The Secret to Igniting Your Creativity for a Fresh Perspective
How do you navigate the maze of managing family and growing your career while achieving new levels of creativity and inspiration in your life?
I’m a firm believer in hard work and hustle, but also being your best and healthiest self.
On a daily basis we dive into our careers focused on making the buck and tending to the every need of our family. Quickly our career and family becomes our identity, and prioritizing our own health and happiness is placed at the end of an endless to do list.
We tend to utilize our creativity only for work or family life, and when it comes to our own self-care we somehow get complacent. Taking a break is not only important to unwind from work but also to our mental health--to keep our mind sharp and open to new and creative ideas.
Take it from me--you deserve it.
You don’t need to reserve cocktails for entertaining guests, and there are touches you can add to get the party started for one.
Strawberry Lemonade Mimosa
1/4 cup lemonade
1/2 cup strawberry juice
1 bottle champagne
Strawberries halves, for garnish or snacking
In these Thumbs Up Diamond Glasses, combine lemonade and strawberry juice. Top off with champagne and serve. For a fancy-ish touch, garnish with a strawberry half and add a brightly colored straw.

Taking time to indulge in creative selfcare at home can work wonders to help your personal and professional potential. Focus on the little moments and be mindful of the sensory experiences of the things around you. Think about what you smell? What you hear? When we begin to live more mindfully, worries about the things that are not going so well will go away, and we’ll be able to perceive situations in a more positive light.
With warm weather finally here, the sunlight is giving my home new life. I work from home, so today I found myself in a rather celebratory mood for no particular reason. And because May is officially Mental Health Awareness Month, I decided to ditch plans to dive into work at my new desk in favor of what seemed to be a much needed break.
It turned out to be such a fun and rejuvenating day that felt special simply because I did something unexpected without feeling guilty.
