Whether you are teaching, parenting or blogging, a little inspiration goes a long way in your work. Finding creativity in my daily routine helps my happiness status. I have numbers 1, 8 and 18 down! I make lists on my iPhone, on my dry-erase board and on paper. I drink coffee a couple of times a day and it gives me comfort. Getting out and buying a warm cup at one of my favorite spots or sharing some with a friend is a plus! Conversations and the exchange of ideas and experiences are so valuable. I also count my blessings on a regular basis and it sometimes becomes my mantra to get through tough days.
On those tough days, I beat myself up (as #5 clearly states NOT to do). I almost believe that I am not a good enough mom, that today’s post was awful, that my workout was weak-these negative thoughts start to influence my attitude towards everything. So, I do number 6: take lots of breaks! The breaks allow me to think and plan to go somewhere new (#17), even if it is just to browse someplace nearby. Number 28 kicks in and I have lots of fun exploring.
It’s a cycle, isn’t it? The search for creativity and the outcome once found can make a helluva difference in your days. Life is long, get inspired: find the positives and seek the benefits.
What do you do to stay creative?
P.s. For #23, I would suggest to READ anything! Don’t you think?
