Nurture And Cultivate Creativity
What is creativity and why is it so elusive? Simply put, it is the use of one’s imagination to create. Creativity is not activated by a light switch-like trigger. It comes at moment’s notice. Usually when you are not within the reach of paper and a pen to carefully jot down notes.
People often romanticize artistic minds. They believe in the concept that creatives are exceptionally gifted and receive instantaneous sparks of inspiration. That could not be further from the truth. If you want to get work done, then start working.
However, that can be difficult as it is often frustrating when we cannot seem to find the will or we find ourselves somehow mentally incapable of completing certain projects. One thing we can do is meditate. Meditation helps you to relax. A mind at ease is a mind that is open to different possibilities.
Not being able to spontaneously conjure up visionary work is seen as inhibition and a sure sign of having limited creative abilities.
But why do we get a creative block? Sometimes the neuroticism that creatives seem to share can just as easily be the bane of our existence, hampering us from getting results.
Stressors like anxiousness, which can be caused by things like quickly approaching deadlines, can contribute to a creative block.
Your artistic process comes from your ability to analyze, interpret and construct ideas. Meditation is an effective tool to help you achieve mental clarity.
Meditation helps you to lower your stress levels by having your mind focus on the act itself, rather than hindering thoughts. Focus and concentration seem to improve after mediation. The most common form of meditation, mindfulness meditation, has the individual focus on a singular thought. The goal is to have you maintain concentration while paying attention to your breathing.
This is what makes meditation effective for disciplined thinking. Creative minds need to stay focused in order to function efficiently. Studies of MRI scans have shown that mediation reinforces the connections between brain cells.
Meditation has worked as a mood regulator to create a balance between negative and positive emotions. This is especially effective and important for those with anxiety and depression-like symptoms. However, it is not a substitute for medical treatments.
Benefits are not immediate. To see results with meditation, you must have a routine. Practicing meditation for ten minutes every day can be advantageous.
It is best to think of meditation as a calm gymnastics routine – an acrobatic exercise for your mind. Training your mind and thoughts regularly will help you to develop control over your attention span and general mood.
