Hi! For all of my fellow creatives, artists, business owners out there having a weird mental time right now, I wanted to share and compile some tweets that helped me feel comfortable in the current situation and help me get back into that positive healthy mindset. Hope these help and speak to whatever you might be going through right now <3
PRODUCTIVITY IS PERSONAL.
As this continues, I’m learning that being productive doesn’t always mean working on your business. You could also be productive working on your mental health. Or working on just being. Productivity is personal. And that’s important to remember.— KATIE MASTERS (@NailThoughts) April 14, 2020
RELEASE THAT TENSION.
Release the thought that you’re in competition with anyone. Can you imagined the amount of stress it causes on your body?— MINDSET MAMI 🧠✨ (@Hire_Women) April 18, 2020
MIND YOUR OWN JOURNEY.
Never compare your day 10 to someone’s year 10. Just Keep putting in 100% everyday, your journey is your journey.— Beyoncé Of Marketing✨ (@JunaeBrown) April 18, 2020
YOU ARE 100% NORMAL.
Maybe you, like me, are noticing an incredible resistance within yourself to creating new work right now or restructuring the work you had previously created for the way you were expecting this year to go.— Jamie Lee Finch (@jamieleefinch) April 14, 2020
Yeah, that’s grief. Be gentle. Give it time.
DON'T FORCE THINGS.
Psst- You don’t have to be making or posting any content right now if you don’t feel it. ❤️— KATIE MASTERS (@NailThoughts) April 14, 2020
MUTING IS IMPORTANT.
You can practice social distancing on social media too. Stay away from people who are infected with negativity, a lack of generosity, an unwillingness to seek truth, etc.— James Clear (@JamesClear) March 21, 2020
GET REAL WITH YOUR INNER WORK.
I've spent most of my adult life overworking & over functioning. If you don't feel compelled to do anything during this time, DON'T. You don't have to learn a skill or trade or anything. Your work now is dealing with YOURSELF when you've been used creating so many distractions.— Myleik Teele (@myleik) April 26, 2020
Now is a great time to re-purpose content you've already put out too. Especially if you're not in a space to necessarily create (or keep creating) anything brand new. What's old to you will always be new to someone else.— Beyoncé Of Marketing✨ (@JunaeBrown) April 26, 2020
WHERE IS PERFECTIONISM COMING FROM?

WHAT'S ACTUALLY MOVING YOUR FORWARD?
"Productivity isn't about doing more things, it's about doing the right things"— Beyoncé Of Marketing✨ (@JunaeBrown) April 4, 2020
PRESIDENT LADY GAGA. Sorry this was just too magic not to include.
