We all fall into a creative slump from time to time but that’s no reason to let yourself down. I’m sharing 5 Ways To Spark Creativity!
I took a month off from blogging and even my freelance business. I was in a rut, I didn’t feel like doing anything but being by myself usually sleeping.
I needed a break, a break from the stressors that helped me dig into this rut. Neither of these were the root to the rut but as life goes on things happen and sometimes we need a break.
I’ve taken a month to get myself emotionally and mentally ready to get back into real life. The entire virus scare didn’t help at all either.
As someone with high anxiety I drew back from going out and also asked my mom to social distance by staying at home. She did because she thought it was a scary time too.
If you’re in a rut or feel yourself sliding into one there are things you can do to help keep yourself creative and keep those other monsters at bay.
This post isn’t about sadness, loneliness, or Anything other than getting creative. Brush all of those other emotions aside to allow room for your creativity.
There is a myriad of ways to find your work once again. Give these ideas a try, you’ll be back at it in no time.
5 Ways To Spark Creativity
- Keep an idea book close
- Create an environment that encourages creativity
- Create a vision board
- Explore what you don’t know
- Join other creatives
Keep an idea book close – when you have an idea you can write it down so you don’t forget. These ideas can help spark creativity when you’re trying to decide on blog posts, journal prompts, and ideas to ponder.
Create an environment that encourages creativity – make things mobile (if possible), this helps to spark creativity by keeping the mind and spaces open to new ideas. Put creative tools in view because out of sight out of mind.
Create a vision board – this is one of the things I love! It helps keep me focused on my goals. When you stay focused you’ll help manifest those goals too. Your board can be digital, collage, visual or all three.
Explore what you don’t know – exploring things you don’t know to me are exciting but then again I love to learn new things. You can never have enough knowledge regardless if it’s a subject you know all about or nothing.
Join other creatives – when you have a group you can count on makes everything easier. With a creative group you can bounce ideas off of each other, draw inspiration from others, and have a place to talk when you’d need.
If you’re in need of some creativity give one or all of these ideas a try, I’m more than sure you’ll have a great session and have a few new ideas.
What do you do when you want to be creative but don’t know where to start? I am always looking for new ideas to keep in my toolkit.
