Creative Surroundings Inspire Passions

“It’s all about you and how your space makes you feel.”

“…It’s important to spend some time in a creative space so that you can remain in touch with your inner passions and creativity. This leads to a more balanced attitude and less stress in your life.”



There are many factors which can play into your success at getting in touch with your inner passion and creativity.

The desire to find out exactly what you want from your life is just the first step. Figuring out how to dig out those long buried passions and interests is another story.

While you are setting about the task of creating a vision board you may find yourself taking steps that will open you up mentally and allow you to relax and feel creative in order to find those inner desires.

Meditation, music and images can inspire you when you begin your vision board, but another thing that you may not have thought of is your surroundings.

Creative surroundings can inspire your passions. Whether you are happiest in a neutral room with peaceful colors and décor or prefer bright, vibrant items surrounding you, you can find out what creative surrounding work best for inspiring you by doing a little experimenting. This is similar to trying different kinds of music to decide which relaxes you most.

Indoors and out you can take the time to sit in a few different spaces, surrounded by different items to find out what makes you feel something.

Relaxation is good, but the urge to DO something is even better. Whether your surroundings make you want to sing or take a photograph, draw or write or just sit and daydream the idea is to find the ideal place for you to get in touch with your inner self.

Some people get in touch with themselves while they are relaxing, others need some stimulation in order to stir their creative juices.

No matter what sort of surroundings work for you the idea is to open your mind to all the possibilities and get into a place where you can see yourself working towards a goal of some sort.

When you think of creative surroundings you may feel that in order to be creative you should be surrounded by artworks but creative surroundings aren’t just about the décor, it’s about how it makes you feel.

So if your creative place is sitting on a tree branch in the woods listening to the birds sing, or in a window seat with sunlight streaming in, that’s wonderful. It’s all about you and how your space makes you feel.

Even if you’re not making a vision board it’s important to spend some time in a creative space so that you can remain in touch with your inner passions and creativity. This leads to a more balanced attitude and less stress in your life.
