Ways to Stay Creative

Today I found this inspirational list (even though it was posted back in Feb.) but still applicable to so many creative types (like you and me :) Sometimes we get into a cycle and don't realize it until it becomes a rut. Hope this brings some insight into your life!

by Paul Zii on Tumblr

I, for one, need some rest. I've read about people who are refreshed after only sleeping 5-6 hours a day (everyday) and I am definitely not in that group. I can do 5-6 hours if I've slept 8-9 hours the day before, but I can't keep it up. I heard the older you get, the less you sleep need. I can't wait until I get to the age when I can get away with saying ridiculous things and get up for early morning walks at the same time :)

Great list. By the way it is unfortunately not so much that you need less sleep as you get older but that it is simply much harder to sleep so many of us have to learn to live with less. Perhaps that is we get forgetful, we are all sleep deprived.
