Being creative is an integral part of being a writer. Without creativity, our ideas dry up, we find it hard to concentrate, and we can’t get into that beautiful writing zone where the words seem to just flow freely from us.

Creativity, and being able to express that creativity is crucial and makes us happier, healthier and more motivated too!

However, even the most creative writers go through periods where they find it difficult for the inspiration to keep coming, and it is all too easy to get stuck in a downward spiral once that happens. For creativity doesn’t like to be pressured, and sometimes the more we try to be creative, the less we find it comes.

So what can we do to enhance our creativity and keep those ideas coming?

Get out there

It’s hard to find inspiration by just sitting in the same place day in day out. Grab your notebook and head out into the world, go for a walk, sit on a bus, head to a cafe. Write down everything that interests you and pay attention to the little details of things.

Listen to music

Music can be so inspiring. Create playlists of tunes that you know will uplift you, energise you and boost your mood. The effect of music to make us feel differently is powerful, so use it to your advantage.

Meditate or just be silent

Sometimes you just need to try and let go of everything, clear your head and just be silent for a while. Meditation is excellent for learning to relieve your mind and let go, so why not give it a try?

Get a second opinion

Talking things through can make all the difference so don’t be afraid to ask for help when you feel as though you are stuck with your writing. Bouncing ideas off someone else and just being around other creative people can leave you feeling inspired and motivated once more.

Have a glass of wine

This might not be for everyone, but having a glass of your favourite tipple can put you in just the right frame of mind to get writing once more!

Exercise

Exercise is known to release feel-good endorphins which will help you relax and feel positive and confident - essential ingredients when it comes to optimising your creativity.

Sleep

If we are sleep deprived, we are more likely to feel anxious, overwhelmed and stressed out. Make sure you get enough sleep to keep you feeling fresh and focused all day long.

Try something new

A new experience can leave us feeling exhilarated and creative. So if you are stuck in the same old routine doing the same things, perhaps it is time to shake things up a little.

Write down your problems

If you think you might be creatively blocked because you have other things on your mind try writing them down. Writing our problems down can put them in perspective, they also mean you have acknowledged them while allowing you to set them aside for a while so you can get on with your writing.

So there you have it, next time you are feeling a little creatively blocked, try these tips to enhance your creativity and soon you should get those creative juices flowing once more.
