Do you feel like you are constantly running from one thing to the next, juggling work, the family, the house, staying healthy, keeping fit – the list goes on and on. Being on the go all the time begins to take its toll really fast if you don’t take the time to care for yourself. Not just eat your three meals a day and take the time to sleep, but really caring for you and replenishing your energy sources. So, we have come up with the best way to fill your cup and spark your creativity.
Filling Your Cup
The saying goes that you cannot pour from an empty cup. How can you keep on giving if you have nothing left to give?
There is a reason that the airline tells you to put your own oxygen mask on before you help anyone else. That reason is that you are useless if you aren’t operating at full capacity.
Full capacity does not just mean your body operating physically well, it means your mental wellbeing also. You need to take the time to replenish your energy sources on a regular basis.
Would you say that you are a creative or not? To be honest, it doesn’t really matter. Everybody has an element of creativity in them, even if you don’t consider yourself a painter, a writer, or an inventor. Creativity is an outlet, it makes life infinitely interesting and fulfilling. It allows you to embrace originality and think outside the box.
Creativity allows you to see the world in new ways, to look at things from another perspective and to come up with different solutions. It can be the colour in your life, so it is important to find ways to spark your creativity on a regular basis.
How Can I Do It?
There are lots of ways that you can boost your wellbeing and allow your creativity to flow. Here are some ideas…
Take Time For You
It is unlikely that time for you will just fall in your lap. So it is important to make time for self-care. Even if it means scheduling time in your diary, or making an agreement with your family that you get time every week for you.
Spend that time doing things that you love to do, that are just for you. Exercise, yoga, or meditation are wonderful ways to clear your mind. But sitting in the sunshine with a cup of tea is just as good for recharging your batteries if that is what you prefer.
Try Something New
There is no better way to spark your creativity then trying something new. A brand new setting, an unknown activity, and the fun that comes along with it. It opens your mind to thinking in new ways, and when you succeed, your cup gets a great top up.
Set a Challenge and Complete It
It is such a satisfying feeling to tick things off your to do list, so why not set yourself a challenge in creativity or self-care. Working towards an end goal will help you stick to your plan, and the satisfaction you get at the end is unbelievable!
