Are you an artist? Musician? Yogi? Knitter? Everyone’s a little bit creative, and no matter what your outlet for creativity, we can definitely hit snags every now and again. I know I sure do. But here are 29 tips to help keep those creative juices flowing.
  1. Make lists. Write down what you need to do.
  2. Carry a notebook, just in case an idea hits you.
  3. Put the pen to paper and write literally whatever comes to mind.
  4. Step away from the computer (After you read this list!!)
  5. Don’t beat yourself up over snags.
  6. Take a break
  7. Sing in the shower. You’re a regular Yanni.
  8. Have a cup o coffee.
  9. Listen to some good music.
  10. Be open to new ideas.
  11. Surround yourself with lots of creative people.
  12. Get feedback! Don’t keep stuff bottled up.

  14. Never give up. Never surrender.
  15. Practice your art. You’re never too much of a master to practice.
  16. Don’t beat yourself up over mistakes. Let ’em happen.
  17. Try taking a trip someplace you’ve never been.
  18. Remember what blessings you have.
  19. Don’t keep yourself up all night. Get plenty of sleep!
  20. Take a risk now and then.
  21. Break those stupid rules.
  22. Don’t force your creativity. It’ll come.
  23. Read a page out of a book.
  24. Create the framework for future success.
  25. Don’t try to be anyone else, and definitely don’t strive for perfection.
  26. Write down your ideas! (see #2)
  27. Clean up your work space.
