Creativity is about seeing things from a different perspective or viewpoint. Mindfulness is particularly good at developing this ability because it is all about stepping back from your thoughts and emotions rather than getting caught up in them. In this session Alister will share some ways in which you can tap into the creative side of your brain through the practice of mindfulness.

Instructions

KEY POINTS

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.
3. DE-STRESS
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.
