Having a hard time getting your creative juices flowing? Try these easy but foolproof tips:
- If nothing comes to mind no matter how hard you push; sit back, relax, and just stop thinking. Stimulating your creative juices requires you to perform certain exercises acclimated to your specific preferences and personality traits. And no aspect of either one could be linked to force. In fact, the more you force your mind to work to your liking, the more likely it wouldn't budge. Moreover, you risk coming down with a bad migraine headache if you persist.
- Go out for a walk. For some creatives, letting their minds drift while strolling works to conjure creative thoughts, which they could use for their particular endeavor. Walking, even when done leisurely, serves not only to ready their minds for creative thinking. It also loosens stiff muscles making them feel more at ease, hence more apt to think creatively.
- Doodle or play around with your head. Scientific researches confirmed that doodling, despite its seeming idleness, effects concentration positively. But if doodling isn't your thing, then feel free to do any activity that involves your mind—answer a crossword puzzle, sketch, play with numbers, do anagrams, etc.
