Creativity is CONTAGIOUS…pass it on!

Helloooo Day 5 of #FeelGoodBloggingChallenge! I must say today was the easiest post and I thank Alex for that because it’s Saturday afternoon and I am slowly entering into nap mode…

Today I wanted to share a list that I printed out from Pinterest a few months ago. It really keeps me motivated and keeps me going each and everyday. I am going to share “29 WAYS TO STAY CREATIVE,” Well I am sharing 11 of my favorites & I will be attaching the entire list at the bottom 🙂 And no as simple & CREATIVE as this list is I myself did not come up with it. But it has helped me to keep my focus and the object of today is to HELP you the reader! So let’s dive into it!

#1 Make LISTS– Not only do they keep you organized but they are so much fun. I probably enjoy them more then the average person but hey who is to judge

*** My favorite list is the TO-DO list I make for myself each night before I go to bed. I even include the tiny things like painting my nails. It’s the feeling of crossing items off a list that keep you going. You have a sense of accomplishment.

#2 Carry a NOTEBOOK everywhere- Silly to some people but I honestly do this. Sure I have my memo pad on my phone and tablet but something about writing everything out all of the time keeps me more on task & point. It goes hand in hand with number one. Don’t ask questions just do it 🙂

#3 Try free WRITING– Now this is something I even need to try and do for myself, it’s very hard. For some odd reason it always has been. I have NEVER been a free writer, not even in Elementary School. And they would look something like this…..oh they got me so frustrated.

But who’s gonna try and tackle and improve in this area with me?

#4 GET AWAY from the computer- Okay well this one seems silly because we are bloggers & well being on electronic devices is a norm for us. But PLEASEEE take this one seriously and start implementing in your daily routines. It’s so unhealthy for us to constantly be staring at computer and phone screens. Give your poor eyes a break and pick up a book, run, walk, listen to music, etc! (And NO sitting watching a movie and/or TV doesn’t count…)

#5 Surround yourself with CREATIVE people, #6 Get FEEDBACK, #7 COLLABORATE

*** I wanna group these 3 together and for this specific reason! HEY FRIENDS! That’s what we are here for. Not just to read each others blogs ( I mean yes we are) but we are more then that. Alex brought us all together for a reason. We all have one thing in common. We wanna inspire and bring people together through our work. Whether its for business, pleasure or both. We are not here to compete and see who has the most followers or the most likes and so on. We are here to learn from each other and HELP each other! Am I right?

#8 DON’T GIVE UP– Just don’t do it okay. This is my absolute favorite quote to go hand in hand with that. We are all at one point or another gonna reach that moment when we have had enough. Don’t let it break you!

dont give up

#9 Get lots of REST– I know you wanna keep going, trust me I have nights where I have SO many great ideas and I just wanna keep pushing along. But at one point or another you NEED to rest. Yeah we know the saying “I’ll sleep when I am dead,” Which is 100% accurate (cause if it wasn’t that would be kinda creepy) BUT you NEED to let your body refuel. Take care of yourself PLEASE you are not a superhuman!

#10 BREAK THE RULES– I want you to learn the rules SO WELL just so you know how to break them properly. THEN break them so often because you will have a huge advantage over those who are too afraid to take the risk.

#11 FINISH Something- I know we ALL wanna multitask. Truth is your life will become 10 times easier if you just start a project and FINISH. Well this picture sums it up. Beware the multi-tasker!

  2. Love this post 🙂 I’ve loved all your posts though soooo of course I’d love this one! I’m a huge list maker and as you saw, I bought two super cute notebooks to keep in my purse and next to my bed. There is just something about writing down your thoughts immediately when they come to mind…I’m with you on the free writing…the thought of it freezes up my mind lol. Hope you have a great rest of your Saturday!!!!

  5. Great post! I LOVE MY JOURNAL! It’s almost filled~ and I flip through it for inspiration every so often. It’s funny when I notice repeating words or themes, it really helps me!

  6. Loved this post! Lot’s of good tips. I know that I need to focus on lists again. I have a million apps for lists and I used to carry a notebook around. I replaced it with my ipad and honestly, I’m not making use of it the way I should!

  7. Thanks for sharing this! This is so helpful and an motivation for me because my blog is going to be about my journey to creativity and hopefully carrying out an idea for a business that’s been in the back of my mind for quite sometime!
