Is your life so busy with tasks and activities that your mind feels scattered? It’s easy to get overwhelmed by things to do and all of a sudden not have time to do what’s most important – keeping your creative juices flowing.
Wouldn’t it be great to have more time to explore avenues of personal and professional development for yourself? These could be informal opportunities to think and reflect or formal courses that will enhance your technique.
Here are some ideas you might try:
1. Give your best time of day and the best day of the week to yourself. If possible, adjust your other commitments so that your creative energy is available to you when you are most rested and most open to possibilities.
2. Find a quiet place. “All profound things are preceded and attended by silence”. – Herman Melville
4. Keep a journal (visual or written). Keep track of your observations and how they move you to think differently.
5. Explore a new space every week. The stimulation of a new neighbourhood, park or art gallery may give you a fresh perspective on everyday things.
What is one small change you could make today to feed your creative energy back to yourself?
