How to be Creative during this Lockdown?
Just a few days ago, I had written an article on how to spend a productive quarantine period. The prime reason why I am focusing on these topics is because people are finding ways to spend their time. And when they do not find any way to spend time, people tend to go out. But why? When you yourself explore own creative ways to spend an effective time, you won't feel the need to go out at all. So I would like to give you all some tips and take aways on how can you explore your creativity and spend a creative time without getting bored.
1) Get back to your long lost hobbies
Developing all together a new form of creativity takes time to adapt. Then why not revive our own hobby? Due to work, job-life and hectic schedule, we could not pursue our hobby. We can get back that hobby again which we had left aside while running on the path of hustle.
Everyone pursues or used to pursue some or the other hobby. Those can be music, sketch, paint, write, read or something unique like collecting some unusual cutouts, creating digital art pieces and much more. Nowadays, youngsters have started pursuing this hobby of 'creating memes' on social media. These hobbies are a path to creativity.
2) Explore online
Google never fails to answer you! You can find multiple ideas on what can you do about the things you like. Considering an example, if you like to cook and are good at it, search online for some new recipes which can be made during lockdown. Devise your own modifications in those recipes. And those modifications can turn out to be new recipes all together! You are just one google search away to find and learn more in your field of expertise. You will get multiple ideas and you can combine them all to create your own new unique idea!

3) Put your thoughts down
Putting your thoughts down on paper or a notepad or simply typing them down on your phone, works like magic! Your thoughts are ways towards your newly blooming ideas. Give them an open door to develop your creativity. When you put your thoughts down, it becomes easy to segregate them into the beneficial ones and unnecessary thoughts can be filtered out. And then finally your resourceful or beneficial thoughts can turn into actions having creative ideas.
This habit has personally helped me a lot. I tend to get multiple thoughts on topics of writing mainly when I am going off to sleep. I simply put them down on my phone notepad and next day give a deeper thought to them to finally turn them out into an article.
4) Do not hesitate to try something new
Well, during this lockdown, I am learn to cook and I am really loving it! You will not know if you are good at it unless you yourself try it out. Do not hesitate to try new things. Who knows, those new things might turn into your favourite hobbies. It is never too late to try out what you really want to. I started writing poetries around 4 years ago and before that I had never even thought that I could be a poet. This is the magic of our brain. Your actions themselves will choose your creativity. It comes with trying.
The best aspect about creativity is that, it all depends on us how we be creative in our daily actions. Our own varied techniques and modifications can make us be creative in that particular thing. You can be creative in every second thing around you. Try it out! Tell me in the comments how are you being creative in your daily life.
