Creativity isn't just an artist's concern. Creativity is about using your imagination in every endeavor. Believe it or not, you are a creative person already. However, these tips might inspire you to get the best of what you already have.
1. GET OUTSIDE
This comes as a very first tip for a reason. Whether it's outside your house or outside your mind, changing your perspective will help the ideas flow.
2. DRINK ENOUGH WATER
Your brain functions much better when well-hydrated. Symptoms of mild dehydration include tiredness, headache, muscle weakness, and dizziness - these are certainly not going to help you to think straight.
Exercise produces endorphins that might as well be responsible for your next brilliant idea.
Dreaming is very important, inside a dream nothing is impossible. Use that to your advantage.
5. STOP WATCHING TELEVISION
Or better yet, get rid of the damn thing. TV is a mind-killer. Turn it off. Even if this idea scares you, turn it off.
6. WRITE WITH PEN & PAPER
Keep a journal. Typing on a keypad into a computer doesn’t always open up that tactile sense-loving part of us that loves to create.
7. WALK IN THE RAIN
This one is particularly helpful to me. Hard to explain, get out there and feel it.
8. GET UP EARLY AND WATCH THE SUNRISE
Do it. Quietly.
9. VISIT A GALLERY
See another artist’s creation. Live, not through your screen.
