Mind and spirit practices can help you increase your mental clarity, be more creative and think outside the box. It can also help you to connect to your inner power and strengthen your intuition.

But how do we really breakdown this somewhat vague and huge area of our life? 

Here's my little guideline list:

  • be aware of the physical environments and periods of day I'm creative and with high energy

  • surround myself with creative inspiration and friends

  • bring creativity to my work and to relationships

  • be aware of things that I’m not necessarily “good“ at

  • ignore the voice of my inner critic when necessary

  • appreciate the creative talents & contributions of others

  • know ways to get me unstuck in situations

  • know how to relax and have fun

  • take a break when necessary

  • find the good in others and let them know if given a chance

  • have a rewarding life beyond my work or profession

  • have a little something to look forward to daily

  • be aware & fully take care of all emotional problems you have

  • take evenings, weekends and holidays off

  • start my day right with a morning routine

  • establish an evening routine, prepare for the next day

  • laugh out loud

  • play like a child and/or with a child or with a pet

  • listen to healing music or music I enjoy
