Creativity is something that everyone has. I know what some of you are thinking right now- that you totally don’t have a creative bone in your body. I, however, am going to completely prove you wrong throughout this blog post.
Everyone has a touch of creativity; you just need to find it. Here are 7 ways you can channel and boost your inner creativity:
Being creative is something that a lot of people struggle with. While I know that deep down everyone has the ability to be creative; it is definitely tougher for some to find their creativity than others. Taking some time to think of a bunch of ideas is extremely helpful when it comes to channeling your creativity. The goal is to bounce one idea off of the next until you eventually find something that you like. Whether it is debating what to draw, figuring out a name you’d like to call something, or even a blog post idea, this works. Trust me.
Take Alone Time
Going along with brainstorming, taking some time to be alone can really help spark ideas. You know when you’re half falling asleep in class but half day dreaming about random things? This may be a bad idea in class, but can be an awesome idea when you’re trying to get your creativity going.
Go On Pinterest
Pinterest is the ultimate social media outlet for the creative. You can find everything and anything on Pinterest. Whether it be a D.I.Y or a cute quote, there will always be something. I like to browse (a.k.a. spend hours and hours) on Pinterest when I’m in need of some blog post ideas, or just ideas in general.
Use A Blank Canvas
Sometimes the best way to come up with creative ideas is to just let your pen run freely. I find that when I take some time to jot down simple ideas, they turn into even larger, more elaborate ideas if I continue to write. This also works with sketching.
Take A Break
Life is crazy, if you’re stressed out 24/7 you’re probably going to have a tough time coming up with the creative idea that you’d like to. Try and let all of life go for a little bit and really think about yourself. What are you trying to do? What do you want to create? How can you create this? As weird as it sounds, I think of my best ideas when I’m in the shower.
Utilize Sites Like Bloglovin’
Similar to Pinterest, Bloglovin’ allows you to follow different people and then get updated whenever they post something. When I hit a creativity block, I always head over to Bloglovin’. It’s a lot easier to come up with your own ideas after reading a ton of other people’s.
Get out, quit reading this blog post and go socialize! Talking to people can easily become a root for creative ideas. Bounce ideas off one and other, you might even begin to think of creative ideas without even realizing it.
Best of luck with your creativity! What is your favorite way to boost your creativity?
