1. Dealing with Stress In Creativity Introduction: uh, hi there. Let's talk about stress and creativity, a topic not talked about enough. When it comes to creativity, it's mainly how do I become? Create off. How do I think? More creatively not. How do I handle frustration in creativity? How do I deal with stress in creativity? When it comes to learning a new skill, we tend to look on the positive side. Oh, it's going to be great when I can think more creatively because of a B and C. But what about the negative aspect? It's almost like we don't even want to think about it because we don't want it to happen. Off course. No one wants to deal with the negative side of anything. But what happens when you do get stressed out with thinking creatively? Are you going to know how to get past it? This is the main reason why I created this class. I want you to have the tools that you need to manage stress in your creativity. In case you're ever in that situation, I don't want you to avoid any negative aspect of creativity in hopes that you won't have to deal with it. I want you to have the tools to handle stress, self doubt, frustration and any other negative mental block. While in your creative state of mind, having the tools builds confidence that you can overcome and achieve anything in creativity . So let's get started and roll today and I'll see you in the next section. 2. Stress Management in Creativity: uh, So you're working on your creative project, and for whatever reason, stress kicks in. What does this do to your creativity? That motivational creativity begins to get drained. Stress can sometimes push you. The keyword is sometimes because stresses negative emotion. I don't hear people talking about how great it is to be stressed out, or they wish they had more stress in their life. No people try to have a stress free life, So the first thing to alleviate stress in creativity is to take a short walk. You don't even have to go down to the bike trail. A simple short walk around your neighborhood will dio. I usually take my three dogs and we just do a couple laps around our property. This gives them some playtime while I stroll along with them, enjoying some fresh air and getting out of the house. This walk gives you a quick break from whatever was causing the stress. So when you do return back to it, you will be calm and more focused on overcoming any obstacle. The second way to manage stress in creativity is to listen to your favorite music. That song you had stuck in your head and you can't wait to just put it on. Repeat, turn it on and unwind from the stress. Music can lift up your mood and really put into perspective that life isn't so bad or as stressful as you may be. Thinking in this music is motivational and some songs you can even relate to. And when I feel like I want to switch my music up, I do have a nature soundtrack as well. No words, just all different sounds you will hear in nature to help you. D Stress. The goal of managing your stress is to de stress the moment you feel yourself falling into that negative emotional trap. Don't dwell in your stress for a couple of hours and then decide you need to stop stressing out. Stop the stress the moment it surfaces so you can continue in your creativity without the negative distraction. The third way to de stress well in your creative zone is to visualize the completed and finished creative goal you're aiming towards. It can be something from brainstorming for your next grade of project, or it could actually be completing your current creative project. What is the end goal. Visualize it and know that you will achieve it because you're capable of it. That is why you started it in the first place. You wouldn't have started if you didn't think you could reach it. So stay focused on your visual finish line and there won't be room for stress. The Fourth Way to Manage Stress And you have probably been told this already. When you are in a panic state of mind, just breathe. It's OK. The reason for just breathing is that it works. So next time your stress levels are going through the roof, sit or lay down, close your eyes and focus on your breathing. Having slow controlled breaths, exhale any negativity that you're mentally struggling with. You can start out with a short 10 minute session that eventually decrease it to five and then get to a point for when you feel stressed, you can start focusing on your breathing and sharpening your focus on your creative project at the same time without having to sit down or lay down. But if you can't or you don't prefer shortening your breathing sessions, you can just simply take the five or 10 minutes to just focus on your breathing and then return back to creative project as well. Another tip for this quick, controlled breathing exercise is to make sure you surround yourself with aromas that you like for me. I love lavender. It does help call my household, but I also have one perfume that the scent reminds me of being on the beach. It is one of my favorite perfumes that I own. Some people prefer to burn incense, and here recently I have had a lot of men growing in my yard. So I simply pick some and I boil it in a pot and the entire house fills up with that refreshing mint sent. Five. Stop doing too much. Now, before you think I have completely lost it with point number five, hear me out. We live in a busy bee society. We don't have enough time in the day to get done what we want to. So I must be crazy telling you to stop doing too much. No, If you're getting stressed out because of what all you have to do, listen to your body. Mentally, you're not ready. And if you continue stressing on a daily basis, stress will most likely affect you in a negative way, and there will be a good chance that it will shorten your life span. No joke about that. So what I recommend is breaking this down into steps. Cut your to do list in half. Start with that. Evaluate how you handle doing half of what's on your list. If there was little to no stress, continue sticking with this amount until you feel comfortable and like it's easy. Then you add on another item to your to do list. Evaluate how it affects your stress level and repeat. Basically, you're building up to where you were originally on how much you needed to get done in a day . But this time, when you reach that same number, you won't be stressed out because you have built up to it. Instead of going from 0 to 100 in a day, Some people can go from 0 to 100 a day, and some people can't. But the daily stress is not worth it. Let me tell you, in an eight month span, I have accomplished way more than I thought I ever could. If you had asked me beginning of the year. If I could handle the schedule I have today, I would have told you No. No way. How is that even possible? The secret is simple. Starting small and then challenging yourself once you are comfortable to keep stress at a minimal. We all wish we didn't stress out. But sometimes we have to deal and adjust to things that don't go according to our plan. Having these tools to recognize and eliminate stress will make you more productive in your creativity. Stress is a negative emotional response to what's happening around us. The worst thing that stress can do is to stop you and make you give up on what you're doing , what you're working on. I don't want stress to be that determining factor for stopping your creativity or your latest creative project. So the other aspect of managing your stress and creativity is to be aware of what triggers your stress, is what you're working on creatively work related and the job is the main stress trigger. Is your creativity linked to wanting to be in control? So if you're working on your creative project and things don't go according to plan, boom stress trigger? Or do you have specific or certain fears about your creativity or your current creative project that if you overthink it, you end up stressing out about it? I want you to really analyze your stress triggers and figure out what causes you to stress out. Once you start pinpointing those specific areas, you will then be able to start recognizing and dealing with those triggers before they escalate into stress. In your creative mindset, you have to be neutral in your emotions and open minded. But if you're stressing out, you can't really get into a creative mindset because you're focusing on you, your emotions and how stressed out you feel there is zero room for creativity. If you're stressed now, if you have gone through this entire class and you're thinking, well, Tatiana, I'm really not sure if I'm stressed out or not, I might be a times Maybe you can go to mental health America dot net forward slash stress dash Screener This is a quick test no email required at the end, that will give you a glimpse on where you are on the stress scale. Do you binge eat? Do you exercise on a regular basis. Do you sweat a lot when you don't exercise? What about your sleeping pattern? All of these things contribute, and maybe an external sign off stress getting the best of you. And these are some of the questions that will be asked in this quick little test. Stress can not only affect your creativity but your relationships and how you feel about yourself. So this is why stress management is so important. So I hope you are now ready to get a game plan together, start analyzing your stress and getting the tools together to handle it appropriately while being in your creative state of mind.
