Issue 86- November 13, 2020

Hello Friends-

"Welcome back to this week's episode of, "The Cre8tive Life"- your weekly newsletter full of lifestyle tips, smiles, and musings.

I hope this finds you doing well (all things considered). It has been quite a busy week for me work wise. And, my sleeping patterns are also a bit all over the place (for no real particular reason). With that being said, I am going to TRY to make myself go to bed at a decent time tonight (it's almost 9pm now...), and put a little something together for the newsletter. My goal is to get back to the regularly scheduled format next week...but, I don't want to make any promises...At any rate, I *hope* that you have still been finding something helpful and useful in this momentary change-up. 

As always, sending lots of love and hugs to you all.

And, continued prayers that you and your loved ones stay safe and healthy (mentally & physically) out there 💗. 


Random stories, pictures, video highlights, and other life musings can be found on my personal instagram page (@e101) and official brand page (@thecre8tiveartisan) throughout the week (when/if I end up posting anything).

*And, if you have missed any previous newsletters, feel free to check out the archive section on my website: HERE.


  • TIP 1: Try to get on a reguar sleep schedule


  • TIP 2: Do something you've always wanted to do, but always put off


  • TIP 3: Focus on your breathing- (it's easy to hold a lot in these days!)


  • TIP 4: Remember to drink your water!


  • TIP 5: Intentionally watch something funny, joyful, or mindless


  • TIP 6: Eat some fruits and veggies


  • TIP 7: In the midst of screen time, remember the 20-20-20 Rule: Every 20 minutes, take a 20-second break to look at something 20 feet away




This week's challenge is a repeat:

Remember to breathe, and protect your spirit and energy!


I will be taking a bit of a mini pause on my community activations as I gear up for some new projects that will taking up a lot more of my bandwidth. But, be on the lookout for some (very sporadic) events here and there. (As doing these events, and sharing in community really does bring me joy.)

 And, if you haven't heard me say it lately, I want to thank you for your support and readership. It means a lot that you take time out of your day to take in my  little musings and life shares!

Lastly, if you happen to have any future topic ideas, or come across any events I should know about, PLEASE feel free to send those along my way. I always LOVE discovering and learning about new things! 

Have a great day, and be sure to take time to enjoy your life!
