Day 3: Stretch Yourself

Hold for Video

Welcome to day 3 of your 7 Day Creativity Reset Challenge!

If you haven’t already left your comfort zone, get ready because you’re about to try something new. Creative inspiration comes when we stretch ourselves without any expectation. In this case, I want you to try something new today, maybe that’s cooking a meal from scratch, or knitting, or reading a different kind of book, or signing up for a ceramics class. It can be as little or as big as you want it to be. Did you just start to get anxious about time? Recognize that and let it go, now.

Good, let’s carry on…

The point of this exercise is to stretch ourselves daily, so we can be less fearful of trying new things in our lives. Remember how bold and fearless you were as a child? We want to channel that energy. When we try something new, we have a beginners mindset, a mindset so sought after when we are in a creative rut because we can see clearly without judgement.

Ask yourself what you have always wanted to try? Honour the first though that comes up during our guided meditation below.

Example

If I choose to cook a plant based meal from scratch, I will continue cooking 1 meal from scratch everyday for at least the rest of this course. Or, try something different every day such as cooking today, and sewing tomorrow, and painting greeting cards the next day etc.
