Da Vinci taking a load off.

There’s a few activities you can do when you have completely no energy. Back from a long 12 hour shift at work, your brain is mush, what can you possibly do? Well, it just so happens that there are all kinds of things to do. Watch TV, check your Facebook, Flickr, Twitter, or Instagram, watch an action movie…basically anything that might possibly define a couch potato. This is fine, you had a long day…by all means, relax.

But now it’s your day off, you had a great night of sleep, you’re energized and ready for your day….why are you still watching TV, checking your social media, or watching the newest mind-numbing action flick? Catch up on all that junk when you have no other choice. Now is the time to bust out your art! Pull out the easel, the drawing pad, the camera, the clay, the writing pencil…start creating! Your art is what will matter in the end, not how much you update your status or how many likes you got. My mind turns into mush just like everyone else’s (in fact, I’m writing this after a long stressful work day), but I’m constantly ensuring I spend my free time in a positive way. I’m sure even Da Vinci had times where he had to relax his mind, but after his brain nap he was back at it…creating masterpieces for all of us to enjoy. No couch potatoes allowed in his neck of the woods! Always be in control of where you focus your energy, and create the masterpiece you’ve been resisting all this time.
