In the last year or so, I’ve abandoned my outcomes-based life outlook in favour of one that relishes in the process. I just basically re-worded the cliche ‘it’s about the journey, not the destination.’
I highly recommend.
I gained new perspectives, I had more time to really listen to what people were saying and the experience, untethered from expectations or pressure, made for one of the most exhilarating years of my life.
Oh, and I got exponentially better at my craft. What a helluva by-product.
Routines & Ruts
I speak more on this and a whole lot of other stuff around process in a long interview for the Routines & Ruts podcast by the wonderful and incredibly attentive Madeleine Dore. You can listen to the whole thing here.
Music to make you feel less stressed as you work/study.
Life can’t be laden with moments of triumph, joy and accomplishments without a bit of hard work here and there.
That process need not be torturous though. To me, music is a key ingredient in my personal book on how to feel less stressed.
We’ve created a playlist of chill beats to serve as the soundtrack to your process. The music is instrumental, soothing and sure to get your brain waves flowing in all the right kind of ways. The whole thing is designed to teach you how to feel less stressed.
It’s playing right now as these words are being typed.
A small side note: the artwork above is by artist Michiel Schuurman, who uses a design printing technique called Risograph to make his works. I’m not a designer myself so this was a new process for me to discover at an epic zine/design exhibition at MoMa Ps1 in NYC. It’s not just my process that I obsess over.
Ok back to the music. You can listen to this playlist here. Crank it for your office and tell them Groove Therapy says hi.
Groove Therapy is a dance class series across both Melbourne and Sydney. We’ve also launched an online platform. Our dance experiences are designed to make you feel less stressed, whilst learning legit moves. All levels are welcome and beginners are encouraged.
