What a lovely, energetic and fun time we had together in Brenda’s latest Cocktails and Coaching session. The topic for this week’s episode was Creativity and we talked about what it is, how can we capture it, how to find inspiration, how to overcome our fears and much much more.

Some final thoughts…

During the episode we had a conversation about the ideal time and place to feel inspired and creative.

For me it is usually in the mornings. It needs to be quiet… TV or podcasts seem to distract my thoughts, but soft background music is nice. I can’t be hungry. Talking a walk in the woods or a long run will definitely relax my brain and put me in the right frame of mind…

I am sure that the optimal creative space is very different and unique from person to person… When do you feel the most creative? Use the comments section below to share!
