The 10 Day Creativity Challenge to Juice Your Creative Mind:
Day 1: Organize before bed by cleaning off surfaces you use every day such as your bathroom counter, kitchen counter and work area. Expectation: That by clearing off these areas, you will free some space in your brain the next day.
Day 2: Make up your own words with definitions and start using them in your everyday language. Expectation: A feeling of empowerment, freedom and fun. Get your brain thinking in a whole new way. Share your words and definitions and we will start using them in the show!
Day 3: Create your personal mantra and repeat before you face anything challenging or scary. Expectation: This creative exercise will help you zero in on a your strength so you can tackle life's uncomfortable moments where all the magic happens. Your mantra is yours and nobody else's. You don't have to share it with anybody.
Day 4: Glue Googly Eyes on Something Expectation: It seems silly, but this is a low-stress way to transform an ordinary object into something completely different. It will also make you smile and probably lots of other people too. Happiness is a good petri dish for creativity to grow.
Day 5: Spend Ten Minutes Talking to Somebody and Showing Genuine Interest in Them. Expectation: Sometimes, we need to slow down and listen with intention to something other than our busy mind and the internet. Listen hard and see what you learn.
Day 6: Take Us To YouVille! Invent your own town named after YOU! (ex. Jellyville) Then, think about the laws and/or qualities of the town that reflect you. What attracts people to Youville? Expectation: It's fun to think about running a town. What attracts people to YouVille, probably attracts people to you and that will be reflected in your art.
Day 7: Spend 10 Minutes Listening to A Podcast or Book that Someone Else Recommends Expectation: To open your mind to new experiences while connecting with someone you know by showing interest and respect for something that left a strong impression on them.
Day 8: Wear A Conversation Piece: Something That Is Likely To Attract Strange Looks, Comments, & Questions Expectation: Nobody remembers average. Lets be memorable and comfortable in our own skin. Sometimes caring too much about what people think suffocates our true voice.
Day 9: Choose One Body Weight Exercise such as squats, lunges, push ups, etc and do as many reps as you can. Take that number of reps and repeat 9 more times throughout the day. Expectation: Exercise produces endorphins and those brain chemicals work in mysterious ways to boost our brain power.
Day 10: Cut Up A Box Of Food From Your Pantry And Make A Poem Or Flash Fiction. Expectation: By not having to come up with the actual words, you can have fun arranging words in a way that appeals to you. You will also get rid of some processed food along the way.
