Episode 7. Feeding your creative brain
Updated: Mar 10, 2022
Being creative is not a passive process, creativity isn’t born out of the void. To get creative, we need to feed and stimulate our brain. But where do we start, especially when our energy and concentration levels aren’t as high as they used to be? In this new episode of the Creativity for All Podcast, I look at what makes us creative, even in the most stressful of times, and how to nurture and nourish our own creative potential in a kind, compassionate and strategic way.
ABOUT THE CREATIVITY FOR ALL PODCAST
A maths teacher can be creative. So can a financial adviser, a community builder, and a yoga teacher. Not to mention a speed painter, a potter, or an actor!
Creativity is everywhere and I love nothing more than to explore it in The Creativity for All Podcast, either by focusing on a theme – such as perfectionism, feeding your creative brain, or the pressure to be creative – in my solo episodes, or through my conversations with all manner of creative people.
I want to challenge the perception of creativity and, in the process, debunk many myths attached to it: it's painful, for artists and the chosen few, etc.
My guests and I are keen to zoom in and dissect the origin of an idea, the impulse that makes us engage with our own creativity, with the hope that it will inspire listeners to get creative too.
My podcast is designed for anyone who’s already being creative, or is tempted to use their creativity, in particular those of you who think they are not creative or can never be. I would love to change your mind!
