  • Learn to Love Yourself

    Nov 23 2021

    Write down 30 things that you love about yourself. To make this exercise work, you have to go big. And you know what? That’s hard. A lot of us struggle coming up with three things we like about ourselves. Catch us on a bad day and we have a hard time coming up with one. Why is that? Ward and Shawn work through the Learn to Love Yourself exercise from design.org to find out. They learn how lists like this can alleviate things like writer’s block. They talk about how positive self-recognition (noticing who we are) can inspire us to make our next masterpieces. Learn more about creativity and mental wellness at design.org. Go make something.

  • Grateful AF

    Nov 16 2021

    Can being grateful make you less anxious and more creative? We think so. On this episode, we put that theory to the test and make a list of 100 things we're grateful for. Then we talk about how it made us feel before and after. Ward shares insight about what happens to the way we think when we stop and appreciate the world around us, especially when we do it first thing in the morning. Make your own list of 100. It only takes 10 minutes to do it. What's on your list? What are you grateful for? Learn more about creativity and mental wellness at design.org. Go make something. Create happy!
