Why live life with the same routine? Life doesn’t have to be like that for you. Maybe you have been wanting to get into photography, drawing, painting, DIY, dancing any creative skill. The time is here, don’t wait any longer. Creativity is always available to you and I want to help you tap into it.
Go to a museum or a gallery
Going outside of your usual places will spark creativity. Do a google search around your area, & find a museum or gallery. There are so many artistic people sharing their work. A lot of the museums or galleries are FREE! so definitely take advantage.
Set aside time
Setting time of your day to create something is important. Let’s be honest sometimes we become too lazy, scheduling your creative time will help you so much. Think of this time as a self-care, or me time. We all need a little time for ourselves away from the madness of our everyday lives.
Look up videos or images for ideas
There are tons of tutorials on YouTube. I love to follow illustrators or people that do DIYs. It really creates a spark in me to get out of my comfort zone as an artist. Pinterest is another great platform to find inspiration.
Sleep goes hand in hand with creativity. You will not be able to survive a long day, come home and sit to create anything if you haven’t slept. Getting rest is important for your brain, even if is a little nap of 30 mins, will help you so much.
Visit an art store
Take a random trip to the nearest store by you. Look at all the products they have there. Get yourself some crayons, color pencils, paints or anything that you can think of to make something. I advise you to look up the store and see if they have an app. For example; Joann & Michaels have an app where they have coupons. You can use them and save a lot of money.
