5 - Take a Break
Often times creative people have a tough time taking a break.  Many of us love to keep the pedal to the metal and just keep working away - which can often be a good thing. However, there are times we need to step back and take a break.  This Thanksgiving holiday week I am going to be taking a break and spending time with my family.  I encourage you to find space as well and do the same. Taking a break can help us jump back in with fresh eyes and a rested soul that is ready to tackle our next creative endeavor.
