In modern day society we are expected to consume more then ever. Advertising is everywhere, which constantly tries to get us to part with our pounds. There are other forms of consuming in which distract us daily including, TV, Surfing the Internet (Especially social media), Going out to eat, ect: All these distractions cause us to procrastinate more than ever meaning its becoming harder to have the time to create things ourselves and do the work we’ve been putting off.


Find the alternatives – Instead of consuming a movie, try picking up your camera and shooting your own films or gives writing a try instead of reading for hours. Instead of consuming things that already exist, create something of your own that is yet too.  At the moment I’m in between creating and consuming,   I find putting a few spare hours a day is all you need to be able to create something or begin to work on something creative.


In this era I think it’s important to find a balance between consuming things and creating them. I think we’d all be much happier if we got into a routine of finding the perfect balance between creating and consuming. Of course we can still consume, you can’t completely cut consuming out of your life as some things are completely necessary. Having lunch followed by some retail therapy can do wonders on your mood, but we should attempt to take out more of our spare time or busy schedule to create something new.
