“Life is short, and it’s up to you to make it sweet.” – Sadie Delany
Hey Beautiful people I recently took myself on a getaway to literally get away. I needed to give my creativity a jumpstart. Alone time that is not driven by fear or avoidance but rather the pleasure you experience in solitary activities can inspire your creativity.
I have a few reasons why:
Temporary social disconnection can help you to get lost in your work. When you eliminate distractions and put all of your focus on what you are trying to accomplish you are able to boost your productivity.
Spending time outdoors with nature can also help you eliminate creative roadblocks. If you have an idea you can’t figure out how to get from your head, take a break step outside, take a walk, go to the beach, listen to the waves, take everything in.
Catch a flight and go. Traveling abroad has been proven to help you get your creative juices flowing too. The farther you travel from your home the more creative you become! I know you’re probably saying how girl? Well here you go:
Traveling helps you to be open-minded as you meet new people and come across new situations.
Traveling helps you to be innovative if you truly immerse yourself in the culture and country you’re visiting.
Traveling also helps to build your self confidence by strengthening your self worth.
I hope if you find yourself stuck in some way you will consider spending some time alone, connecting with nature and/or catching a flight somewhere new.
