Remember when you were a kid and you spent your entire day daydreaming and being creative? Whether it was creating a new game, playing with an imaginary friend, or drawing a town, you exercised creativity freely and naturally. As we grow, that creativity dwindles when we start preoccupying ourselves with more practical matters. So much joy and productivity comes from being creative. If you don’t go into your mind and allow yourself to create, you’ll never see any change in your life. Daydreaming is a powerful tool that is the beginning of all of the world’s greatest inventions. If you’re searching for inspiration and creativity, try these tricks to get your creative juices flowing.
Scrapbooking is a great way to get your creative juices following because it allows you to find inspiration and tap into what you want out of life. You can either use a scrapbook for aesthetic inspiration or use it as a vision board. Either way, this is a great way to have a visual representation of what inspires you. Once you scrapbook is complete it is best to leave it in an easily accessible spot, like a side table. This way you can always grab it and flip through the pages when you’re running low on insp!
Sit by a fire
There’s something about fire that is so mesmerizing and motivating. Have a cozy night in, create a bonfire, and let your thoughts roam free. The beauty and power of fire has a way of creating amazing thoughts and realizations. Bring a notebook with you so you can jot down any noteworthy ideas that come to mind.
Write a story
Don’t worry, it doesn’t matter if it’s good! You may be surprised to find where your mind goes when you perform a creative brain dump. Don’t hold back and let your story go wherever your mind desires. This will be a very freeing experience and you may find that this exercise will turn into a manifestation session. Most kids growing up have dreams of being actors and directors so they can work in a field that allows them to express themselves creativity. Tap into that inner child and see what you come up with!
Redesign your space
Unleash your inner interior designer by getting creative with your space. Like fashion style, design style is a great way to express yourself and make your house a home.

Start by rearranging furniture and decor, making the space more functional and inviting. If you have extra money to spend, snap pieces that are true to your own style and that spark inspiration. If you know that every time you see a sunset you get inspired, hang up a photo of a sunset! Living in a space that is inspiring and inviting will you wonders for your mental health and creativity.
