Your Creative Spirit needs to be nursed, cultivated and practiced.
Being Creative is not a gift bestowed to a select few before birth. Everyone is creative. It’s just that for some of us that creative spark may be buried under piles of bills, boring tasks, routines, and responsibilities.
You CAN IMPROVE your Creativity Skills
Be Open to Inspiration
Here are ways to enhance your creativity . . .
1. Don’t wait for inspiration to strike.
Sometimes good ideas just pop into our heads. But more often, it takes effort. You cannot sit and wait for a brilliant idea to come along, you’ve actually got to make the effort and take the time to cultivate, stimulate & practice your creativity.
2. Make time to be creative... Be Open to Inspiration. Expect It!
3. Always Carry an Art Journal Around
Inspiration usually strikes at the most awkward times. Do carry a small notebook with you to capture & record ideas that arise while you’re out and about.
4. Listen to Music
Listening to Music can increase your creativity and focus.
4. Seek out inspiration
Our imagination is powerful, but it often needs fresh input. Engage in activities that inspire you:
- take a walk in nature
- watch the sunset
- read... read... read
- enroll in an art/related class... painting, pottery, whatever . . . but do get out and get creative!
5. Join Like-Minded Creative Groups
Join groups in your area that gather regularly to share ideas and inspiration.
