Ways to Stay Creative When You’re Stuck at Home
1. Dabble in a different medium – If you’re a writer, for example, you might think in words all the time and you sometimes find yourself stuck in a rut. To break the monotony, you can try your hand at painting to get those creative juices flowing. You may start by using watercolor and paints if you prefer to keep it simple. Experimenting how different colors merge together or how brushstrokes modify the texture of the watercolor on paper can be both calming and inspiring. The trick is to focus on the process rather than the final product.
2. Play tourist in your neighborhood – When you’re on a vacation, your senses are amplified, so you notice things like a lovely door or a particularly beautiful arrangement of plants on a doorstep. This time, do the same thing and take note of the beauty around you as you walk around your neighborhood.
3. Rearrange your surroundings – You may switch and move around treasured collectibles as your mood dictates, creating and changing small sceneries on your shelves. You can also rearrange or group your indoor plants. You may want to reorganise your books to make your favorite novels stand out too.
