Creativity is often used as a capitalist buzzword. Creativity sounds important (and cool).

Healthy creativity, however, is still a foreign word. True creativity runs on passion — and that’s the problem.

If you’re passionate and creative at work, you must protect your energy, set boundaries with yourself, and know when to call it a day. Otherwise, you may burn out quickly, and a quick recovery may not be an option.

This is what I’ve learned over the 10+ years of my creative journey as a writer and a digital content creator.

In this article, I’ll give you 7 practical tips on how to:

  • Stay creative (and healthy)
  • Set boundaries (and avoid creative burnout)
  • Enjoy your creative process (and want to do more)

It may be challenging to say “I will finish this tomorrow” when you feel excited about your creative task. But this may be the only way to avoid hating your job for months (before you, hopefully, love it again). Let’s dig in.
