How To Rejuvenate Your Creativity

As creatives, we all hit a rut or fall into a state of repetition with our work sometimes. It can seem average and uninspired to us, especially when we work on something for so long. How can we, when stuck in these situations, rejuvenate our creativity.

Change Projects

If you are anything like me, you have a place to list all of your ideas. When you feel stuck in your creativity, look at that list and pick up something new to do. The change can help generate new ideas and refresh yourself and your mind.

Pick Up A New Medium

I was facing really bad writer’s block and was struggling with writing being my creative medium. So, I recently decided to pick up a new hobby of creativity and started painting in my free time. It helped change my focus and artistic expression to help rejuvenate and make new creative ideas happen. Also, it’s great to find creative pursuits in many mediums, not just one.

Enjoy Someone Else’s Work

When we are facing creative struggle, it can help to go and appreciate the work of someone you admire. Or even just scroll through Pinterest can be very conducive to creative flow. Or, listen to music to help inspire you. I get very inspired by music, so adding that to your brainstorming or work can help lift new ideas from you.

How do you refresh your creativity? Let me know in the comments.

    I’ve been meaning to take a painting class lately. Sometimes you just need to use a different part of the brain, which inspires your own work when you do get back to it.

    I totally agree, sometimes we all need to rejuvenate our creativity and I personally noticed how changing a project or focusing on something else can help.
