How To Develop Your Creative Side To Get You Ready For Summer

Now I've always seen myself as a creative person and creative things have just come naturally to me, but there are some of us who feel we do not have a creative bone whatsoever in our body. So this article is for you.

I wanted to share with you some tips and advice to help you get creative and to show you that being creative is not as hard as you think.

Below are some pictures of some of my creative projects, why don't you give it a go?

Everyone has a creative side although sometimes it is hidden and does not come to the surface quite as quickly as it does to others, however you can develop creativity by digging deep and practising, searching for your creative side and bringing it to the forefront.

Here are some top tips for helping you to draw out your creative side and expand on your creativity.

Create Lists

You can expand your creativity greatly and get that side working by making up a list whenever you have a problem which needs some creative thinking, list down as many ideas as you possibly can for solutions and let your creativity flow.

Make Changes in Your Life

Sometimes we can get a creative block if we are stuck in a rut, make some changes to our daily life to get the channels flowing again.

Work on the Bad Ideas

Even if you are only coming up with bad ideas you are still being creative so work on the bad ones and develop them, whose to say it is a bad idea anyway, it could turn into a great idea and solution to your problems.

Work in a Great Group

Working in a group and brainstorming together is a great way to develop creativity.

Challenge Yourself and Others

If you challenge yourself by telling yourself you can’t do something the way you always have done it, you will then have to think of new ways to get around the problem which can lead to some very creative suggestions.

If you are stuck for ideas for a solution then keep a pen and paper handy and let your imagination clear and doodle ideas on the paper, it’s surprising what you will come up with if you free your mind this way.

Encourage the Thinking Side of Your Brain

The right side of your brain is where the creativity starts so give it a jolt and wake it up by activating using the left side, try breathing out using only your left nostril a few times.

Hire a Life Coach

If you feel your creativity is truly depleted then consider hiring a life coach to help you find it, a life coach can help you to establish the areas where your creativity is lacking and work with you to strengthen it.

Think Like a Child

Let go of all your adult obligations, stresses, strains and worries and go back to your childhood, children have the best imaginations and their creativity knows no bounds, think like a child when you are stuck for creative ideas and they will soon flow freely once again.


Creativity can often become depleted if we are under great stress, learning a relaxation technique not only makes you feel better but can help to clear your mind, give you a fresh start and get your creative side flowing again.

Use Some Mind Games

Keep a few mind games to hand such as logic puzzles, by taking your mind off your problem and solving a puzzle you are using your brain and using your brain leads to positive and creative thinking.

Now try it for your self you be surprised what you might create.....
