My tip this week is to MIX IT UP. Try something new even if you're bad at it. Especially if you're bad at it. Enjoy the process and laugh at your mistakes wink emoticon

Walking around in sweatpants is SO SUPER COMFY, but why not take advantage of your attire to get active? Get energized, jump around the room, run up the stairs and get your #CreativeGenius body moving wink emoticon

This week's tip is all about movement. There's no better way to spice up your day than to go somewhere you've never been. It doesn't have to be exotic, it could just be that cafe on the corner you've never gone into, or that neighborhood you've never biked through. If you're very fancy you might decide to up and go to Paris. For the rest of us, adventures close to home are as good as any!

Are you feeling stuck in your routine? A fun way to break out is to dress it up! Throw on your nice clothes, and take yourself out. Want to go one step further? Do what this person did and dress up your car to boot!

Take time to enjoy the little things in life: good coffee, clean sheets, fresh air, hugs - you get the idea ;)

Creative ideas have no sense of timing. They pop up at the oddest times and in the weirdest places, so make sure you always have a notebook (Or notebook app!) handy to record them before they flit off again.

Use public transportation to up your ‪#‎CreativeGenius‬! Public transportation gets you out in the world, meeting people and seeing things you might miss from behind your steering wheel. (Pro tip: Walking and biking are awesome too!)
