Best cure for creative block: Kids

Last week my cousine, her kids and I went to an open recykling workshop at our local cultural centre “Kulturmagasinet”. And let me tell you my creativity has been at a low point for quite some time now but playing with kids and just letting go of all the preassure of creating professionally, sure did the trick. We played with colors, glued stuff on stuff and just went crazy with it. We had a blast and there were no time to think.. Only time to feel.

And since then my creativity has been blooming. Know any kids around you? Set up a crafts day and see what happens! Worst case scenario you will have paint everywhere so make sure you got the right clothes for it. Rock on’ ♡

The fastest way to creativity…

The fastest way to open up to creativity is to doodle. No matter if you are a painter, a musician or a banker when you doodle you activate the right side of the brain. It’s a great idea to doodle when you are not thinking about it, like when you are speaking on the phone or are at a cafe with friends. When you do something creative and let go of all of your thoughts you get into a flow state of mind which is a very good form of active meditation.
