Waking Up With Eros
To me, wellbeing means taking care of yourself in a holistic way. Everything in our bodies is connected and has a beautiful way of signaling something. Slowing down and taking your time for the things that make you feel good and whole- be it a creative pursuit, meditation, cooking, brushing your hair- all those daily actions of care are a part of wellbeing.
I feel the most creatively fulfilled when I'm in a flow with my creativity and having fun. Putting together a moodboard, being on set, having open time and space to make something that adds a bit of magic to the world.
Some things that help me when I'm feeling overwhelmed or stressed
* Journaling. Joan Didion once said- 'I don't know what I think until I write down.' I feel this deeply. Taking pen to actual paper (not just digital) slows me
down and allows me honestly express whatever I'm feeling.
* Stretching. If I'm overwhelmed, I reach for the yoga mat and foam roller and listen to some radiohead or Moby. 10 minutes later, I'm in a totally different headspace.
