We put a lot of pressure on ourselves as creative people and especially as small business owners. So much and so often that I hear people living in constant state of stress around the clock. As many of you know, this is extremely bad for you! Besides the obvious health implications, stress can also stifle your creativity, which is of course not what any of us want when we’re being suffocated by our creative business.
