The Importance of White Space

via Google

From time to time, I get weighed down with life and forget to give myself the creative space to breathe. Over the past week, I haven't shared a single thing on my blog or YouTube channel. This was simply because I needed some white space. To be more specific, I needed some time to get inspired by life--I was in the midst of midterms last week and didn't seem to have an ounce of creativity flowing through me. I decided to take a break. I didn't whip up a blog post or video just to put something out, I just took a genuine break. And it felt amazing. 

Although I would like to prepare better for these instances [by having content ready-to-go], I am glad I listened to my needs and took a pause. I think in the future I'll plan ahead to take these sort of breaks and I think it'll have a great impact on the content I produce. 

I've listened to countless creative individuals who spoke about the importance of living life to have experiences to speak or write about. How can I give advice or share what I'm loving without taking the time to experience it? 

I encourage you to do the same. Take time for yourself. Give yourself permission to switch off your mind for a bit. Breathe. You'll be all the better for it. 

What are your thoughts on creative space or white space?
