Journaling | Opening a notebook to blank page and writing down your thoughts and ideas is a great way to cultivate creativity. Pick a favorite place in your home, get comfortable just start to write. If you get stuck, Katie Dalebout has a wonderful book, Let It Out: A Journey Through Journaling, that is filled with prompts to get you started. I also find having a beautiful place to write your thoughts, like this lovely flower notebook, makes journaling even better.

Coloring | If journaling isn’t  your thing, then try a new adult coloring book. It’s so easy to get lost in in one an intricate design for hours and is a great stress reliever. There is a coloring book for everyone – Fantastic Cities to Flowers Coloring Book and even a Tattoo Coloring Book
