"I think it's important to know where the blockage come from. For me, it is all the pressure i put on myself, working long hours and trying to be in many places at the same time. The recent events and the lockdown taught me to be patient, mainly with myself. And that relaxing and taking care of myself was also productive. The rest will follow. Creativity comes when you're not under stress, when you're feeling your best. But above all, my best ideas come when i have fun. "
