Nurture yourself. Allow your creative energy to find a way of expressing itself. Not only will others be interested in what you create, but it will sustain you through moments of stress and anxiety. It’s one of the best ways to change your mindset and outlook from one of negativity to one of positive possibilities.
If you focus on something else, you’ll pull yourself out of the funk you’re in. Your mindset is the key to making it through the day. So stop thinking about what you don’t have and start thinking about what you can create.
If you like making things with your hands, go through the drawers and cabinets of your home and find materials to create something. Walk through your yard, or the local park and find things there. If you draw or paint, I’m sure you have something in your home to use as a canvas. Even if it’s simply a piece of computer paper or the back of an old letter you received.
Allowing your creative energy to flow will not only change your attitude, it will provide an outlet for your restless energy. Especially if you’ve been stuck at home.
Even if you’re the only one who will see it, it’s an important viewing to you! Don’t discount the value of doing something, even if you’re only doing it for you! Course, you could find a way to take a picture of it and post it on your Facebook page, or start a new Pinterest account. Sometimes sharing with the world does the trick when you feel disconnected from humanity.
And if you don’t feel like you’re one of those who can make crafts with your hands, use your head. Perhaps you’re more analytical and like working on your computer. That’s ok too, it’s still a method of creation. Write, use your favorite graphics package and draw something. Learn about something, maybe blogging would be your thing. You won’t know until you give it shot.
So whether it’s knitting, painting, wood working, gardening, digital graphics, writing or blogging; your creative energy is waiting to express itself and show the world what you’re capable of. You might even be surprised at how many people are interested in what you have to share! But more importantly, what you put out, you will pull toward you and create more of the same.
