#365Creativity – Challenge Yourself to Live a Creative Life

365creativity

 

Everywhere you turn it talks about consistency being the key to success. But we all know how difficult it is to do things every single day.

What if you focused not on just one aspect of your creativity but all of it? So instead of trying to write or paint every day, what if you made a vow to do something creative every single day?

Sound hard?

Things that you can do that are creative:

  • Write
  • Draw
  • Paint
  • Read
  • Take a picture
  • Meal Plan
  • Cook
  • Decorate
  • Blog
  • Exercise
  • Dance
  • Make Travel Plans
  • Color or play with your kids
  • Organize
  • Brainstorm
  • Garden
  • Crochet/Knit

Those are just a few examples. You can get creative in the way you simply try to be creative every day!

The key to this challenge is to record your efforts in any way you see fit. You can have a creativity journal. You can simply write down your activities on a calendar. You simply want to hold yourself accountable by documenting what you are doing. If you are sharing your efforts on social media, use the hashtag #365Creativity so that we can find it and cheer you on!

Being creative is an act of self-care. Allowing your creativity to grow and shine is an act of self-love.

Make the commitment to #365Creativity and watch how it changes your life for the better.

Creativity Sundays – Make time!

Do you make time to be creative?

Often times we get caught up in our lives. We can begin to run on auto-pilot. This can lead to not having enough time to really relax and get creative.

Make time each week to sit and focus on your creativity. You want to be able to sustain the habit so make sure you pick a time that will work long term. Or you could switch it up each week given changes in your schedule. Just make sure that you are giving an hour or more to your creativity.

The other key is to not spend this time forcing yourself to work on anything specific. This should be a time where you can really relax and not worry about deadlines or restrictions. This is time to simply be the time where you express yourself freely.

Try it out and notice how your creativity and overall life changes.
