Creativity, I believe, is self-care. I literally love to exhaust myself in the creative process. From self-portrait sessions that last up to 5-6 hours. Sometimes in the snow; sometimes in 100 degree weather; most times on an empty stomach. That sense of discipline that pours from truly committing to what you stand to learn and how that works to improve who you are/what you can offer, is so necessary - especially when referring to self-care.
