What have you done to ignite your creativity today?
It’s not too late! You can easily flex your creative muscles, even a few minutes before sleep. All you have to do is close your eyes and open your mind.
Here are three effortless things you can do daily to spark your imagination.
Relive Something You Experienced Today
Think of something you have experienced today. It doesn’t have to be anything grand: something that captured your attention on the street, fragments of an interesting conversation you overheard, or something nice someone said to you.
Relive it. Recreate the setup, what you saw and sensed, and what you felt and thought. See this moment in your mind and look beyond it. Imagine the people and the places beyond what you saw.
Think of Something You Would Have Changed
Now, think of something you experienced today that you would have changed if only you could. Imagine how it would have unfolded if you could go back in time and do things differently.
It doesn’t have to be anything dramatic. Imagine how things could be different if you had a different lunch or left work one hour earlier. Let your imagination go wild and live this alternative experience as a real memory.
Plan an Experience for Tomorrow
Finally, think about what you are going to do tomorrow. Imagine something that can fit into your schedule and spice up your day — something that will make this day memorable.
Plan it in detail with the intention of acting upon it. This is your opportunity to make tomorrow special. So be sure to seize it!
