An Open University survey shows that 61% of people lucky enough to have some free time during 2020 took up creative pursuits, such as reading, knitting, photography or cooking. I discovered a love of gardening. Now that life is getting busier, is it possible to balance so-called “normality” with the creativity some were able to embrace in lockdown? Here are some tips:
- Embrace its simplicity. Remember, you didn’t start a project for accolades, but because you enjoyed it.
- Don’t call it a hobby. Iyour new pursuit becomes part of your identity, you’re more likely to keep it up.
- Schedule, schedule, schedule. Don’t expect free time to magically appear; instead dedicate specific time to your new recreation.
