Self-Care Tips with Loish
In this episode, we chat a lot about what we call the Growth Equation (i.e. stress + rest = growth), and Loish breaks down many of her keys to a long and happy career – including: how to avoid burnout, great ways to prioritize your health (even when the work piles up), and what habits can boost your creativity. We are so honored to have her join us, and we hope you'll glean as much knowledge from this episode of GameDay as we have!
Many of us in the KitBash3D community have followed Loish's work for over a decade, and, as evident by her 2M+ online followers, we’re not alone. As prolific as she has been, you might assume that she possesses some superhuman ability to generate art, but what was fascinating about having her on our show was learning about her professional dedication to self-care and her passion for sharing her knowledge with the world.
Self-care plays a central role both in Loish’s personal routine and her content. That’s one of the many reasons we love what she’s doing – encouraging other artists to dream big AND to take care of themselves. It’s something anyone striving to “achieve more” can employ. Loish practices what she preaches, and the results, well, they speak for themselves.
“Warming up is not just about our hands, but also our minds. It’s so important to let go of perfectionism and allow ourselves to experiment and learn!” – Loish
