Let's talk about a muddy mind...
If you're anything like us, sometimes you are filled from your feet to your neck with ideas. Wildly ambitious ideas. But ideas don't always equate to execution. In fact, sometimes ideas can be overwhelming and excitement can easily turn into anxiety. Can you relate?
Here at WORD we're in the NBA of creativity and love to see our community nurture their ideas into the real world. So to support you all in whatever you may be nursing this Summer, we created a list of tools to spark creativity. We hope these exercises help you find what you're looking for to turn your ideas into living, breathing things. Have some other suggestions? Shoot us an email and we'll add. We love hearing from you guys: firstname.lastname@example.org
1. Tie dye old clothes: Grab a readymade tie dye kit like this one on Amazon (it's on Prime Express so you can have it in 2 hours if you want!) and breath new life into old garments. Using your creative intuition to create something new will give you a burst of innovative adrenaline. You'll be pumping out inspiring ideas in no time - plus, you'll have some new, cute things to rock!
2. Journal in the morning: Creating intentional morning habits is one way to brush away the cobwebs, setting you free first thing in the AM to properly feed your mind and creativity. Some prompts to consider:
My future self
What does my utopia look like?
What is my personal credo/philosophy?
A morning brain dump/stream of consciousness
3. Write out a list of 100 things. Any 100 things. 100 things you are grateful for. 100 places you'd like to visit. 100 things you'd like to eat. Literally anything!
4. Listen to new music: This doesn't refer to the TOP 40 songs rotating on the radio. Step out of your comfort zone and into some rhythms and melodies that are foreign to your mind. Here are some playlists to consider:
5. Visualization practice: This is sort of a meditation. Sit in a quiet area, close your eyes and visualize yourself creating. Visualize where you are. What does it smell like? What are you creating? What is your wildest dream? Visualize it! Get deeper into this practice with this great article by Mike Dooley, author of Leveraging the Universe.
Well, there you have it. I hope this helps! And if you're interested in deepening your morning practice, consider our Master of My Universe journal below. Don't forget to enter "SISTERSISTER" at checkout for 15% off!
