For YOU, Positive Series

Positive Series #8-Get Creative

March 12, 2013


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?

    One of the best ways to stay creative is to find inspiration from elsewhere. For instance, with blogging, try reading blogs (or anything else really) that don’t have anything to do with your niche. I do the same with design; usually the creative streak happens from something completely unrelated.
