Find Time for Creativity by Infusing it into Your Day

Posted by Megan Petersen on

Time for creativity: if you're a creative person, then there's never enough of it.

But here's the thing: just because we aren't always able to fit large blocks of creative project time into our weekly schedules doesn't mean we can't get creative (see what I did there?) and brainstorm ways we can still infuse it into our day-to-day activities.

My fellow creatives, hear me out. I am with you! How I yearn for endless hours of unstructured time for working on my creative projects and building on a mountain of ideas that I can never seem to get to in order for them to materialize.

And while what I'm proposing is not a solution for not scheduling solid creative hours in your week, it's a "good enough" fix for in the meantime.

Because here's the thing: creativity is a muscle. It needs to be exercised or it looses it's strength. And when we find ourselves without the adequate time slots to work on our creative projects, we may start to feel our creative muscle atrophying. 

So I propose finding way to sprinkle in creativity in our mundane tasks. This could be finding a new way to commute to work in the morning. Getting creative with some children's bath paints while we take a shower. Trying out new recipe's when making our meals. Writing a paragraph of prose just before bed. And so on.

Step 2: Track your daily activities, even the most mundane and boring among them.

Step 3: Brainstorm ways you can infuse creativity into all of your activities. Remember: the more you work that creative muscle, the most it'll spill over into your art projects!

Step 4: Let me know how it goes!
