Steps for planning your day:
Eliminate DistractionsUnplug phone, turn off cell phones, and stay off the Internet for the whole day. You will be surprised how much extra time you will have.
This may be the time to try out new tools, or to purchase supplies you have been wanting to try. Don't forget your sketchbook, you will be surprised how the ideas start flowing when you have time to concentrate on your craft.
Go to your creative spacePut yourself where you are most likely to succeed at your creative goals. If it is beautiful outside and that's where you think you will be most creative, set up a table and work outside.
Put on your favorite sweater or top, eat candy you usually avoid, do whatever makes you smile.
Do something specialIf there is something you don't normally do, because you don't have time or you don't want to spend the money, today is the day to try. Go get that manicure or massage, enjoy a glass of wine, hang out with friends, this is a perfect way to end your creative day.
Find a way to create your own creative day. It's important for your art, for how it makes you feel, and a way to recharge your life.
