What does it mean to live a creative life. Woman painting a cup

In this episode, I talk about what it means to live a creative life, and share some insights from my own creative practices.

There are a number of scientific studies that highlight the importance of creativity, but based on my conversation with people both offline and online, I’ve found that we are fast becoming a generation of content consumers rather than content creators.

While there is nothing wrong with consuming content, we do need to also create content – which involves flexing our creative muscles – if we want to live a life of meaning. Having a creative practice is also an excellent way to deal with the stress and grind of our daily lives.

As I mentioned in this episode of the Art with Soul podcast, I’m pointing you to some resources on how you can create beautiful art journal pages in just 10-15 minutes a day.

First up is this art journal page that I created in just 2-minutes a day. This page was created as part of a 7-day speed art Instagram challenge, which really brought home the fact that art doesn’t have to take up all day.

And here’s some inspiration for 10-minutes of art journal play.

Now you really have no excuse to not create some art! And I’m pretty sure that these ideas can be adapted to almost any creative practice – except cooking or baking, maybe!

So let’s flex those creative muscles!

  1. Art in 10 mts sounds more tedious to me than relaxing; I think its the perfectionist in me who would stress over making it just right. But its a great idea if stress levels can be controlled and I am wondering do I dare take it up 🙂

  2. Art journals are indeed a wonderful way to give vent to your creativity, or indulge in a creative activity. I usually begin my work hours with a doodle, or an artwork. How wonderfully calming it feels!
    I liked your idea of 2 mins art pages. Best way to relieve stress!
