MINDFULNESS IN BUSINESS & SELF-EMPLOYMENT

Last week I recorded a podcast I am very proud of with Benjamin from @head_rest! We chat about mindfulness and self employment and the things that have helped us carve out a different path and way of doing business. 

We discuss how daily mindful rituals have helped us with energy, inspiration, creativity and enjoyment. We also compare how we work in a different way with an ethical focus and how we craft our working days to embrace our natural rhythms and energy levels. There are also some tips on how to make little changes to bring you back and get into a state of flow where the best work and ideas happen!

If you listen I’d love to hear what you thought and if you might make any mindful changes to your working day.

CHARLOTTE

Hello! I’m Charlotte the founder of Creative Wilderness. I love to collaborate with forward thinking brands. I’ve had over 10 years in the design industry working at big agencies on brands including Wilkinson Sword, Peroni, Kozel, Energizer, McCann, The Hut Group, Pilsner, Aldi, Cambridge University, Harbour Hotels and many many more.

Before jumping into design I dreamed of being a Rock star and studied music at Paul McCartneys music school ‘The Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts’. I spent a few years as a pro musician where I toured, played festivals, recorded albums and also a music video. I still love playing sax and bass in bands and music and design make me feel alive and inspired!
