Creating Space For The New

Creating Space For The New

Anyone wanting to start something new, like creating art, authoring a book, volunteering, or building their brand faces the problem of time constraints, unable to accommodate any space in the already busy and overloaded life.

We need to create a structure for all the existing stuff in our lives and then carve out space for the new.

Creating Structure

Our existing responsibilities can be overwhelming, the neverending tasks at home and work. This burdens the mind more once it is overdue and we are feeling behind. Creating structure and allotting certain time and days helps us deal with the workload.

We can allot different days for paying our bills, doing grocery shopping, doing administrative work, answering emails, and even allot time for self-care and playtime.

Replenishing Yourself

Focusing is hard when we are already drained and not having the bandwidth to face anything. We need to recharge our batteries, giving ourselves nourishment and nurturing.

Freedom And Joy In Every Activity

Work is stressful because we don’t want to do it, but have to do it.

We won’t feel so drained and discouraged with our job if we could light up our dull routines with joy, freedom and vitality. It is something that needs to be explored, as everyone cannot leave their jobs and rush to do what they love to do, right away.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Giovanna Scalzone

Ghazala Begum
