Hello!

We loved hearing so much from our readers last week! It’s a great way for the community (and employers!) to get to know our readers/members. So be sure to keep commenting!

Today we’d love to know…

What’s the one artistic tool you can’t live without?

A certain paintbrush?

Type of paint?

Notebook? Laptop?

Specific camera? Lens?

We’d love to hear your answers in the comments below!

(Perhaps we can get some partners to offer discounts on the things you love/want/need!)

Have a wonderful day!

Abstract Art - Heather Plewes

“Abstract Art” by Heather Plewes (@hplewes) 
[Want to see your art here? Click here for more info.]

Hello!

Yesterday was a looong day for me as the night before I went to bed at 1 a.m. then woke up at 5:40 a.m. Every day/night has pretty much been that way for the last few weeks as I try to balance everything I need to do while juggling a demanding (!) schedule.

Feeling the lack of sleep dragging at my body and fogging my mind, I asked over CAC, Twitter, and Facebook how our community keeps their (artistic) energy up.

Here are a few of their answers:

“Little naps during the day and night! And eating energy making foods and lots of water…” - Susan Weiss

“take stretch breaks, dance and….coffee helps too :)” - Dorothy Weiss

“Good music and awesome coffee – not crappy coffee, this is important! Good tasting coffee = good work” - Ben Purkiss

“I pace myself and I take short frequent and guilt free breaks to avoid burning out early.”@sanleigh

“i can only write out at coffee shops. The tea and company keeps me going.” – laurie petrou (@lauriepetrou)

“I eat lots of nuts and make sure I have something good/new to listen to:)” – D’Andrea Bowie (@d_andreab)

“Healthy snacks, and drinking lots of water. Being busy with dance makes me very happy and grateful, so that helps the most!” –  Nicole Rose Bond (@NicoleRoseBond)

“Going to the gym totally helps” - @NFBMediatheque

“Healthy food choices and hydration. Plus quality coffee…” – Kate U (@TOViolinKate)

“Gym and/or ride my horse. Mostly “or” (no time for both!).” - @wpgreview

“3 cups of tea before 10:00am” – Karina Bergmans, @KBergmans

The suggestions kept coming, with most including food, exercise, naps, music, and coffee. Lots of coffee. Good coffee. Confession: I don’t drink coffee. No wonder my mind is so foggy! lol!

How do YOU keep your energy up when you’re super busy? Leave a comment below!

Perhaps finding the perfect opportunity will fuel you up, so here’s a great list of jobs for you below.
