2. Incorporating Yourself into Your Content

Kelly emphasized the importance of authenticity in content creation. Here’s how you can do it:

  • Share Personal Stories: Your life experiences are unique and interesting. Sharing your personal stories can help you connect with your audience on a deeper level.
  • Be Genuine: Authenticity builds trust. Be true to yourself and your values in the content you create.
  • Engage with Your Community: There’s a community out there for everyone. Engage with your audience and build a supportive community around your content.

3. Affirmation and Journal Exercises

Kelly also led the group through some practical exercises to boost mental well-being and creativity:

  • Start your day with positive affirmations to set a positive tone. An example from the workshop: “I am capable, I am creative, I am enough.”
  • Journaling can help clear your mind and spark creativity. Try writing about what you’re grateful for or jot down new content ideas.

Balancing creativity and mental health is a journey, and it’s important to find what works best for you. The insights shared by Kelly U during our workshop provide valuable guidance for creators striving to maintain their mental health while pursuing their passions. Remember, your mental health is just as important as your creative output. Take care of yourself, set realistic goals, and always strive for authenticity in your content. Happy creating!
