How Do You Stay Creative?
Sometimes, the only thing I want to do is sit on my couch with my laptop, a novel, a glass of wine and a movie. I very much enjoy these activities and like to indulge them in order to relax and unwind.
Conversely, I also recognize how taking the time to create something--anything--makes my spirit come alive. Whether it's slinging words onto paper, using my hands to knead a loaf of bread, or dragging the paintbrush across a blank canvas, my core perks up.
I want to proactively set aside time for these endeavors in my everyday routines. I'm curious: Do you consider yourself creative? If so, how do you integrate creativity into your daily life in a way that feels natural and inspired?
