The appreciation of color happens most frequently in two ways. First, if you see a color you like, you will gravitate into its orbit.

There is no reason for anybody not to be creative! The first thing to do is wear a smile. You don’t need a reason but just learn to do it. This sends a message to our brain to release hormones and impulses. Instead of feeling blase we now have new energy to be creative. Things like making homemade biscuits and gravy for breakfast instead of a bowl of corn flakes will be a normal event.

Some of the most creative ideas come from the time spent with family. If you have children, take the time to do special things with them. Make Christmas ornaments with their names on them so you can remember how little they were when they are older. Make videos and then give them to members of the family as gifts. Each week, go on a small family field trip. This could be going to see Christmas lights or going to a park and having a picnic. Cooking is another great way to be creative for the holidays. Find out what members of the family like to eat and then make a recipe book just for them. Include a picture on the cover of all the grandchildren or nieces and nephews.
Older people can also make the holidays creative. Go out to eat with friends who have no family in the area. Or rent a limo and take a trip to another city to go shopping. Stay young in the holiday season by getting involved with other people. A special thing you can do is having each grandchild over for a sleep over and making hot chocolate and cookies with them. Get warm and cozy while watching a movie, and spend time with the ones you love.
In order to become successful in creative cooking, you must be willing to experiment. By using different ingredients in your food, you are on your way to being a creative chef. This process requires patience as you experiment with many recipes that may not turn out so well. This is okay for creative cooking though because you continue to learn how to improve on your recipes for maximum efficiency. When you enter the world of creative cooking, you are differentiating your food from everyone elses. By continually experimenting with your recipes, your food will quickly become very enjoyable for Read the rest of this entry »
Sometimes the best way to ignite that creative spark is a nice change of scene. Whether you’re trying to come up with new and creative ways to decorate your home or you’re trying to solve a problem, sometimes we develop tunnel vision the longer we spend dwelling on something and the best thing for it is to just simply walk away.
We’re not talking about outright abandoning whatever has you stumped, just walking away for a bit. Maybe going out to the park, catching a movie or hitting up your favorite caf – regrouping in a sense so that you can return to the problem with a fresh set of eyes. Another thing that can help in this situation is having access to the internet.
Use your smartphone while you’re out and about, clearing your mind. Fire up that laptop and tap into the local bistro’s wi-fi or 4g mobile broadband internet. Again, as long as you’re not dwelling on the problem, you can devote your energies toward something else; maybe even inadvertently discovering the cure to what ails you.
Let’s face it – we all have our days. The muse of creativity doesn’t always pay us a visit or sometimes we have to meet her halfway. If you’re stumped by a problem or a lack of creativity, then consider walking away. Step out and refresh that old thinker. Even the brain needs a creative rest from time to time.

Uniqueness and originality on the job are not always appreciated. Showing creativity in certain fields can get a person into trouble. The Military does not want a sergeant who will interpret his orders in a creative way. At least it doesn’t want a Sargent that will interpret his orders in a creative way who does not succeed. For other jobs, finding new ways to look at old problems is a must, but people often lose their creative edge. Renewing a person’s creative spark takes an effort. Burnout, age and simple exhaustion can cause Read the rest of this entry »
