So, instead, I thought I'd take a look at the whole idea of being more mindful. Michelle shared this really interesting article on 3 paths to living a more creative life on our Pinterest board which I thought was really interesting. And this particular part of the article really got me thinking:
"Our time is spent responding, reacting to others or absorbing, taking in new information. But we often lack the space, the time, the moment to integrate that knowledge, connect those dots, generate that creativity. Slowing down and disconnecting provides that space."
What if we spent a little more time letting ourselves soak information in? Could we be more creative if we took more time to disconnect from the distractions?
I'm not sure it's the whole answer, but this weekend, as busy as I am, I'm going to make time to disconnect and give myself some space to be mindful. Just like those two brave ladies, taking a dip when it's 10 degrees outside. Now that's got to be disconnecting!
