Needy 97: Self-Care & The Creative Life With Anna Lovind

Self-Care & The Creative Life, a Needy podcast episode with Anna Lovind
The Needy podcast is on a much-needed hiatus as I prepare for season 4. During this time I am bringing you my very favorite episodes from the last four years, including today’s podcast episode, “Self-Care & The Creative Life” writer, editor, and creativity mentor Anna Lovind.

Anna helps feminist creatives and change-makers go from dreaming to doing – without the striving and overwhelm. She is the author of The Creative Doer, and hosts a beautiful online course and community where women from all over the world gather to make good stuff happen. Anna lives with her two daughters, two cats and a dog in rural Sweden, where forests are deep, winter is dark and summer nights last forever.

In today’s episode, Anna and I discuss the laughable concept of finding “balance” between creativity and taking care of ourselves, practical negotiations in getting your needs met on a more oft occurring basis, and trusting your body to let you know what you need. This deeply rich conversation delves into the heart of what it means to be a driven, ambitious creator with a human body in need to tending and a hunger to live life well.

Tune in to hear us explore…

  • doing the work you are called to do instead of what you think you should do
  • saying no — even and especially when that means saying no to yourself
  • worthiness and believing you deserve to maintain your own boundaries
  • where to begin in cultivating your creative life

HANG WITH ANNA
