Life In 'Cruces - Creative Mindset

You are are the bomb!

The new year is here and 2023 is all about creativity. Being creative is the best stress relief. Being creative is also the best hobby. In order to really be creative, you have to develop a “creative mindset”. Ohh...this is not hard. All you have to do is open your mind to accept new ideas and new ways to express yourself.

But this new way of thinking can't just be done once. You have to consistently keep your mind open and be willing to take risks and try new creative channels.

So let's get want to adopt this way of thinking as part of your overall self-care routine. It is all about living stress-free. One question to ask yourself is what do you like to do that is calming? Do you like to paint? Draw? Color? If you want, pick all three things and do them regularly. There are no limits to creativity.

A creative mindset is all about trying new things and new ideas. Taking creative risks is fun. Take up sewing if you have always desired that hobby but feared the risk. Start by checking out some videos on YouTube and then practice sewing by hand. You don't have to run out and buy a sewing machine. All you need is some fabric, a needle, and some thread. If you don't like sewing after the first few times, move on to something else. It is all about trying something new and opening your mind.

The key to this new mindset is jumping out of your creative comfort zone. Other creative outlets include journaling – on paper, on the computer, or by video; painting – watercolor or another medium; paper crafting; photography; making videos; and scrapbooking. These are just a few creative ventures you can try.

Most creative ventures don't cost anything. Try photographing using your existing camera or smartphone. Run outside and photograph or film nature or your surroundings. If this creative hobby is relaxing or enjoyable...there you go.
