I don’t know about the rest of you, but I found it much more of a challenge to FOCUS on creative projects during the pandemic. Things are getting better now, but early on? Forget it. I did way too much doom-scrolling online, worried constantly about loved ones as well as the future.
I’m gradually getting back to a regular routine as well as adjusting to the new normal.
BUT I’m also finding that part of getting back into a productive routine means sometimes staying offline, getting better at saying no, always taking time for play, and learning how to set priorities. I’ve also been using the Freedom app on my Mac sometimes when I’m doing creative work.
I talked more about prioritization and making time for play over on the Freedom website blog.
