3 Ideas to help you be your own muse:
1. Everyone loves to browse Facebook while sitting in a carpool line or in a doctor's office or even with your morning cup of coffee. Take control of what content you are exposed to on your news feed. Take a few minutes and do some searches on keywords that interest you. For example I took the liberty of searching for positive quotes, art tips and healing art. I found a variety of Facebook Pages that I found very uplifting so I "liked' those pages. Then I scrolled through and found on my current news feed the posts that were "not so appropriate" and made sure I "unfollow" those people or pages. Yes! You can be in control !
2. Take mental breaks and turn off television and your phone. I often get too caught up in the nonsense of having to feel connected all the time. My creative mind works so much better in a quiet environment. Even just some white noise or classical music will alleviate stress and may even help you access those magical areas in your brain.

3. Surround yourself with people that are positive and inspiring; not those that bring you down and burden you with their dirty laundry. I like to be around good listeners or rather others that aren't conversation hogs...that sounds bad, but people that just suck all your energy out of you are draining. Everyone needs balance. You can't really control others behavior but you can limit time with them.
