*Episode 328:* We are all creators - whether we're creating a podcast, a beautiful meal, music, a drawing, or our living spaces. The pressures of content creation and consumption on social media can leave us feeling disconnected with the pure joy of creation and enjoying content. At the end of 2020, Madelyn took a step back from social media and content creation and did a bit of Instagram cleansing, which then led to a reevaluation of her own time and energy, and a break from the podcast as well.

In this episode Madelyn discusses this break, how to use the stresses of 2020 as an opportunity for change in 2021, rapture, and the joy of naps.
