Best Ways to Stay Creative In Your Life
Tired of being doing the same old things over and over again?? Tired of your daily routine?? Feeling bored and sleepy while working??
If for any of the above questions your answer is Yes then you are suffering from problem of being indulged in the things you don’t like or love. This above line means that you are doing a lots of things in your entire day but that work is done by you in way like it has been imposed on your shoulders and it has to be completed whether you like working on it or not.
The solution to this problem is that you should start doing something daily in your life that you love or like and you always wanted to this thing from your childhood. Some of you might think that how would I start something different when I don’t have time for finish my daily things. So if some of you thinks like that then I will tell you one great thing that YOU CAN ALWAYS FIND TIME TO DO THE THINGS YOU LOVE IF YOU ARE CRAZY AND DEVOTED ENOUGH TO START A CREATIVE THING.
And one important thing which most of us think, is very rare to find in humans that is Creativity is not a born quality. Creativity can be achieved by doing some things that broadens your mind and whenever you indulged in these things you doesn’t feel sad or bad because these things were not imposed on your shoulders, in fact you yourself started doing these things and when we start something our self we doesn’t feel bored or sleepy.
So, here are the 10 things that you should do daily to stay creative and give your life more options to be happy.
1. Try Free Writing
Try free writing that is whatever comes in your mind just write it. Sometimes we get great ideas by just writing freely. This practice of free writing will increase your creative skills and should be done early in the morning because Brilliant ideas, best solutions to the last night problems comes early in the morning.
2. Always keep a writing Journal or a small diary with you
You should keep something in which you can write upon the fresh ideas that strikes in your mind, because sometimes brilliant ideas comes while we were just relaxing or walking or doing something. So, whenever an idea comes in you mind just write it in your diary or smart phone or anything you have before it fades so that you can catch up with that idea later.
3. Make Lists
Making lists is an important ways to get new things out of your mind. It’s like making lists of things you are going to do, or making a list for buying something, or any list you have made. By making lists your sub conscious mind searches for other things related to the things you have written in your list and make you write those things. So, just start making a list and ideas will come automatically.
4. Get Away from your Computer, Take a Walk
Getting away from your computer here doesn’t means that you don’t have to use the computer again in your life , but here it means that take a break from just staring at computer screens because watching screen for the whole day not only makes you feel strain and heaviness in your brain but also not good for your eyes. So, step away from the computer and take a Walk instead. Walking will not only improve your health but also makes you think better. You might heard of Sherlock Holmes (the fictional character),
Sherlock Holmes always tends to find solutions to its various detective cases by walking. Whenever he finds himself in a difficult situation, he get up from his chair and take a long walk and THINKS WHILE WALKING.
5. Surround Yourself with Creative People
:Always keep yourself surround with Creative people. This is also one of the best ways to stay creative. You should choose your friends that are open-minded and always think outside the box because our surroundings affects the most. So, meet your friends often , talk them about your projects, your ideas and listen to them. One of the great saying that supports this point is,
Friendship of the wise is good, a wise enemy is better than a foolish friend – Rumi
6. Take Breaks, Listen to New Music
When you have come from the office or school or college you were feeling tired and the moment you enter your house you again started what you have done in the college or office whether it is an assignment or some sort of office work and this thing goes on and on and on. You will not become satisfied and happy unless you find time for yourself and start caring for yourself, appreciate your own work. So, you should find some time for yourself, at least start from 10 minutes a day, take breaks and in that break you can either listen to new music or just fresh your mind with something else other than the things you regularly do.
7. Take Risks, Allow Yourself to Make Mistakes & Get Feedback
The biggest risk is not taking any risk…..In a world that’s changing really quickly, the only strategy that is guaranteed to fail is not taking risks. – Mark Zuckerberg (founder of Facebook)
These are the words of Mark Zuckerberg who has created world’s best social networking website. If he hadn’t taken the risk and didn’t makes mistakes he might not have been able to make the world’s best and most widely used social networking website.
So, When we start something, we shouldn’t think about the failures and don’t be afraid of making mistakes because we learn from our mistakes and these things gives us experience and makes us stronger. And each time we got the better thing from the previous one.
And once you have created something or had an idea about something share it with your friends, colleagues and family members because feedback is also an important aspect that helps in making a great thing.
8. Don’t lose hope
Losing hope is like losing your life. You should never lose hope just because didn’t get it the first time or the second. Practice, Practice and Practice, and you will succeed at last. Even the great scientists didn’t get the world-changing thing the first time. Even Thomas Edison didn’t created the bulb the first time. It took him around 100 failures to make a light bulb that we are using right now. So, never lose hope
9. Count Your Blessings
We should also count our blessings which God Almighty has given us. We should appreciate all the things we have and don’t compare with others, whether he is having better job, better car, better apartment and all. These things not only let us down morally but also sometimes we overthink these things and make our self sad and unhappy.
So, it’s better not to think about others and count all the blessings that God has given to us because there are some other people also who are very poor,who didn’t even manage to eat two times a day or didn’t even earn much to send their child school
10. At Least Finish Something Daily
As you have the writing pad and any diary with you, prepare your daily tasks you have to do and should complete a task daily (whether it is a small one or a big one) so that at night when you thinks about all your daily activities, you feels good because accomplishing something gives us confidence and prepares us for future tasks and we automatically perform better in future tasks.
And with this last point, I am also finished my today’s task.
Be Creative….. Be Alive!!!
