Be Productive, Even During Downtime

Hey everyone! I had one super busy week and with less to do this week, I’m trying my best to be productive, even during downtime. It’s easy to fall into a state of rest after you’ve put the pedal to the metal and really pushed yourself to get stuff done. Still, if you have goals you want to achieve you can’t exactly just fall into a stroll and expect to get the same results that you got when you were working at full speed.

I’m an advocate for listening to your body and your mind. If you push yourself too hard you’ll surely fall over. Still, I think that even when you slow things down a bit you can still take inventory and make worthwhile decisions that will help you in the long run. I guess that’s just a long-winded way of saying that I’d prefer to rest without wasting time. I think you can still make progress and be productive even while you’re in “rest” mode. 

Downtime is a great opportunity to get a headstart on projects you have lined up and to address things that may have been neglected during your busy season. This week I’ve put together a few music videos that are all creative and that all inspire me to keep the momentum going.  When you see other creatives making something beautiful and opening our minds to what’s possible its makes you see what you’re capable of doing as well. 

Later this week I’ll introduce you to my fourth music interviewee and next month I’m launching a brand new interview series that I’m sure you’ll love. It’s really exciting to see these projects and ideas that I have go from just a lightbulb moment to the real thing. It’s a self-actualization that I hope continues and I’ll be focusing my energy on bringing you more fresh content both during and outside of life’s busier moments.

Keep in mind that some of the songs featured in this playlist are relatively new, some are old and from varying music styles. This week scroll on down and give your ears a bit of bliss in the form of Jack Garrat, 99 Souls, Miike Snow, & ZHU. You can listen to more playlists and all featured artists on Spotify!


So, will you be productive, even during downtime?

NOTE: I’m this month featured creative over at This Wondrous Life! Check out my interview, and work!
