As bloggers, I think most of us would consider ourselves to be at least somewhat creative people. We show up here every day and write and share and discuss. Some of us have even been at it for years, and at times I think it's totally natural to 'run out of ideas' or become uninspired. This always strikes during the winter for me. Life is slower and quieter and it's so dang cold out that we're all just hunkered down inside (watching Netflix). I have to work to keep myself inspired and I have a feeling I may not be the only one that suffers from the winter blahs!
Here are a few of my favorite ways to stay creative when I'm not always feeling it...
Carry a notebook everywhere with you to jot down ideas
Step away from the screens - the phone, the computer, the TV
Get some fresh air
Listen to different music
Browse a magazine
Spend time with other creatives
Sweat it out
Move to a new surrounding - a different room in your house or a coffee shop
Ask for feedback from readers
Don't force it - take a day off instead of putting up a mediocre post
Clean or organize your workspace
Drink a tall glass of water
Collaborate with other bloggers
Write out a list of your blessings
Set a 30 minute timer and free write
Pick up fresh flowers for your desk
