Self expression is so important. Everybody should feel free to express themselves. In a world where many of us work doing something we hate for a living, expressing ourselves with our creativity is a must. It releases stress, pent up energy, and helps us to understand our feelings more. The following fun ideas will help you to express yourself if you’re unsure of what to do right now:
Drawing, Colouring and Painting
Drawing, colouring and painting are all great activities for when you want to express yourself creatively. You don’t need to be the next Picasso or anything; you could just doodle for a while, or colour a ready made picture. Colouring mandalas is actually highly recommended for stress relief and meditation.
Singing, Writing Songs, Playing An Instrument
Singing, writing songs and playing an instrument can really help people to let off steam. This is a great way to express exactly what you’re feeling. Whether you want to let out sadness, anger, or the fact that you’re ridiculously happy doesn’t make a difference. Get creative and see if you can make any musical masterpieces.
It doesn’t matter if you don’t think you’re very good at dancing. Put on some of your favourite music and get moving! This is a great way to lift up your vibrations and your mood. Go to a class if you want to learn how to dance. You might develop a great new skill. You’ll never know if you don’t try.
Why not get into the habit of taking pictures of the most beautiful things in life? Selfies don’t count! You could take pictures of plants, buildings, the sky – whatever you want. This is your time to show off what you love about the world. Maybe even what you don’t love, or issues you feel need to be discussed. Many photography courses out there will help you to perfect your technique. However, coming up with your own technique could even be a good idea. Don’t feel the need to conform!
Writing Stories, Journaling
Writing stories or even just journaling about your own experiences could be a brilliant way to let off some steam. The more you write, the more you’ll improve your writing technique, too. You don’t need to base yourself on another writer or even try to be something you’re not. You don’t need to know everything about writing. If your language style is simple, keep it that way. Become the best version of yourself. It’s a lot of fun!
Remember, the more you do the things mentioned in this guide, the better you’ll get at them. You might even find that you get more and more inspiration come to you, and create some really exciting things! That being said, you don’t need to be ‘good’ by society’s standards to do anything. As long as you’re enjoying yourself and it’s helping you, it’s great! Feel free to leave any of your own tips and tricks in the comments section below. Come back for more soon!
