Finding ways to nurture your creativity is something that many of us find challenging and even frustrating.

We hold on to this notion that being creative means being artistically talented, but that couldnโ€™t be further from the truth!

Creativity is not limited to the visual arts;

it can be applied in any field.

Everyone is capable of being creative and many people already are without even realizing it!2

Letโ€™s take a few minutes to explore some wonderful ways to nurture your creativity.

1. Understand What It Means to Be Creative

Once I was having a conversation with a dear friend of mine and we wound up talking about how I love writing and drawing.

She told me that she wished she was also artistically gifted, but then I pointed out to her that she is in her own unique way.

She loves to cook and frequently experiments with new recipes.

The definition of creating is simply having the ability to imagine something and bring it to life, and we are all creators of something, so you have a whole list of your own ways to nurture your creativity.

You create every single day whether you cook, maintain a garden, or run a business!

2. Nurture Your Body

A healthy body and a healthy mind go hand in hand.3

Exercising regularly and maintaining a nutritious diet are both great ways to nurture your creativity!

Physical activity has been shown to enhance our cognitive functioning;

so not only does yoga improve physical flexibility, but mental flexibility as well!

Taking a brisk walk, riding a bike, or going for a run will release your endorphins and also any possible stress that may be blocking your creative juices.

Take advantage of a nice day to go outside, get moving, and explore the world around you!
