Even if you’re not employed in a creative industry, boosting your creativity can have positive implications in your day-to-day life. Your schedule may not allow for hours of meditation, and your home may not be able to accommodate an art studio, but you can still carve out time and space for your creative pursuits. Here’s how:
Take 10 minutes for something stimulating
Be it reading your favourite magazine or a quick workout, planning a daily activity that energizes your mind and body can give you a fresh perspective on everything from workplace tasks to meal planning.
De-clutter your home
Take a few minutes each day to put loose items where they belong. Not only is this a practical task that enhances organization, but it literally makes room for new things…like ideas. Sometimes seeing your space in a fresh light can be a big help in boosting your creativity.
Make a playlist
Many people feel more energized when listening to music. If you focus on doing certain tasks while listening to certain songs, eventually your body and mind will associate that music with positivity. Taking a few minutes to play your creativity-inspiring playlist can be a great way to jump-start your creative energy. An alternative could be listening to podcasts you find inspiring.
