Scones, Tea and Creative Flow

Trader Joe's Wild Blueberry Scone

The day started off with a Trader Joe’s Wild Blueberry Scone and a pot of Teavana’s Copper Knot Hongcha. Yum!

Then I got to taking some tea pictures and uploading them to and before I knew it, I was starving and in need of food and drink.

Not Wanting to Stop

When I get into creative mode, I tend to not stop until I start feeling dizzy from lack of sustenance. Unfortunately, by this point, I am so hungry that I grab whatever is most convenient.

I know better.

Yet, being in that creative zone is tremendously satisfying.

When I think about it, I realize that there is a part of me that is afraid to take a break.  I fear that I won’t be able to find that exhilarating and wonderful flow again.

Eventually my body starts screaming at me, and I am forced to stop, whether my mind wants to or not!

Taking A Break

When I finally decided it was time to take a break I felt exhausted from focusing on one thing for too long.

Dinner was devoured and then I made a pot of Carrot Cake rooibos tea from The NecessiTeas. I settled in for the night with my teapot filled with delicious goodness and Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country.

Sidenote: I’m a big Star Trek fan…I even love the original series with William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy!  Woohoo!

Anyway, I hope I can find my creative flow again tomorrow and remember to take a break before I get burnt-out again.

Remember to live, laugh, love and drink plenty of tea.

Do you like to drink tea when you work on a creative project?

    I love Star Trek, although I’ve always prefered the series, especially TNG and DS9, to the movies.

    And I often drink tea while working on creative projects. There’s something very pleasing about the mini-break you get whenever you take a sip. But I also snack, for the same reasons…this avoids the conundrum that you described in this post!

      Nice to meet a fellow Star Trek fan!

      I really like your comment about the mini-break effect one gets when taking a sip of tea. I think that is so true, but had never thought about it that way before. I guess I take several mini-breaks a day 🙂
