Creative Peak Times
I shared an important video on the channel this week and wanted to touch base about it here. If there's beens anything that's been a real game changer for me and my ability to tap into a state of peak creative flow, it's been becoming more aware of my peak creative times. This also came up in a creativity coaching session with a client recently and developing this awareness created a profound shift for her as well. I realized it was high time for me to talk about this with all of you.
In a nutshell, creative peak times are specific times times of day when you do specific creative work most easily and effortlessly.
In my case, my daily peak creative schedule looks like this:
Mornings- best for really focused, individual creative work; like writing, reading or character work.
Afternoons- collaborative creative work like meetings, working with clients or filming.
Evenings- on your feet stuff like rehearsing or dancing.
I encourage you to start paying gentle attention to when you do certain types of creative work best. This can look completely different for everyone so allow yourself to be open to whatever reveals itself to you.
Once you've started observing a pattern, give yourself permission to honor your peak creative times. I call my morning creative times my "Morning Golden Hours" and protect these with a fierceness. Don't be afraid to do the same.
And that's it! It's really quite simple =)
And feel free to leave any comments or questions below. I will respond to them!
With love & creativity,
