One of my favourite things I like to do is create. A few years ago I was frustrated that I wasn’t creating as much as I had liked. I had been feeling that way for a few days and that is when I decided that I would do one creative thing a day. It helped me feel much better and as though I have achieved something every day. I haven’t missed a day yet.
I set myself simple rules to go along with my self-imposed rule and they are as follows.
- Whatever I create, must be finished in one day
- It can’t be anything that would take too long, such as a novel
- It doesn’t have to be the best thing I have ever done but I must be happy with it
I made it as simple as that.
The creative “thing” can be anything, a poem, a drawing, a short story, whatever, as long as it is creative.
If you enjoy being creative then I recommend giving this a go. I actually feel weird now, until I have created something.
