5 Self-Care Tips To Boost Your Creativity

Spending time on yourself is essential to feed your creative minds. Your brain is a machine that works non-stop the whole day. And on top of that, it continuously creates new pathways within all of us that describes a person’s individuality.

But, this might hit you like a ton of bricks, all that you do every day is just the tip of the iceberg. 

Did you know, a normal human being does not even use 20% of his thinking capacity? Out of 100%, not even 50% of it has been achieved by any human to date, which is now considered as a misattributed myth, though.

But the whole point is if Einstein was able to discover the unknown, then don’t you think you can do it as well? After all, he wasn’t a God, right? 

Once you take good care of yourself and your brain gets pumped up, you will notice a change when you go to work. And every time you have to discuss intuitive plans during a meeting, you will come up with so many ideas, you never thought your mind was able to create. This will ultimately help your mind grow bigger, better, and slicker.

Well, we are here to encourage your self-esteem. We have listed down some hot tips that will make you scratch your creative minds. Let’s dive in!

1. Reading books can enhance your cognitive skills

First, we all need to understand that reading is not just a hobby. All the book lovers would know what that means. It is more like a learning opportunity to help you broaden your imagination. 

This means the time doesn’t need to come to you. In fact, you need to find some time from your busy routine to read at least one hour a day. 

If the reading doesn’t fascinate you much. You can also invest your time in watching movies or documentaries of your favorite genre. But how can reading or watching boost your creative energy? 

Well, let’s think about it this way; when you watch a movie in a foreign language with subtitles, of course, you naturally start to develop an interest in knowing and learning the language even more so that you don’t have to keep track of subtitles. While you are at it, you are giving the bonus treat to your mind, believe it or not. 

2. Socializing helps you in collecting new ideas and see the world from a new perspective

Hanging out in a small group is always a good idea. But, exploring out of your circle is the best thing you can do for yourself. Here is how: (right now we need to keep those groups to a minimum:))

When you go out of your way to socialize beyond your boundaries, you will see tons of opportunities coming your way. You will meet all kinds of people from various cultures, different religions, and diverse races. These are the people who will help you with viewing things all around you with other concepts. 

Even a casual discussion with random people can help you open a secret chamber inside yourself you never knew you had. 

So, giving up on your antisocial behavior will help you to gain more knowledge. And from knowledge comes power. This is how your mind can be set free from everyday worries and have a broader perspective about things. 

Don’t believe it? Well, if you ever get a chance, sit with a traveler. Have a good hour conversation with him, and you will know what’s being said here. Just keep 6ft between you!

3. Long hours of bathing can make a person better at figuring things out

A bathroom is an escape place for most of us. There is nothing to hide here. And well, who doesn’t like a warm shower after a long day? Guess we all are alike in this matter.  

Did you know, taking a shower every day has proven to lessen down the stress levels? No stress means you panic less. And when you panic less, your BP level remains at an optimum range, and you are less likely to develop heart diseases.

Taking long showers is a great way to relax your mind; it also helps you stay fresh all day with bubbles of innovative thoughts bursting in your mind. I love a long shower!!!

All the thoughts wild or civilized come together during shower time. These small self-arguments make you better at reasoning things and also helps you develop an intellectual personality. 

4. Writing your heart out can help you identify your standpoint in a much better way

Writing a poem or creating a rhythmic verse help you push your creative mind a little further. Your mind works like Google when you intend to write or recreate your own, one of a kind piece. 

Even if you think you can’t write. Grab a paper, pick a pencil, hold it tight, and start pouring your thoughts, one by one, on to the Paper. As Vincent Van Gogh said, if you hear a voice within you say, ‘you cannot paint,’ then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced. 

While you are busy creating a masterpiece, your body will feel a sudden rush of endorphins that brings about joy and excitement in you and motivates you to write more. 

5. Learning something new helps you to set a frame of reference and a vision in life

There is always room for a little learning, Right?

Ask yourself a question right now, what was that thing you were so passionate about as a child, but never had a chance to do it?

Whether you wanted to learn to play a particular musical instrument or enroll in a ballet class was your childhood dream, today is the time for you to bring it into action. Invest in yourself and learn it now!

Trust our words once you get done with it, you won’t be able to put your feelings into words. Besides, it will boost your memorizing capabilities and make you feel more productive than before. Check out more of my blogs.

The Bottom Line

To sum it all up, creativity is a mindful activity that you do without putting in a lot of thought. It only comes from within. And remember, your brain can build new ideas when it is at peace. You can solely provide that peace once you decide to take some time out for yourself. Besides, it empowers you.

So you see how your soul and bodywork hand in hand. And it would help if you made sure that it never goes out of balance. As Jules Verne would say; The body regulates the soul, and, like the balance-wheel, it is submitted to regular oscillations.
