The key is opening the door to creativity by inviting in curiosity and doing things that awaken the energy of excitement to keep things open and flowing.
Here are 3 ways you can stimulate and tone your creativity:
Mindfulness Meditation Practice
One of the most effective ways to become creatively toned and start accessing core creativity is through a mindfulness meditation practice. Mindfulness allows us to listen and pay attention to our inner voice -whether it’s a new idea or a new perspective of perceiving a situation – enhancing our creativity and letting go of our obstacles to innovation.
Dabbling in the Arts
In the same way that mindfulness practice jogs the areas of the brain associated with well-being, optimism, and compassion for yourself and others, so too does immersing yourself in any artistic exploration or enjoyment jog your creativity. Researchers of the of the American Art Therapy Association found that 45 minutes of creative activity significantly lessens stress in the body.
