Mom Needs a Break: How to Take a Break & Boost Your Creativity at the Same Time!

Taking breaks is important – they are brief moments to recharge throughout the day. As a busy mom, I often have to multitask in order to get more done. Sometimes multitasking isn't productive, but there are times when it's useful. 

When taking breaks, I try to cultivate my creativity at the same time. Creativity is a powerful force in our lives. By definition it is the use of imagination and original ideas. Creative thinking helps us see things from a new perspective and find multiple ways to approach a problem. Creativity is the fuel that can move us along our journey, whether that journey is starting a businesswriting a book or redefining a relationship. Here are few ways to take breaks that boost your creativity: 

  • Coloring. There are so many great adult coloring books available!
  • Listen to new music to get your creative juices flowing. 
  • Look at an object and think of one new way it could be used. A cup might be used as a hat. A shoe might be used to carry sand. There are no wrong answers!
  • Go outside and be inspired by nature.

How can you infuse creativity into your breaks?

Great tip, Kandice Cole ! Yesterday I got to my breaking point. I set everything aside and went for a walk. It was exactly what I needed. I came back ready to tackle more challenges!
