5 Tips to make the most of your creative energy

I adore Gilda Radner, and second her emotion:

“I can always get distracted by love, but eventually I get horny for creativity.”

Without a doubt, creativity and sexuality tap into a shared life force. Keeping that in mind, here are a few tips for maximizing creative energy:

  1. When doing something creative, take your phone off the hook- or silence it
  2. Be in the moment- don’t think ahead or try to force the “outcome”
  3. Don’t be afraid to get messy
  4. Surprise yourself and be willing to go to unexpected places
  5. Be present
  6. Have fun


This is a simple exercise to help you appreciate your own creative force.  Let us know what you love to make, what brings you joy, what puts you in that happy place.


Examples: cookies, doodles, poems, beds, paintings, table arrangements, love, sand castles, you name it!
