These Ways Help Unleash Your Inner Artist in Your Home Studio
Life without creativity is boring. The monotonous cycle of work and responsibilities often result to stress, exhaustion, and burnout: something you would desperately want to ease at home after battling a long, tiring day, from work. Aside from physical rest and sleep, being preoccupied with creative activities involving arts and crafts may calm and give peace to your mind. These activities may be related to your hobbies and interests. Whether you love painting, immersing in yoga, or recording in your home studio, these personal amusements bring out the artist in you, hence deserving a special spot inside your place.
It’s easy being interested. However, staying interested and making your hobby an actual craft as an avenue to take your mind off things might be a little challenging. The Japanese culture holds a piece of advice worth imbibing, whenever an exhausting wall of burnout stopped you in your tracks or whenever you’re struggling to give birth to your artist within.
“If you try, you may succeed.
If you don’t try, you will not succeed. This is true for all things.
Not succeeding is the result of not trying.”
A Japanese proverb stemming from the Edo period, this short poem reiterates the similar ancient proverb in the 1640s: Where there’s a will, there’s a way. Remember, it doesn’t matter what type of art you’re starting to create. Put your mind to it, begin doing it, and the rest will follow.
How do you start? When’s the right timing? What elements do you need to get the perfect inspiration? In this article, we help you how.
Invest time in pursuing your hobby
You know there’s an artist within, but you’re not sure about the kind of work you can actually create. It’s simple – you will know when your hobby finally brings out your capabilities.
If you love gardening, blogging, or even skating – pursue it. Passion is something that is not easily present in doing a lot of things. When it comes naturally, take heed from it, shape it, and turn it into something big.
Did you know that the famous Starbucks coffee shop chain started as a small Seattle shop? It was founded by three scholars, which consisted of a writer, an English teacher, and a History instructor. For these academics, break time means coffee time. No wonder you always have the feeling of writing and being productive when inside a Starbucks café!
The creativity of the people behind Starbucks can be easily seen in their newly opened roastery in Milan. Check out the flash interiors of Starbucks Milano Reserve Roastery.
Don't think about the time it's going to take
Getting in touch with your inner artist and creating something from your passion is going to take time. Whenever the voice inside you complains – “There goes the rest of my free time”, “It’s hard to find the motivation to actually draw”, “This won’t teach me anything” – that’s the time to shut it down.
Breathe, relax, and take it all in. The greatest creations took a lot of time. Even Leonardo da Vinci took at least 4 years to finish Mona Lisa, his magnum opus – and there’s even a break in between.
ALLOW YOURSELF TO LET GO
Sometimes, the best of ideas come to us in unconscious ways. Losing yourself in the process is part of it, but even before that happens,a you must accept that it will be a process. There might be rejections, comments you won’t necessarily agree with, or a few brush-offs for your concepts. Let go of these, and do not fear them.
Letting go is growth. It is flexibility, and it is where you will thrive.
Create an environment your visionary self will flow in
Being one with your environment is a rare connection. A spiritual entanglement with the elements surrounding you will also help give your artistic soul a little push to come out.
Your condo workstation, or your home studio, for instance, will have to have decorations that boost your productivity and your inventiveness. The tones of your wallpapers, the textures of your carpet floors, and the flows of your curtain drapes – all must connive and conspire to stimulate and inspire your power to create.
As the famous Yoda saying goes, “Do. Or do not. There is no try.”
If you wish to connect and communicate to your dormant artist, help yourself realize it by continuously doing things. At your own leisure, do. It may sound easy, but this part will be the most complicated and most challenging. To battle out your counterproductive habits, to win over your fears, and to stand up and compete against yourself. It does not matter, though. Do, and you will connect with the artist within.
Jump. Run. Draw. Write. Sing. Dance. Move. Create.
Having your personal home studio inside your place is a dream come true for most. It needs to be stressed, though, that having your own quiet haven to dwell in is not an additional room – it is a necessity for the persona to achieve calm and creativity.
