Being creative doesn't pertain to just hobbies, etc. You don't need to develop a hobby to be creative. Creativity is all around us and unleashing creativity in everyday life will be conducive to relaxation and lesser stress.
We often make the mistake of assuming we need major changes to let creativity flow. Let's find out how we can unleash creativity into our mundane, everyday lives.
Increase creativity at the work station
Reorganize your work station
Decluttering and organizing your work space will get your creativity flowing.
The color green reduces eye strain. Add real or artificial plants to your work station.
Switch to whites
White furniture imparts a clean, clutter-free feel to the room. It'll help you focus in work.
Put up inspirational quotes around your work place.
Increasing Creativity in the Kitchen
Use That China
Take out your precious China and cookware that you keep saving for a special occasion. Use it!
New Spice or Veggie
Cook with a spice, vegetable or any ingredient you haven't cooked with before.
Having adequate dry and wet ingredients will get your creativity flowing in the kitchen.
Give away pots and pans that you haven't been using. Same with cutlery, food containers and appliances. Decluttering makes room for new things.
Increasing creativity around the house
It's not practical or economically feasible to purchase new furniture every now and then. Changing the arrangement helps attain a new look to the same room. It can surprisingly improve your mood.
Spruce up the space with pendant lamps, stand-alone lamps or simply add that magical touch with fairy lights. Lighting elevates the mood and feel to an entirely new level.
Create a little nook where you can sit and relax. Transform a corner or window sill space with lights, cushions, blankets and rugs.
Create a photo corner. Play with photographs and create your own montage. Memories of exhilirating moments will inspire you.
Creativity is not the priveledge of artists or musicians. Creativity is instilled in each one of us. Unleashing it releases stress and inspires to excel in all that we do. So pursue creativity!
Do one thing differently everyday. Sprucing up the daily routine will inspire your inner child and energize you to face the day.
