How to grow creativity everyday

What is creativity?

As you know, I love everything to do with creativity and how to develop it. For me it's not just a way to pass the time but it's a real art of living.

Creativity is the ability to transcend traditional ways of thinking or acting, and to develop new ideas, methods or objects.

Creativity is literally an individual's ability to create. Being creative is therefore the ability to invent something, to reinvent everyday life, to imagine new solutions, to dare to think outside the box, to realize one's dreams, to write...

Thus, since man has existed, he has had to use his creativity in order to adapt to the surrounding world. We call on our creativity every day: when our itinerary is changed, when we are missing an ingredient for our recipe, when we think of a working solution, etc.

Let's take a closer look at this:

  • It is an ability. Like knowing how to write, learning a lesson or driving a car, it is a knowledge that we acquire. It may seem natural to some, yet it is built and developed from an early age. Creativity, even if it is innate in some people, can be acquired by all!
  • It transcends traditional ways of thinking or acting. That is to say, it goes further than traditional ways of thinking, it allows us to see further to solve new problems that could not be solved by what is already known.
  • It allows you to develop new things. Indeed, creativity goes beyond imagination, because creativity develops. When we use our creativity, we don't just imagine solutions, we put them to work, we build them to confront them with the world, to test how they work, to validate the initial idea.

Why develop your creativity?

Contrary to popular belief, creative people are extremely busy, both in their personal and professional lives.

Indeed, if creative profiles occupy a good place in artistic circles in particular, they are also highly sought after in other fields which, apparently, do not require any so-called creative skills; we are thinking in particular of the banking, financial and IT sectors, among others. And this is amply justified for the simple and good reason that creative people have atypical assets allowing them to easily integrate into complex and variable environments.

In particular, they can be attributed an ease in finding original solutions, an ease in solving complex problems, an openness and an insatiable curiosity for the world, an ability to adapt and bounce back from the slightest changes, an ease in dispelling doubts. and uncertainties quickly thanks to a unique state of mind.

It is also a great advantage in your personal life. Creativity allows you to free the mind, to feel fully alive, to take pride in your creations, to have the feeling of acting, to relieve yourself of the stress of an intense week of work, ...

For example, when I face a problem or something stresses me out or bothers me, creativity helps me find a solution. By doing something creative, I think and act. Ideas are clearer. I feel more productive even when I'm tired. Creativity boosts me! The more my creativity grows, the more ideas flow into my head.

5 tips to develop your daily creativity

The good news is that it is possible to develop creativity! Creativity is not a magic gift that only a few lucky individuals can benefit from. It is above all a skill that can be nurtured and developed. The important thing is to find what will allow you to work this muscle.

1. Keep a creativity journal

A journal is a great tool for nurturing your creativity. It is useful for recording all the ideas that abound in your mind during a day. It also helps to remember them!

You do not need a particular structure to record your inspiration. Practice free writing to record whatever comes to mind. You can also record your thoughts on audio or video if you don't like to write. But always keep track of your ideas, they will always be useful to you one day!

2. Regularly letting your mind wander

Researchers have found that daydreaming can conduce to solving your problems, creatively! When your mind wanders, it accesses randomly stored memories, emotions, and bits of knowledge.

The key to using mind wandering effectively is to direct it to an area in which you seek inspiration. A meditation session (guided or not) can open the doors to your subconscious and help you find an effective solution to your concern, without necessarily addressing it directly. Let yourself go, empty your mind as much as possible.

3. Change frame often

One of the best ways to boost your creativity is to change the frame.

In addition, new places make you more aware of your surroundings, they invite exploration and contemplation. By going to a new museum, for example, you can find a creative solution to a problem at work.

The different people you meet on a trip or a walk can also be an unsuspected source of inspiration.

Also consider changing your office or workplace periodically to spark your imagination.

4. Read blogs, magazines, books, listen to podcasts

Creativity is far from being a gift. You must find sources of inspiration to stimulate it on a daily basis. Read blogs, books, and magazines, listen to podcasts to find new ideas and answers to your questions. Find content creators relevant to your industry and follow them.

While you're taking public transportation, cooking, or even going out to run errands, the podcasts in your ears will take you away and bring you fun and inspiration easily.

Personally, I listen to travel, business and adventure podcasts when I go out to walk my dog at night!

5. Practice DIY projects

DIY (Do It Yourself) is the perfect way to stimulate creativity and your imagination.

Indeed, the reason is simple: you have to think before making something and imagine the finished object. Then you have to find the best way to get the desired result. You will have to test, try, do and undo, before achieving your goals. It's perfect for boosting your strategic sense!

5.1 DIY at home

When you are at home, you can do DIY easily and in your daily life by:

  • making your meals for the week while using the leftovers in the refrigerator;
  • upcycling fabrics to create your own accessories and clothes;
  • manufacturing your own household and cosmetic products;
  • gardening while making your plants proliferate;
  • creating decorative objects for the home...

In short, you will have understood that there are lots of ways to maintain creativity at a lower cost while staying at home! If you are looking for inspiration, I advise you to take a look on the Pinterest social network with the keyword search “DIY” you will find many other ideas there. You can also subscribe to my Pinterest account, where I regularly pin easy and fun DIY ideas for everyone.

5.2 DIY in creative workshops!

Of course, I couldn't end this article without telling you about the creativity workshops. A great way to develop, implement and discover your creativity! In the creative workshops, we carry out DIY-type projects. The advantage is that you do not need any equipment or knowledge. You just need a good mood, motivation and the desire to discover new things!

The workshops are also an opportunity to meet new people who also share this creative spirit, without wanting to become an expert in one artistic technique or another. The idea is to clear the mind and spend a good time.
