Everyday Artist: Self-Care for Creative Artists
By Linda Dessau, the Self-Care Coach
The courage to create brings many challenges: procrastination, self-doubt, self-judgment, low self-esteem, envy of other artists, intimidation, isolation, performance anxiety (stage fright), feeling uninspired and an unpredictable income & schedule.
If you can identify with one, two, or ALL of those, you're not alone!
It's my hope that these articles will increase your awareness of your own self-care issues, and how they might be linked to your creativity and your creative dreams.
The reason I love to work with artists, specifically, is that I've seen first hand how my level of self-care impacts my creativity and freedom of expression. It's only when I'm well physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually that I'm a clear channel for my creative gifts.
