There’s nothing like wanting to get artistic. When you’re in that creative state of mind, it can be a pure high in itself. You find yourself preparing whatever your artistic medium may be: pen and paper, computer, a canvas partnered with a palette of oil colors or chalks. It’s time to show your true colors in 2021 and beyond!
There’s also nothing like wanting to get creative … and suddenly finding yourself staring at a blank canvas, or a blinking cursor, or an empty sheet of paper. You stare. And you stare. And somehow, your artistic flow feels stuck. Blocked. It feels like your creative side is taking a long, lazy nap.
Chilling Out Helps Inspire Your Creative Side
Every artist, every type of creator, feels stuck sometimes. An important key to opening up the creative floodgates and getting “unstuck” is to let it go for a little while. Focus on something else completely.
You can let loose your inner artist by enjoying a soothing smoke break. Take out your dried herbs, pull a few rips, keep your mind calm. This all helps to reduce stress and promote a whole new flood of creative juices.
