The last two pandemic years have caused a lot of distress in our lives. Many of us have been pushed to work from home for more than a year now. Working from home means the barrier between work and personal life vanishes. This is the main reason why you may feel burned out till now. While many workplaces have already started functioning normally, a few of them continue to let their employees work from home, which may make you feel stuck at home.
As a creative person, I have noticed that a lot of creative work has helped me stay sane, so I am sharing a few tips that can help prevent such burnout.
- Do Mandala Coloring:
Mandala is a really trending art form right now, and it is also an exciting project to get involved in. I myself have spent hours coloring mandala art books. You may not be a mandala expert, but that does not matter. You just need to know to color inside the lines, and this hobby will help you relax your mind. You can engage in coloring the book for hours and still not get tired, as it is really relaxing and exciting. The feeling of accomplishment when you finish painting one of the pages also releases endorphins and lifts your mood. Get these paintings framed to add some color to your home.
- Join Spin Art:
If you are looking for more creative things to do in San Antonio, you can consider Spin Art Nation. Spin art is a relatively new concept that brings out your creativity and is refreshing. This can be done along with your family members and colleagues. It is not tedious, but the end results are unbelievable.
- Rearrange Your Home:
As I had to spend a lot of time at home, suddenly the decor started to make me feel uninspired. This is when I started decluttering my home and creatively shuffling things around to make it more inspiring to look at. Adding a few art pieces here and there also helped revamp the entire home look.
- Learn Hand Knitted:
Nowadays, there are tons of YouTube videos that teach you easy hand knitting ideas to make blankets and throws. You can always get yarn and start learning this new technique to make your DIY sofa throw.
- Engage in Glass Painting:
Glass painting is another form of art that is really technical and inspiring. It is also easy to learn, and you can make your own wall paintings using this technique. The investment is also less as you just need a piece of glass, and the painting is usually cheap.
The Bottom Line:
If you find spending time creatively a waste of time, do not think so. You may use a little of your work time to engage in this activity, but it clears your mind and makes you more productive. Trust me, you will be able to get more work done.
