How to Stay Creative

posted in: Creative | 4

It’s an odd topic, isn’t it? Being creative is unique to each individual and sometimes you just can’t quite tell how to keep your creative juices flowing.

Creativity isn’t an emotion; it isn’t a friend you call up in the middle of the night and neither is it a choc-chip cookie (sadly!).  It’s being able to use your imagination and being original in what you do. Because it comes from within, pinpointing exactly what triggers it for everybody is tricky. But it doesn’t hurt to give a few new things a try…

Writing is fun and rewarding but only for as long as I can stay creative. And unfortunately, I only get creative in short doses now and again. I’ve come across a video on 29 Ways to Stay Creative that actually lists a few things I personally do: clearing up my work space, visiting new places, taking breaks (or perhaps that’s just the procrastinator side of me talking).  It has some fantastic, and more importantly viable, ideas that I just had to share with you.

How do you stay creative? Share your tips in the comments below, I’d love to know!

    Cool things! I like taking coffee, taking breaks and listen to music. I am not sure these 3 things help me yet 🙂

    Love the smell of coffee but hate the taste so I’ll have to chose from the others. I’ll be keeping the list handy. Thanks.

      Ah so you’re a tea person then?
      You’re welcome. I plan on trying out everything on that list, soon:)
