect timing for kicking off a new habit. Here is a few things I plan to do myself cause you never know… It might actually work 🙂

  1. Mind your head before minding your feet. It’s Buddhist advice which makes you look in the mirror, comb your hair, smile at yourself and put your thoughts together before you run somewhere doing something.
  2. Meditate / pray or just sit quietly practicing Zazen for 20-30 minutes. Stay away from watching TV or checking your social media accounts at this point.
  3. Drink water before you have coffee or anything else. Play some music if you like.
  4. Have breakfast outside or inside. If you are not hungry in the morning, try to eat half of your meal the previous night saving the other half for the next day. Light dinner will help you sleep better and be hungry  the next morning.
  5. Keep your diary. Look back on what went well on a previous day, what could be done better next time, note lessons learned, plan and prioritize.

If you can do at least three of those every morning you will feel like a champion. Add sports/yoga activities if you like. Be good to yourself, life is too short to skip the best part of your day. Good morning!
