The Creativity Challenge: Five Minutes of Creativity a Day

Alyson Swihart Brewing Creativity The Creativity Challenge

I don't know about you, but somewhere I put my creativity on the back burner. To-do lists have become a priority and creativity has been left out on the porch on a rainy day. I know creativity is essential to Brewing Your Best Life. And so, I'm here to put myself on blast. It's time to get more creative. Over the next few days and weeks, I'll be experimenting with creativity.  I vow to do something creative for at least 5 minutes a day.  If I can, you can too!

Creativity reduces anxiety and stress.  I know that as I create, I am escorted into another world.  All my worrying and self doubt melt away, and I am completely present in the moment. That's why I started making soap, to stop thinking about my classroom (I'm a retired teacher). Lo and behold, it turned into a business, though, the first two years, soaping was my sanity.

Creativity doesn't have to be a BIG thing.  It can be as small as drawing stick figures, playing with playdoh with your toddler, or writing a letter to a friend.  The most important thing is just to get started and create something that works for you!

So, today I start five minutes of creativity a day.  Who's with me?
