Make time for creative experimentation. Let your creativity flow without thought, plan or goal, and see what develops. Creative experimentation nurtures and grows your creativeness.

5.  Once a week treat.

Once a week, make time for you. When we continually rush from one thing to the next, personal indulgence is forgotten. Indulging is anything you enjoy, like seeing a local art show, having coffee at the corner coffee shop, going to the park, or just relaxing with a good book. Creative inspiration comes from a calm mind which a-once-a-week indulgence provides.

6.  Time with nature has benefits.

Gather limitless creativity and intuitive awareness benefits from spending time with nature. Just experiencing all the wonders of our world with a leisurely beach stroll or a walk in the park raises your creative awareness.

Seems as if everything we do has a special result or goal and we become tied down to that goal. Doing something fun, like a hobby, helps you see the joy in the moment. It helps boost awareness, allowing creative ideas to flow.

8. Your imagination needs to exercise.

Like the rest of your body, the imagination needs to exercise. Start each day with a challenge that’s fun, like a creative game. For example, start with any word, like palm tree. Next, choose a creative medium, like drawing, and try creating something out of those two things. These games help nurture creativity while boosting long-term creative abilities when you exercise your mind with them. Need more inspiration? Here is a good collection of inspirational quotes to help nurture your creativity.

9.  Practice yoga daily.

When practiced daily, yoga centers you and helps fulfill your mind, body, and spirit needs. It clears mind clutter and nurtures creativity while improving intuitive awareness.

10. Everyday reading.

Reading exposes you to others ideas, making you aware of them and your creative thoughts. By reading everyday you gain knowledge and inspiration for improving intuitive awareness and fueling creativity.
