This new poster from Postal Press caught my attention. The quote reads: "Imagination is more important than knowledge." ~Albert Einstein
Whenever my kids come to me and tell me they are bored, I tell them to go look for their imagination. It's important for kids to have a strong imagination, and if you google the word imagination, you will find countless articles about how to foster imaginative thinking in children. But what about us? As adults it's almost expected that our imagination has vanished. Yet, imaginative thinking is still important for us; we just have to work a little harder to find ours sometimes. So, here are some ideas to help you foster your own imagination:
- Take up a hobby or learn something new.
- Change your routine.
- Play or act like a kid. (In my opinion this is one of the greatest benefits of having children; you get to rediscover childhood!)
- Read a book that you might not normally read.
- Play games.
- Draw, paint, craft, garden, cook; do something with your hands.
