Creative aliveness

Creative aliveness

Creative aliveness consists in reclaiming a larger creative canvas woven into the fabric of our lives.

It starts by asking yourself: what makes you come alive creatively? And how can you inject more creativity into your daily life?

The flow of creativity

In modern Western and Eastern cultures, creativity is now understood as deeply embedded in the fabric of daily life.

From something that is exclusive to higher-level entities, whether deities or nature itself, it has evolved into an ability anyone can practice at various levels, whether it is to create art or to perform small acts of innovation as part of the ever-changing movement of the world we inhabit.

But, somehow, this creative aliveness is not what most of us experience in our daily lives.

Living a creative life

Living a creative life

The biggest creative canvas is our own life. The possibilities are practically infinite, the tools at our disposal are many, and each person we connect with opens the door to a potential creative collaboration. However, life can get so busy we end up squeezing our creativity into a tiny canvas — small, pre-defined spaces such as an art class or a brainstorming session.

Instead of constraining our creativity to these bounded containers, creative aliveness elevates our day-to-day experiences by considering each moment as an opportunity for curiosity and innovation.

What makes a creative mind?

A creative mind is:

  • Connected. A creative mind is connected to people who stimulate their imagination, to networks that foster collaboration, and to sources of content that provide them with interesting information.
  • Curious. Curious minds tend to question the obvious, consider alternative answers, and consistently dig one level deeper to get to the core of how things work.
  • Courageous. While creativity doesn’t have to be grandiose, it requires stepping into the unknown and sometimes taking bold risks with limited knowledge of the potential outcomes.

How to practice creative aliveness

How to practice creative aliveness

  • Make space for unstructured creativity. You don’t need to create something useful or beautiful. In fact, you don’t need to produce anything at all.
  • Consider each interaction as a creative playground. Let creativity permeate each moment of your life, whether you interact with a person, a piece of content, or a problem you want to solve.
  • Write as an act of self-creation. Journaling allows you to not only document but also to shape your mind and thus your life. It’s a powerful way to turn life into a creative adventure.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

samz905

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
