I'm Listening: X Ambassadors’ Sam Harris Says Creativity Only Comes When We Let Ourselves Relax

'I’m learning to practice mindfulness and just being in the moment more'

Let’s face it, it's hard not to succumb to the pressures of the daily grind, particularly during a time where its difficult to find a healthy work/life balance. However, X Ambassadors Sam Harris strongly urges us to find some moments of solitude amidst the chaos that is 2020.

Harris feels that his creativity does not flow if he isn’t able to find a moment to relax. “The issue with being an artist is that not only is this my job, but it's also my passion, not only is it my passion it’s also my hobby,” Harris shares, as he tries to explain his relaxation process.

Sam has realized that what relaxes him most is music, however, sometimes he needs to take a step back and simply focus on being present in the moment. The singer says, “I’m learning to practice mindfulness and just being in the moment more.” While creating and songwriting are his passions, the X Ambassadors’ frontman knows that to be successful he doesn’t need to be creating all the time.

Harris’s work and relaxation balance is proof that it is crucial to make time for self-care in order to achieve goals.
