7 Ways to Stay Creative

1. Be Open. Learn Something New.

No matter what kind of creative you are: A writer, an artist, music artist, you have to keep an open mind of learning something new. Don't be the one trick pony.

Skillshare is a great way to learn something new to enhance your business or creative skills without the cost of college tuition.  Enrolling on-line is really easy and the cost per month in learning from professionals across all industries of creativity is worth it.

2. Collaborate with other creatives

You can't do it all by yourself.  Collaboration can not only increase your creative juices but also introduce you to another kind of audience and increase your followers on both sides.  It's a win-win!People Need People.

3. Keep your creative space clean

4. Go Somewhere New

You don't have to go far unless you want to take the planned vacation that you have been meaning to take. This could be as simple as taking a different route to your day job.  Go to the museum on a weekend, a walk in the park and get into nature.  You'll be surprised at how quickly inspiration comes to you.

5. Create your own creative manifesto

If you're serious about your creative business, create your very own creative manifesto that you follow and hold it to its highest standard.  Sort of a like a rule book or code of conduct. 

6.  Be Observant. Mediate. Exercise

Get away from your possible rut and go work out.  Meditation is also an amazing way to get silent and manifest some wonderful ideas.

7.  Have fun!

I like to ask myself on any art project or commission work that I'm asked to do how fun is this going to be for me  The point of being creative is to create something that you could literally have fun doing while getting paid.  Time is money and you might as well have fun doing what you love instead of wasting time doing something that you are really not into.
