Daily wellbeing tips

  • Follow your impulses – act on those impulses that fill you with enthusiasm and joy.  
  • Listen or watch something funny that creates the perfect mood. Laughter relaxes us, and the more relaxed you are, the more creative you’ll be.  
  • Love what you do – act on your passion. Do it with the people you enjoy working with in a place that fills you with inspiration.  
  • Appreciate yourself – all your creative ideas are unique to you come to you because of who you are.  
  • Take breaks: go for a walk, change your working posture or just step away and do something else.
  • Take time to incubate. Scientific studies have proven that short breaks are not only good to help boost productivity by resetting your focus, but can boost your creativity.
