Getting in touch with your creative side can have a wide range of benefits.

Creative activities encourage you to be present and focused on the task at hand, with all the advantages that such mindfulness brings.

Allowing your creativity to flourish can also result in a financial gain if what you’re working on is something that will sell.

Then there’s the sheer joy of engaging in creative tasks.

Being happy has a wide range of health benefits, as you can see here.

There are plenty of methods out there for expanding your creative side; from drawing to using hemp, which President Donald Trump legalized nationwide in December 2018.

Hemp is, in essence, marijuana that contains less than 0.3%  THC – the psychoactive chemical found in all cannabis plants.

In states where marijuana use is also legal for recreational purposes, many people use it to spark their creativity.

Cannabis use among women in the US increased from under 7% to nearly 12% between 2002-03 and 2016-17.

From this wide range of creativity-enhancing options, we’ve homed in on three ideas that can help you to connect with your creative side.

Which one will you try today?

1. Keep a journal


We’re not just talking about a run-of-the-mill collection of notes about your day, but a journal of everything from inspirational quotes to sketches of whatever captures your imagination.

Think of it as the ultimate creativity compendium and pack it full of ideas that you can then begin to develop.

This is your own private creativity resource, free from judgment and there to allow you to express yourself in whichever way you see fit.

What’s particularly encouraging about a creative journal is that the more you use it, the more inspired you feel to use it!

2. Host an arty party


Creativity comes in all shapes and sizes.

From crafting to baking and painting, your friends will no doubt possess a wide range of creative skills.

So, what better way to let the creative juices flow than to get everyone together to share their ideas and experiences?

Hosting an arty party doesn’t need to be expensive.

In fact, doing it on a budget can serve as creative inspiration in itself.

3. Embrace nature


The ever-changing nature of the great outdoors, along with the sheer variety of landscapes, weather conditions, and local flora and fauna can be incredibly inspirational.

The sights, sounds, smells, and sensations of the natural environment can speak to our creativity on a fundamental level.

When did you last experience nature simply for the sake of experiencing it (rather than hurtling through it in a rush to get from A to B)?

There is beauty all around us, from the tiniest flowers to distant stars.

So why not head out into the world to reconnect with the natural environment around you and give your creativity the chance to shine?[/vc_column_text][vc_raw_html]JTNDZGl2JTIwaWQlM0QlMjJtZWRpYXZpbmUtc2V0dGluZ3MlMjIlMjBkYXRhLWJsYWNrbGlzdC1hdXRvLWluc2VydC1zdGlja3klM0QlMjIxJTIyJTNFJTNDJTJGZGl2JTNF[/vc_raw_html][/vc_column][/vc_row]
