Like van Gogh, many artists have bouts of depression and anxiety. I’ve had my fair share of battles myself. Mental health is just as important as physical health when it comes to your art practice. That’s why, I’m sharing with you 10 actionable steps that you can do to lift your mood today.

A healthy mind is your greatest asset in your art practice” – Miriam Schulman

In this podcast, you will discover…

  • Discover 10 tips to improve your mood
  • Explore  little-known tricks to catch the ‘sleep bus’ on time and wake up ready to create masterpieces
  • Learn how to unlock the power of journaling to question negative narratives to stop spinning

A cluttered space reflects and exacerbates feelings of overwhelm and chaos. Every piece of clutter demands your attention, which can lead to more scattered thoughts” – Miriam Schulman

About the host, Miriam Schulman

In case we haven’t met yet, I’m an artist and founder of The Inspiration Place, where I help other artists learn how to profit from their passion or become better artists. Through online classes, business coaching programs, and a top-ranked podcast, I’ve helped thousands of artists around the world develop their skill sets and create more time and freedom to do what they love. My signature coaching program, The Artist Incubator, helps artists go from so-so sales to sold-out collections.

After witnessing 9/11, I abandoned a lucrative hedge fund job to work on my art full time. Since then, my art and story have been featured in major publications including Forbes, What Women Create, The New York Times, Art of Man, Art Journaling magazine as well as featured on NBC’s “Parenthood” and the Amazon series “Hunters” with Al Pacino. Check out my best-selling book with HarperCollins Leadership, Artpreneur, how to make money from your creativity, wherever books are sold. When I’m not in the studio, I split my time between New York City and a farmhouse in the country.
