Being Creative During a Pandemic

For creative people, stress can take away creative energy. A global pandemic is a lot of prolonged stress. I’m not here to preach about masks or vaccines or who and where it started. No politics. That’s a whole other realm of stress. I’m talking about just the daily level of seeing so much news cycle dedicated to such a depressing storyline.

Yes, I know we need good information from experts in their fields. We have to ask questions and get answers then ask more questions. That is how we advance as a society. But the constant bombardment can get overwhelming. So what is a creative person to do?

Unplug for a while. Take a break from the news. Schedule how often you will allow yourself to catch up on the news enough to stay informed and from what sources. Then go make a quite place where you can do the creative things that make you happy.

Do them often. Share them on your social media. Happiness is what we all need right now. It gives hope that there is an end to all this madness on the other side. And we all need a little more hope right now.

My name is Becca and I love to crochet. I enjoy almost anything crafty. I've been crocheting for over 35 years. I also sew in fabric, paint, and I can swing a hammer. Power tools are fun, too. And I don't just mean a hot glue gun! I also love container gardening. I live on the border of North and South Carolina with my fiance, Chris. Thanks for stopping by!
