Creativity: The use of imagination or original ideas to create something
I know I hammer on about the amazing power of creativity. But...
It does not mean that you have to be- or become an artist or a writer...
with Plenty of Creative space for me!
There are many ways to be creative
- be playful with your day
- plan little things that make you happy and you can achieve within your energy/pain limits
- make Sundays different from the rest of the week
- for example have a different breakfast from the norm
- do some colouring
- there are many adult colouring books out there now. Colouring from early on in the illness has helped me regain my finer motor skills, and I love it too.
- play to create a garden, or plant a few seed in a pot on the window sill. Growing things will bring joy
- find a craft you liked as a child, or something you always wanted to do
- I learned to weave, a long held dream fulfilled.
- enhance the immediate lived-in environment with thing you love
- hang pictures or photos of things you like
- the photo is of my greenhouse, I made a bed to rest on during spring days, and have a sculpture and some gifts from friends in there too
- collect different plates and cups to make each day special
- on days when I was bed bound my homehelp brought in snack and and drinks on a tray using a different set of plates and cups each day. It brought a smile to my face
- "Pimp" your mobility aids- to make them more fun
- Create a MEme - ME-me to get out an about for you
- buy the loveliest notebook and best pen you can afford to do some writing or drawing
- ... You get the idea... Now have Fun and Be Creative!
