We all love it been creativity hits and we create/come up with AMAZING ideas etc. How many of us can say though that at times, it gets hard to be creative. I know in my line of work as a Creative Arts Leader, graphic designer, social media etc, it can be taxing trying to be creative all the time.
Here are 3 Ways to Igniting that Creative Spark
1.) Read something that interests you. This is huge! I will be honest, I'm not a huge reader but when I do read it really does open me up to creating more and just learning more. Try it, pick up a book and read.
2.) Make Time For You. This could be if you're in the office get out and take a walk (maybe to Starbucks and get a Flat White) lol. You need to remember why you do what you do and why you love it so much. Some good mental reflection can go along way as well as help you get back on track. Like I always say, clear that brain clutter and get better!
3.) Write Everything Down. We live in an amazing time where we have ALOT at our fingertips. If you have a smartphone etc you have tools you can use to write down every little idea and or thought that crosses that amazing mind of yours. My favorite app for this for phone and desktop, is Evernote. You get EVERYTHING at your disposal from getting ideas down, to taking pictures of creative things that will help you get better and be more creative! You can also do voice memos which I use from time to time. If you don't take your ideas seriously then why should anyone take you seriously? Write it down, keep track of those amazing thoughts.
Here's to a better more creative you! Now go do something amazing and create something inspiring!
