5 Ways to Tap Into Your Creativity

5 Ways to Tap Into Your Creativity

Dear friends,

For the longest time I thought that I wasn’t very creative. There was no real reason for these beliefs I held, it was simply a thought pattern that I would repeat to myself over and over again.

As a kid, I loved tapping into my creativity, I loved to paint and color and create games outside with my friends. Creativity came easy to me because I didn’t question or overthink it, I allowed it to naturally enhance my life.

As an adult, and as someone who historically overthinks all aspects of life, it felt like my sense of creativity was lost in the constant worry of perfection. I couldn’t just draw to draw, it had to be perfect, I couldn’t create without overanalyzing. I allowed myself to believe that I was no longer creative simply because of my repetitive thought patterns.

What I know to be true is that we are all inherently creative. We all have minds that are capable of imagining amazing things, we simply have to allow for it. I also know that with practice and intention we can enhance aspects of our lives, too.

If you’re like me and sometimes feel like your creative side is out of reach, know that you’re not alone, and know that no matter what, you can always come back to it! This week I wanted to share with you five of my favorite practices I rely on to dive into my creative side. I hope they are helpful for you!

  1. Spend time connecting with yourself. So often when I feel disconnected from my creativity it’s really because I am disconnected to myself. It’s amazing how beneficial it feels to take a few moments daily to stop, breathe, and connect. So many of the answers we seek rise to the surface when we make time for this practice.
  2. Cultivate a journaling practice. Whenever I find myself too much in my head, I go to my journal to write it all out. There is no better practice for me than putting pen to paper to give my thoughts a home. Through journaling I discover so much about myself and my desires for life, but also so many of my creative ideas come through on paper.
  3. Get out of your head and into your body. Whenever I find myself too in my head and overthinking things, taking a break to move my body always helps me to recenter and tap into my creativity. So many of my best ideas have come when out for a walk or in an exercise class. Movement helps me to be present and allow, which is the perfect equation for creativity to flow through.
  4. Consciously try new things. It’s easy to get in creative ruts when our lives feel like they’re lived on autopilot. Sometimes the monotony of the same places, people, and things every day can turn off our creative minds. The simple act of mixing up your life can help rectify that. Try a new coffee shop, take a different route to work, or even go for a walk in a new part of town. New experiences can give our minds that creative spark we’ve been yearning for.
  5. Give yourself time to unplug. One of the biggest hindrances to my own creativity is when I’ve spent too much of my time staring at a screen. While technology gives us so much, it also can zap our creative flow. Make sure you have time in your life outside of a computer, phone, or television. In unplugging from technology, you can plug back into your creativity.

I hope these simple reminders can help you remember your innate creativity! Let me know your thoughts in the comments!

xo, Michelle
