I discovered a site (that is new to me) called, The Creativity Workshop which has an interesting variety of informative articles. The first post that caught my interest is Time to Nourish Our Creativity written by Shelley Berc. I like what she says about taking short segments of time to feed our creativity.
"Taking time for twenty minutes of creative exploration each day can bring our imaginations alive and keep them inspired while we go about the rest of our lives....Twenty minutes a day......feeds the unspoken longings of our soul. For it is the soul that suffers most when we don’t let ourselves create. Our soul needs to have play-time in the world of pretend, which is a deeply focused and meditative place."
"Creativity and play clear our beings and give us energy to live. Twenty minutes a day of writing whatever comes to your mind, or drawing the vase of flowers that sits forgotten on the window sill, or turning up the music and dancing your heart out. When creative expression is accessed every day even for the shortest periods of time, it becomes stronger and more resilient, just like any muscle."
Take a few minutes to read the rest of Berc's article for more ideas.
