The Importance of taking breaks.

Hello everyone!

Sketch of the WEEK!- "Grr......Monkey Butts"

So 2 weeks ago I went to Big Bear with a bunch of my friends. Now I know what you might be thinking. Why is Adina taking a break like that when Designer Con is a month away. Well. Because I am a human. 

What I am trying to say is as a creative person it is extremely important to push yourself to making as much as you possibly can, going the extra mile to pursue your dreams and fighting past what you usually struggle with. It is also important to explore the world and do something new. The only way you are going to succeed is if you pay attention to your mental health as well as your personal growth. 

If you do not try a new experience once in a while you run the risk of creating work that is very claustrophobic. What I mean is it will only represent what you have done in the past and what you see all the time. That doesn't sound like a good idea. Nope. O-O

In the end it's still up for debate but since that trip I have never felt more content with my work load and general well being. 

The key to this sort of stuff is balance. Even if I am never completely balanced myself as long as I'm wiggling around in order to stay afloat, I will feel ok. :)
