1. Write in a Journal

2. Take an Artist’s Date

If you’re always stressed out and in a combative mood, it’s almost impossible to sit down and do the deep work required for creativity.

3. Go For a Walk

The walk functions as a metaphor for life’s journey. No challenge in the world cannot be solved by putting one foot in front of the other.

4. Meditate

5. Anthropomorphize Your Inner Critic

Resistance, is a useful signal. Whenever you hear its telltale grumblings, it signals you are on the right path.

6. Read Mantras to Yourself

7. Write Down Your Creative Goals
