When you're consuming too much, it's time to start creating.
A while back, I asked people who read my newsletter what practices they have in place for creative expression. I'd been feeling overwhelmed by too much information coming in - client stories, courses and CEUs, news, etc.

I find that when I'm consuming too much information, it helps to have some creative outflow to balance things out.
If you're feeling overwhelmed, it can be hard to tap into your creative side. Sometimes I can't even remember what I like to do, creatively.
In case you're in a similar state, I've compiled some of the links, resources, and ideas that people shared at the bottom of this post. There's something for everyone here.
Thank you so much to everyone who contributed.
Feeling inspired and want to focus on creating this summer?
This summer in Monday Mentoring we're going to have a focus on creation and visibility.
Our Summer challenge will center on creating and publishing content daily (as always, challenges are optional!). We'll be having an optional book club to read and practice "The Artist's Way" by Julia Cameron.
And, of course, we'll meet every week to go over clinical cases, practice management questions and more.
If you're in practice or will be soon, I highly recommend giving it a try.
