Needy 40: Self-Care & The Creative Life With Anna Lovind

Needy Podcast interview with Anna Lovind
Today’s episode features writer, editor, and creativity mentor Anna Lovind.

Anna has seen bestselling authors through to publication, helped launch solo entrepreneurs into orbit and guided hundreds of creatives from all over the world to go from dreaming to doing. In her upcoming book, The Creative Doer, she writes about women’s creative freedom. In teacher program Write Your Self she teaches how to use writing as a tool for healing. Every once in a while she hosts a workshop or a retreat where women gather to make dreams happen. More than anything, she believes in the power of our voices and stories. Anna lives in rural Sweden, where forests are deep, winter is dark and summer nights last

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
