Staying creative in these crazy times can be tough but creativity is the key to both sanity and innovation.
We have all hear how important going for a walk is to stay active and help refocus our minds on something other than work. Why not turn those daily walks into photo safaris where you take three unique pictures every day? You can print them out, frame them, and decorate your home office or simply make them your computer’s screensaver or wallpaper.
They say everyone has at least one story worthy of a novel. Maybe you can spend 45 minutes each day outlining your characters and planning your plot lines. Who knows, you may make the New York Times Bestseller List by next summer!
Maybe writing isn’t your thing… maybe you are an entrepreneur and now is the perfect time for you to create that home based business you have always wanted to run. Start with the business plan and work your way through every step as a daily break from your 9 to 5 role.
Would you just rather doodle and draw? That works! Order a couple of cool pens and a fun sketchbook to doodle away in! This can be a huge source of relaxation and ritual. Plus, if you’re still a tad entrepreneurial you can potentially sell any of your original doodles on a stock image site!
No matter what you do to stay creative, your team will reap the benefits. You will come to meetings with a new perspective and creative energy that stimulates innovation and adaptation. Your creativity might even inspire your other team members to get creative themselves.
