Part of the allure of being a full-time freelance photographer is the ability to work for yourself and make your own schedule. That means no more nine to five and no more of the monotonous daily routine, right? Not necessarily. Your routine doesn't have to be monotonous but according to the seemingly always energetic artist, photographer, and entrepreneur Chase Jarvis, a solid morning routine can jump start your day.
In Episode 7 of Chase Jarvis RAW, Jarvis talks about his morning routine, which doesn't involve a computer or camera, and how it paves the way for him to be productive and happy throughout the day. Both of which are crucial for being able to work with people and staying energized. Obviously each day is different, but I think having a morning routine is genuinely important and sets the pace for the rest of your day. Jarvis touches on the amount of sleep he gets, his transcendental meditation practice, and a variety of other topics. Jarvis delivers some solid all-around advice for life, let alone photography or business. Check out the video for yourself and feel free to share any important aspects of your daily routine that help you stay in the zone for your creative work.
