Here at Dating & Hookup, we caught up with Chelsea Latimer of Chelsea Talks Smack and asked her some questions about her new video and the meaning of life:
Dating & Hookup: What inspired you to make this video about “doing less” ?
CL: As a naturally creative person, often when I’m lacking creativity I’ll try to pack my schedule and force something to come to me that hasn’t yet. I realized, both in writing, art, and in my life the “answers” or inspiration we’re looking for are greatly tied into allowing SPACE in our minds to come to the right conclusion. It’s incredibly hard to find stillness with so much noise, i.e.; web, cell phones, etc. that doing LESS has to be an active choice and is imperative for inner listening and overall peace/clarity.
Dating & Hookup: In day-to-day life, how do you know when you need to do less vs. do more? What cues do you think you (and we!) can recognize that may tell us it’s time to be mindful, to waste time, to do less… as opposed to plunge forward and do more?
CL: Whenever I start to spin my wheels, or when I realize I keep using the phrase, “I don’t know Fill in the blank-how/what/when….etc)” that means that I’m likely cluttered mentally. I have to drop back INTO myself and intuition. To every action there’s a reaction and my action of creating space/doing less, is always met with reaction; new ideas, fresh perspectives and abundance always follows. Allowing contraction in life, clearing the schedule and mind when HELP during the inevitable times when we’re juggling life’s many “things.”
