One of our favorite tips to fuel your creativity?

FEEL something! Watch an inspiring movie, turn on music that speaks to you, see a live performance, or explore a museum and take in the art. Mindfully consuming others’ creative work -- especially if it’s different than yours -- can move you to expressing your own self in a brand new way.

Be mindful of what inspires you -- what really speaks to you? And then seek after those things.

We often talk about the importance of creating rather than consuming. But maybe we need to give more attention to the idea of mindful consumption of really amazing art. And maybe the problem is in consuming too much information instead of art.

Consuming art can inspire you to take action. A great question to ask yourself is, “What’s the person I want to be and what kind of things should I consume to help me be that kind of person? “
