There aren’t too many traits that seem to be shared by all humans, but creativity seems to be one. Everyone on the planet is creative in one way or another, though, of course, to varying degrees. While some people seem to think they don’t have a creative bone in their body, the truth is that it just probably hasn’t been coaxed out of them yet. Some people have opportunities to present their creative side put right in front of them; others need to seek them out. If it’s been a while since you were creative, consider one of the hobbies below. You might just find that you’ve discovered a new passion.

Write It Out
Everybody can write, and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. It’s just that some people practice more than others. Writing is an outstanding medium because it’s so versatile: you can write about yourself, about others, a fictional story, play, poem, and many other options. If you’re relatively new to writing, then just have fun. People can tense up when they think that they have to present their work to other people. You don’t have to! The satisfaction you get from having produced something will be intoxicating.
Learn to Draw
How envy-inducing is it when you walk into someone’s home, notice a great work of art on the wall, and they tell you that they were the one who made it? It produces envy…but can also serve as an inspiration. As with writing, one thing that many people incorrectly believe is that they cannot draw. It comes more naturally to some people than others, but everyone can learn. Again, start small. Treat it as simply a fun way to spend a day, and then see where it leads. Who knows, pretty soon your home could be filled with works of art that you’ve created.
If you’re crazy about music, then you’ve probably got pretty specific tastes relating to what you like. And there’ll be times when you hear a track and just think: “I wouldn’t have added that bit to the song.” One of the things that prevent people from making their own music is the belief that you need to have a full band and multiple instruments to get started. This is not the case! It’s easy enough to make electronic music on your own, even if you don’t have a lot of experience. Indeed, this alesis v25 review specifically mentions how it’s suitable for beginner producers. Forget any ambitions about hitting the top of the charts; just focus on having fun. You might just end up making a track that becomes one of your all-time favorites.
And finally, what about making clothes? It’s easier than you think and can be a terrifically fun way to spend a day. You’ll be able to bring your sense of color and style to your wardrobe and might just end up with an item that becomes your go-to item when you want to turn heads.
