E031 Mental Health for Creatives Part 2

In this episode, we talk about how we relate to ourselves as creatives, how our attitudes affect our mental well-being, and learn about the mindsets and habits that can help us find balance.

We discuss the need for finding our identity beyond the work that we do, though the two are often intertwined.  

We unpack the phenomenon of imposter syndrome and all its implications for us as creative practitioners. We go into the issue of comparison and share a few personal learnings and mindsets that have helped us be more confident as creative individuals. 

Nithya explains the irony of our quest for belonging and certification, while also desiring to be unique. We talk about how social media forums can be toxic and what a good community really looks like. 

We talk about how to build great mental health habits, as well as tips for first-responder care for both ourselves and our loved ones. 

We discuss the barriers to getting help and how designers can make a difference.

We conclude with some mindset tips on how we can be our own biggest asset.

Design Lota is hosted by designers Angeline Bhavya and Sushmita Charlu.
