    • Hi Jyoti

      Welcome to my blog! I am happy to see you here and to know that you enjoyed the post and the infographic. I agree there is so much power in writing. I often compare it to the artist who reflects his thoughts and words through his painting. Same way the writer paints his soul in the form of writing.

      Thanks for your wonderful contribution and welcome you to stop by again soon. Cheers! 🙂

  2. Hi Yvonne!

    This was a really helpful post with lots of tips on how to stay creative. Sometimes we have so many duties that we forget to be creative, even it is so very important. And for some kind of work it should even be the main focus.

    Thanks for the reminder, Ilka

      So glad you took the time out to stop by and to join in the discussion. Good to know that you found the post helpful and that it inspired you as well.

      We are living in times where it seems no matter how we try, we are constantly on fast forward trying to get work done that as you rightly said, we forget to be creative. I am so guilty of that 🙂
      It is good though to slow down, re-energize so that we can discover that unique gift of creativity that each one of us was born with.

      Have a blessed day and a great week ahead. Keep smiling 🙂

  3. Hi Yvonne,

    That was a lovely infographic post, perhaps the first one shared on this blog 🙂

    It surely does tell us various ways to stay creative, the best being to take it easy and that’s exactly when the real creative juices tend to flow, isn’t it? Thank goodness for the weekends, so we manage to get a break as well, or else we’d keep working round the clock, the workaholics we’ve become!

    I usually switch off for a few hours and do things out of the ordinary, and they are like a deliberate reminder for me to connect with other things than blogging…lol…I need to!

    Thanks for sharing this with us. Have a nice weekend 🙂

    • Hi Harleena

      I am so happy for weekends for sure – it’s the only time that I am able to unwind, get the creative juices flowing again and even spend time with myself. I have a tendency to just work so hard during the week and seldom get time to do the things that I really want to do. 🙂 It is also when I get a little time to socialize on other blogs

      It’s all about finding creative ways to do things. Have a superb weekend! 🙂
