Jumpstart Your Inner Creativity

Jumpstart Your Inner Creativity

If you’re looking for a little inspiration, use these tips to get the creative juices flowing.



We are all creative — it’s just how we choose to express creativity that differs. And, like anything else, your creativity muscle needs to be exercised.

Whether you’re naturally creative or looking to start on a new hobby, use these tips to get in the mood.

Silence is Platinum
Break periods of activity with moments of stillness, rest or meditation. Don’t feel guilty for taking chill-out time. Escaping into a nap, song, book or movie can end up being far more valuable than trudging toward a dead end.

Pay Attention
Some of the greatest ideas are formed when the things around us are seen in another light. The more you see and hear, the more effective you’ll be at generating ideas. Being observant of the world around you will also help you see seemingly normal things and notice how amazing they really are.

Unconventional Wisdom
Some of the most creative ideas are generated when we discard assumptions. Question accepted ideas and challenge your preconceptions by spending some time with people whose life experiences and choices are different from yours.

Small Change
Make a list of the little things that you do the same way day after day. Just one change to your routine can give a fresh perspective to your day. By changing your route to work, for example, you might find a quicker or more scenic route — or you might discover a new spot to grab a cup of coffee!

Read, Read, Read
Try new genres, reread your favourite children’s book and subscribe to fascinating blogs or newsletters. Read about creative people and read about creativity. And if your eyes are strained after a day spent staring at a computer screen, go audio. Inspiration comes from the strangest places, so don’t turn anything down!

Generate an Idea
Keep a brain bank: Collect and store ideas or interesting ads, quotes, articles, cartoons and designs in a coffee can or shoe box. Shake up the container and pull out two or more items at random to see if they can somehow trigger a thought that might lead to a new idea.
