If you spend all day running like I do, juggling family, work and commitments that you took on because you thought they were a good idea t the time, then you probably need to recharge your batteries. It’s hard to be creative when you’re running on empty.
Here Jeffrey Baumgartner suggests 10 way to boost your creativity. For me numbers 9 &10 are most important.
‘Stimulate your mind by reading as many books as possible. And exercise your brain by arguing with people (among other things). ‘ I don’t argue with people, LOL, but I’m always exercising my brain. If I don’t I get restless and seek out stimulation.
Maybe it is time you took one afternoon a week, just to do what you want to do — write that book, plant that garden, see the new exhibition at the art gallery. Perhaps it is time to take a course in something completely frivolous that you’ve always wanted to do like making stained glass windows, quilting, or rock climbing. If you’re like me, you don’t have the time, but wouldn’t it be good to have one thing to look forward to all week?
How do you recharge your batteries. Me, I indulge in books and magazines about beautiful houses. Sigh.
