29 Ways to Stay Creative

It’s said that we’re all creative when we’re young, but as we grow older many of us lose the childhood creativity that allows us to think outside the box. So how do you hold on to the creativity that you still have?

Well, one of the best things you can do to stay creative is simply do something different. Venturing out of your basic routine should get the creative juices flowing. This means setting aside your laptop or smartphone and allowing room for creative thought. Go for a walk, get some exercise and fresh air. Most of us focus on our work all the time and let it drain our creativity.

Likewise, a cluttered workspace can be distracting and mentally draining, so organize your writing desk. Another important factor in staying creative is maintaining your energy level, whether through listening to music, nibbling on dark chocolate, or sipping coffee. Of course, a good night’s sleep always helps, too. 🙂

Lists, infographics, and videos are simple educational tools that can help inspire or motivate people to explore their creativity. For this post we’ve put together “29 Ways To Stay Creative” in three different ways: 1) as a list; 2) as an infographic; and 3) as a video.
