How can you get started with creative thinking?

You can begin with simple exercises like opening a box of paint with no intention or idea of what to paint. Just paint! You don’t have to get it right or be perfect, you can just be you.

Or maybe you want to create a vision board for 2018. Imagine all of the places you want to go, the people you want to hang with or date, the types of meetings you want to have.

Imagine it first, it starts there.

We are three part beings: thought, word, and deed. First, you need need to think it into creation. Then speak it and then do it!

Listen to Something New

Another way to jump-start your creative thinking is by listening to music or a podcast. Put on something you’ve never listened to before to break out of your creative rut. You may find you begin changing your definitions of creativity and there are now new and different parts of your brain lighting up!

Get Creative By Getting Your Groove On

Dance! Creative thinking often starts with an active body.

Try a dance class, or enjoy the movement of your body in your own living room. Whatever it is, do something to get up and get going! You may feel inspired and ready to tackle new and exciting projects. Or perhaps you’ll find that your workload isn’t as daunting as it first appeared.

Write Your Heart Out

Try writing for 15 minutes and time it. From the minute you press start, you should write freely. Write whatever comes to mind without thinking about it or planning. Then step back and see the creativity that flowed from your mind to your hand, and then to your pen and onto the paper.

I’ll leave you with one of my favorites: affirmations. Another awesome way to boost creative thinking! Positive statements can help you remember what it is to be creative and how amazing it feels when creativity flows through your mind and body.

If you want to join me on a creative journey through art and journaling to heal my relationship with myself, come play here.

Try these, just write them at the top of your page and keep writing:

I AM WORTHY OF MY DREAMS…

I TRUST IN DIVINE TIMING, THE UNIVERSE ALWAYS HAS MY BACK…

These can help you tap into your creative superhero within. Have fun being the greatest version of you that you dreamed up!
