When do you stop painting?
As with anything you do, are passionate about and love, when do you know it is the time to stop? Do you push through, pull all nighters just to get that painting done, not have dinner with the family, or make time to stop and have a fe moments with yourself? Surely your worth being with for ten minutes a day?
So in the past I probably would have pushed through, gone to the studio at night, after dinner to paint, I did that with most things. But now I am learning to listen to my body and stop when it tells me to stop.
For example this evening it was amazing to feel at around 5pm my body naturally started to tire, not an exhaustion, but more a it's time to start winding down the day, I didn't know what time it was but I knew by what my body was telling me it was around 5pm, and when I looked at my watch, it was just after 5pm. How cool is that!
I also noticed things that I am super good at like precision, detail, take care with the tiny details were starting to slip, this is all a tell tale sign it's time to stop what I am doing, So I listened to my body and feel way much better for it, Time for a yummy homemade thai tofu curry and a hot bath to finish the day.
