6 Surprising Ways to Become A More Creative Person

April 25th, 2018

One of my favorite things about watching my kids play is that it reminds me how much creativity lies within each one — we were born as creative people, whether we’ve cultivated that into adulthood or not. At 5, Phoebe becomes totally immersed in drawing, building and creating stories, and Henry (2) continually surprises me with the connections he makes between ideas that would never have occurred to my adult mind. Their natural free play is in stark contrast to the productivity-focused mindset I’m usually in; even my leisure time is often spent socializing or being connected to electronics, rarely activities that require much imagination. It’s got me thinking about how amazing it would be if this creative spark were brought into our adult lives. Do we all have an inner artist longing to get out? I’ve been diving into the research and learning that reclaiming our creativity could actually be a big factor in discovering our passion, finding out what makes us feel most alive, and even being better at our work. Read on for 6 ways you can be more creative every day, and prepare to be majorly re-inspired.

  6. Yes! I couldn’t agree more with what you said. I’m often said to be a very creative person. I think that’s because I don’t think about it to hard.
