How I keep my busy mind focused


I recently typed up these words to help create space and focus in my ever-busy mind. As a creative and also just in my natural personality, I struggle to focus and concentrate. I always have. I have so many ideas and things going on in my head at any given time it becomes very difficult to find silence and calm to get things done.

So, I created this list for myself. Some of these come naturally to me, others not so much.

Come naturally to me

  • Negative Space

  • Lightweight (I did have to train myself at one point though as it didn't used to come naturally to me)

  • Intention (again I had to learn)

  • Comfort

  • Quality

Don't come naturally to me

  • Patience

  • Simplicity

  • Pithy

I'd love to invite you to also write a list of words to help you find clarity and direction for anything you need those for. Your Instagram, your work, a morning routine? It could be anything!

I'd love to know what your words might be. Comment below, I'd love to hear your thoughts! :)
