1. GET INSPIRED
The simplest way to get inspired is to change your environment. Go for a walk, visit an art
gallery or read a magazine.
2. BE CURIOUS
When you look out into the world with an inquisitive mind, you'll see that creative
inspiration and ideas can come from anywhere. Ask questions and look for ways you
can expose yourself to new people, places and experiences.
Stress is the enemy of creativity. Whenever we're stressed, the brain reallocates
resources to primitive areas, prioritizing primal emotions over abstract thinking and
motor control over creativity. Overcome stress by taking deep breaths or practicing yoga
or meditation whenever you feel creatively blocked.
4. KEEP A CREATIVE JOURNAL
Studies show that journaling about what you are grateful for lowers anxiety, stress, and
induces better sleep, thus contributing to a more open, free and creative mind. By
keeping a notebook around, you will also be able to capture your creative ideas and
inspirations at any time of the day.
