Lacking Creativity? Three Ways to Explore Your Inner Artist

 Finding time to relax and break from the complexities of life can be challenging. With hectic work schedules, pressing family responsibilities and a list of personal to-do’s that would put Cinderella to shame, it’s next to impossible to unwind. The good news is, you’re not alone if you struggle with leisure time and you're in need of a few strategies for R&R. With relaxation in mind, here are three ways to get creative and explore your inner artist.

No. 1: Grab Your Cell Phone Camera and Head Out

These days, you don’t have to be a professional photographer to take incredible pictures. Almost everyone in America has a smart phone, and for good reason - they do pretty much everything. Grab yours and hit the town - when inspiration calls, you’ll be ready. Take a bus ride or walk the streets in search of something unique and creative to capture on film. You’ll be surprised at how many opportunities there are to see art in ordinary things (who can forget the brown paper bag in American Beauty). If you’re lucky enough to live near the ocean, take a stroll seaside with a cup of coffee to capture an early morning sunrise. The possibilities are endless when you use your imagination, and focusing on a few captivating images is a sure way to let go of tension and anxiety.

No. 2: Put Your Creativity and Imagination to Work with Paint

Remember finger painting as a kid? If you can see it in your head, chances are you can create it on paper, or in this case, canvas. Most local craft stores sell a starter kit for beginners complete with a few brushes, some paint, even the palette if you’re looking to get serious. If you’re lacking for ideas, pack a few snacks and tote your belongings to a park or grassy area where you can sit comfortably for an hour or so to stir the creative juices. In no time at all, brushes will be flying and your inner Picasso will be going strong.

No. 3: Do Something You Never Thought You’d Do

Are you tired of hearing stories about people who do exciting things like go skydiving or take flying lessons? Maybe it’s time to put yourself out there with a creative experience you never thought you’d do. Take a cooking class or sign up for beginner’s karate. Live in Florida? Take advantage of the warm climate, or the snow if you’re up north, and participate in some outdoor fun for renewing and revitalizing your body and mind. Stepping outside the box every now and then to restore lost energy and enthusiasm is a smart, practical and healthy lifestyle choice. When it’s time to refresh and rejuvenate from the inside out, tap into your inner creativity to expose a happier, healthier and more productive you.
