In order to regain your creativity, you first have to find it. To do that you must sift through your thoughts. The best way to do this is journaling. Every day, preferably in the morning before you start your routine, write a few pages in a journal. Let the thoughts flow freely as you’re not looking to find anything in particular. This will help clear your mind of the stress, clutter, daily lists and thoughts that are getting in the way of your creativity.
Even if you feel like you have nothing to say, write. If you have to write, “I don’t know what to write” until a thought comes, then do that. Write 2-3 pages every day. This daily journaling will become a meditation practice, as you are clearing out your mind and allowing creativity to enter.
Try writing every day for two months then track your creative process. Do you find yourself yearning to be more creative? Did you pick up your old guitar again? Find time to start a blog? Buy new paints?
It may surprise you what daily journaling can do for your mind.
