Introducing my new book Daily Acts of Creativity. Hello, I am Amanda O’Bryan and this book offers you a way to unlock your creative style and re-imagine your creativity as a state of wellbeing.
With over 100 everyday activities to delight your muse, this beautifully illustrated, uplifting book is a heartfelt re-set for anyone on a course to finding greater contentment and a happy, healthy creative life full of love.
Packed with helpful techniques to silence your inner critic and quick, fun and whimsical activities designed to help you rediscover your playful side and embrace experimenting with the colour, scent, sound, taste and texture of life.
There are no hard and fast rules, no time-line to follow and no judgements made. You will be gently led by the hand and encouraged to reflect, play and journal your experiences with the 100 acts. Each activity is designed to have a cumulative effect so that on completion of the exercises you will have enjoyed building up your creative muscles and have found inspiration to explore new passions and create your own projects.
Inspired by my journey from stressed-out, overworked creative business owner suffering with the limiting self-belief of ‘not being enough’, I was burnt out and subsequently was diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer, undergoing extensive surgery and treatment. In Daily Acts of Creativity, I share how I felt I’d lost my creative self during this time. The journey back to that integral part of my life began when I incorporated small daily acts of creativity throughout my recovery. By re-engaging my muse it helped to re-set my course to finding greater contentment and a happy, healthy creative life full of love.
