Episode 34

How auto-pilot habits might be sabotaging your studio time /34

As of July 2023, we won't be posting new episodes but you can connect with Bec & Michele and continue the conversation via the links below.


Bec and Michele have more to say on what might be going on beneath the surface when you find yourself avoiding the studio…

Following on from the discussion of perfectionism and unreasonable standards in the last episode, this conversation digs deeper into how habitual behaviours and automatic emotional responses can really undermine our best intentions for our art practice. How can we become more aware of these patterns and make better choices to support a truly satisfying and enriching artistic life?

Michele has thoughts about Instagram art challenges, Bec may need a TimTam (Australian chocolate biscuit) intervention, and they both offer practical ideas to get out of the stuck and into action.
