I love being creative. I think it adds colour to life. There are a number of things that I do to  keep my creative thinking constant. I came across a blog recently that listed out 33 Ways to Stay Creative. (www.theworldsbestever.com). I thought it was a great list and there are a lot of things on the list that I do. But it did get me thinking about some additional things that I do that aren’t on the list. So here is the list I took from that site and the I added some of my suggestions.

  • Make lists
  • Carry a notebook everywhere
  • Try free writing
  • Get away from the computer
  • Be otherwordly
  • Quit beating yourself up
  • Take breaks
  • Sing in the shower
  • Drink Coffee/Tea
  • Know your roots
  • Listen to new music
  • Be open
  • Surround yourself with creative people
  • Get feedback
  • Collaborate
  • Don’t give up
  • Practice Practice Practice
  • Allow yourself to make mistakes
  • Go somewhere new
  • Count your blessings
  • Get lots of rest
  • Take risks
  • Break the rules
  • Do more of what makes you happy
  • Don’t force it
  • Count your blessings
  • Create a framework
  • Stop trying to be someone else’s perfect
  • Clean your workspace
  • Have fun
  • Got an idea? Write it down
  • Read a page of the Dictionary
  • Finish something

Here are my additions for how to be creative:-

  • Be a reader of blogs
  • Allow an idea to ruminate for a couple of weeks in your brain and heart
  • Understand the power of your imagination – and use it.
  • Give yourself to developing your ability to think creativity
  • Be Positive. Negativity and creativity don’t work together
  • Keep learning new things.
  • Commit to getting out of the comfort zone
  • Be a Yes Man. Say yes to as many opportunities as you can.
  • Brainstorm with people around yu
  • Hang out with kids, they are amazingly creative
  • Pray in tongues
  • Write
  • Take time to think
  • Travel and immerse yourself in other cultures
  • Back yourself. Actually have a belief in yourself
  • Manage your emotional stress as emotional stress and creativity are diametrically opposed
  • Read widely
  • Ask lots of questions
  • Exercise and get some endorphins pumping through your body
  • Put the hours in. Being creative takes time.
  • Everyone is born creative yet we lose it when we are rewarded for colouring inside the lines. Start rewarding yourself when you colour outside the lines and it works.
  • Be Passionate
  • Make a list of things you love
