7 Tips to Get into a Creative Flow

Exercises to Boost Your Mental and Physical Health

1. Practice Gratitude

Get into the habit of saying thank you.

2. Experiment

What would happen if you took another route to work? What if you made something new for dinner? Or got busy doing that Pinterest project?

Experimenting helps build new pathways of thinking in your brain.

Leaving you more sharp when you return with a new mind to daily functions.

3. Surround yourself with positive people

Easier said than done when you yourself have been the Debbie downer. Or perhaps your toxic work environment or partner keep you tied to the comfort of warm swampy waters.

“we are the average of the five people we spend the most time with.”

Think about that one.

4. Stick to healthy habits

What goes in comes out. Think about what you put into your body. What is it feeding? There are direct correlations between eating well and feeling good. Certain foods can boost brain power and make your system run more efficiently.

5. Play a game

Board games are a great way to relax, have fun, connect with others, and work your brain all at the same time. It’s a great way to break out of your routine too.

6. Get Physical

Exercise is the key to any healthy mindset. It boost your immune system, and is a sure fired way to get you out of a rut. As endorphins hit your bloodstream your mind opens up. Making it easier to receive new inspired creativity.

7. Restrict Screen Time

Bluntly, put your phone away. Delete the apps that don’t serve you. And put a time limit on your social media time. How fast does an hour go by when you are scrolling. Jumping from all your social media platforms. Seeing all the same things. This is not healthy.

Our Brains thrive on being in a creative flow.

So if you are sick and tired of being sick and tired all the time. If stress is taking you out of joy, start engaging your brain. Small changes done consistently will take your life in a new and exciting direction.
