The subconscious is extremely complex and often not very direct. This means that tapping into it, and connecting with the power it holds, often requires approaching it from a different angle.. One of the best ways to do this is to access your creativity.
Every human is creative. It is part of our nature. You do not have to be an exceptional artist to be creative or enjoy creating. The subconscious mind is the source of all our creativity, which means that engaging in creative pursuits inevitably taps into the subconscious.
Being creative gives you benefits that can go far beyond making art. It can help you solve problems, figure out strategies, brainstorm ideas, and more. All this from allowing yourself to tap into your subconscious mind. Creating is not only fun, but reduces stress and increases relaxation which are important benefits for everyone.
Most hobbies count as creative hobbies. The traditional artistic pursuits--painting, sculpting, pottery, and so forth--are all creative, of course, but there are many more. Woodworking, glassblowing, scrapbooking, welding, digital template designing, are all creative hobbies.
Fiber arts, from knitting to spinning, count as creative hobbies. Even adult coloring books are creative. Any hobby in which you make or modify something is a creative hobby, whether it is painting pre-built figures from a hobby store, creating an oil painting from scratch, making figures from blocks of wood, or crocheting a scarf.
You can find a creative hobby to suit you no matter what your budget is or what your interests are. Look around and try different ones until you find something that catches your interest and creates that “spark” of creativity in you. It does not matter what you choose, as long as you choose one or more that you like.
It works best to choose a hobby that is different from your day job. If you do a lot of writing in your career, pick something not related to words. If you draw for a living, pick something that has nothing to do with this .
Consistency is the key to this method. You should engage in whatever hobby you choose regularly to get the most benefit from it. Commit to setting aside time once or twice a week to work on your hobby. Half an hour is enough to give you the benefits and help you tap into your subconscious.
