When I read a sentence like the title of this article I think to myself, “How CAN’T I be more innovative and creative at home?” But, I have been fortunate enough to be born a creative person. I realize some people are more creative than others but I believe all humans have the potential to tap into their creativity.
This article will help you do that. There are so many ways you can bring innovation into your home life and these suggestions are either for your use or, if they inspire an idea of your own great! Creativity and innovation is the key.
1. Pick Up A New Hobby
The nice thing about having a hobby is that it can take your minds off anything that you might want there. There are so many creative hobbies I don’t even know where to begin. We have woodworking, needlepoint, knitting, crocheting, welding, embroidery, and many others. You are surely able to find something that appeals to you.
A few pieces of advice before you run out and start a new hobby. You should first research it and make sure it’s something that works for you but most important. Try to stick with beginner supplies so you don’t waste a lot of money on professional equipment. If embroidery sounded good to you then try to get one of the top embroidery machines for beginners.
Wait to invest in professional equipment when you’ve honed your craft. Hobbies bring out the creative side in us and, before you know it, you’ll be finding all kinds of creative ideas for your home.
2. Try Some New Foods
Everyone has their favorite things to eat. Pizzas are popular as are sandwiches, but even those are general terms for a wide range of possible meal options. Tacos are a versatile food item as well.
Yet our favorites tend to take the center stage, especially when we are making meals in your kitchen. A fun way to get creative at home is to start making some new dishes for dinner or whatever meal you are in charge of constructing.
Never had spaghetti squash? You’d be surprised how good it is with cheese or pasta sauce. Always wanted to try an avocado but don’t know what to do with it. There are ample videos and tutorials on the internet that will teach you how to peel one and they make everything from salads to sandwiches tastier.
The idea here is to try something you might normally not. This exercise will not only stimulate the creative senses in the brain, but it will excite your taste buds and open your horizons, which are wonderful steps toward being more creative.
3. Move Your Furniture Around
Redecorating a room is expensive, let alone an entire home. To get the creative juices flowing it’s always a good idea to get some change in your life. Women like to change their hair when things are getting boring and this is something that can easily be done in a home without spending a dime.
All you need to do is rearrange your furniture and suddenly your space will feel brand new. This change will be powerful in igniting creative energy in your brain. If you are used to the head of your bed being by the window move it to a part of the room where you can look out the window instead.
Subtle changes are important and a great way to start if you are planning on implementing bigger changes in your life.
Creative ideas flow through our brains abundantly at times but other times we find nothing but blankness. Time spent meditating can lead you to the creation you are looking for. It can do this because it is designed to clear your mind with breathing exercises. Sometimes our brains get overloaded with daily things. Clearing it makes room for creative thinking to come in.
You don’t have to be an expert to meditate. Find a comfortable seat and sit with your back straight. This can be in a chair or on the ground with your legs crossed. Close your eyes and breath in while counting. Hold that breath for a moment and then exhale in the same amount of time. Meaning if you counted to eight breathing in, count to eight while breathing out.
Repeat this process while imagining your breath moving through your brain and out of your mouth. Along with that breath you should envision your thoughts, good and bad, leaving your body with your breath. After a few minutes, your mind should be clear and the creative ideas should start moving in.
Creativity doesn’t come easy for some of us. We have to find ways to inspire ourselves. The ideas we presented here should be successful with helping you find your innovation and creativity while at home.
