Often I’ve had someone tell me that they are not creative.  However, then s/he will come up with amazing ideas, completely re-

decorate a room or create a poem or picture that is amazing.

Often we have hidden talents and interest that we have not tapped into.

  1. Relax mind and pay attention to where your thoughts go
  2. Relax body and see what you migrate towards.  Is it singing a song?  Drawing a picture? Redecorating a room?  Designing a new wardrobe?
  3. Just start with something and see where it leads you
  4. Is there something you always wanted to try but were afraid?  You have nothing to lose, and maybe you’ve discovered a new hobby.
  5. Try creating either first thing in the morning or late at night—people are often most creative at
    What would your inner child do?
    What would your inner child do?

    these two times of day.

  6. Exercise can bring changes to the brain to help you become more creative.
  7. Get in touch with your inner child—what did you love to do as a child?  What do you wish you could do now?
  8. Be gentle with yourself—it’s okay not to be perfect.  I have a habit of setting high standards, but sometimes I just need to breathe and allow myself to try without being perfect.
  9. Take an inventory—is there a group, interest or place you naturally migrate towards or show interest.  Why is this?  What about it appeals to you?  What does this show about your true interest?
