Hello Friends, is this real? I feel like I’m watching a movie with this whole corona virus crisis. I know you guys might be tired of hearing all the news and IG stories about it but it’s our reality. The majority of the world is at home. Out of the routine, dealing with kids and family members they didn’t have to deal with before. People are having to learn how to stay in (me one of them) and stay away for health reasons.
It’s my 2nd week been home, it has been challenging I cannot lie, but thank God I am a creative and have tons of things to stay busy with. A friend of mine asked me for ideas to be creative at home, she felt lost because she is always working and only comes home to sleep and do it all over again. So it sparked an idea in me to share a few ways to be creative with things that you might have at home or other helpful resources you can find.
Get Some Sun and Fresh Air
let me just be clear about this, when I say Sun and fresh air I don’t mean the beach or a public place. As you know we are in quarantine but there are ways to get some sun and the fresh air without having to be in a public space. As much as I want to sleep in, I have been setting up my alarm around 930ish and going for a quick walk around my neighborhood. A lot of people are not up or out so I take advantage. It helps me so much to get out of my little space, look at the sky, breath fresh air and just take it in. I am not an outside person but this has helped me to boost my creativity.
Colors, Markers, Pens, and Paper
Don’t get discouraged if you don’t have coloring books, or paintbrushes and paint. Make it work with whatever you have at home, EVERYONE HAS A CREATIVE CELL in them, so find those colors, markers, pens, and paper you had placed somewhere. Star writing how you feel, draw something that comes to mind. Tip: go on Pinterest or Google and search “what to draw” tons of ideas will come up.
Coffee or Tea
So once you find that old notebook and color pencils, make yourself some coffee or tea. The aroma, the feeling of just drinking something cozy will spark up your spirit. Take advantage of this time at home, and do something you been putting up for a while. I love the feeling of creating something and drinking my coffee, it makes it so special.
We all have a common friend, and that friend is the Internet. Thank God for it! There are so many online resources. Online classes, you can take to better your skills in anything you want. Here are a few places online you can check out and they are FREE!
Create Your Little Space
If you have a little corner that you don’t use, get a table and create your little space. Use that small table you never use, place one of your plants, place a photo or poster. We don’t know how long is this quarantine going to be so make the best of it, and create your space, make it inspirational!
Staying at home doesn’t have to be boring. Get up, listen to music, make those tick-tock videos, watch workout videos, and create something. You have that creative cell in you so don’t be scared to tap into it. Continue to be safe out there friends, and I hope these tips help you to stay creative at home if there any other activities or ideas feel free to leave a comment.
