There are many different definitions of creativity, but it goes without saying that it can add a lot of spice to an otherwise boring life. Creativity can lead to a number of different things, such as being able to cook delicious and different meals for your friends and family, creating beautiful greeting cards for friends, and even knitting or sewing clothes to send as gifts. Sadly, getting more creative takes time. You first need to learn a new skill, then apply it to different things in life. To give you a hand, here are some easy ways to get more creative. As always it starts with the courage to follow your dreams and faith that with God all things truly are possible. You really can achieve both professional and personal success. Believe!
Reserve time each week for your hobby
If you want to get more creative, you’ll have to find the time by making small changes to your life. Start by reserving a bit of time each day to your hobby. Be it for the sake of reading, learning, or practising it. However, if your hobby takes a lot of time, then you may want to reserve time for it on the weekend or specific days. For example, if it takes a long time to set up your paints and easel for art, then try to reserve more time for it on the weekend. If it’s something easier to begin, such as digital art or writing a blog, then you can indulge yourself more often during the evenings.
Use commute times to study something
To maximise your time spent, make sure you’re using commute times and other free time to learn about your hobby. For example, if you have to go toilet, take your phone or a magazine with you and read about it. If you want to make music, then read guides to learn how to be your own in home music producer while you’re on the bus to work. Take a look at your lifestyle to try and determine when you have time where you’re doing nothing. Fill those empty gaps with reading and try your best to learn whenever you can.
Find people that share the same hobby
A great way to stay engaged with a new creative hobby is to find people that share your interests. Whether it’s a local group of people or through an online website, try to make friends who share similar interests. This will help you stay motivated and you’ll have an easier time finding advice from people who are more experienced than you. You can share your creations, talk about new findings and also meet up for group projects.
Share it with friends and family
Try to share your creative interests with friends and family. For example, if your children are interested in art, then practice your skills with them. If your hobby is cooking, then tell your family or friends that you’re going to cook dinner one night and let them sample your meals. The more you test your abilities, the more practice you’ll get and the more motivated you will be to be creative in life. Just remember to correctly balance your interest with your work life and family life!
