Just like a Spinal Tap amp, a creativity setting of “eleven” is surely better than “ten.” Right? Who knows really, but the point is, if you’re struggling to feel creative, you may be looking for a few tips to get the ideas flowing again. Here are four ways to crank that creativity up to eleven…Get sweaty: A good workout can be as good for your brain as it is for your body. Getting your blood pumping may be just what you need to get your thoughts flowing. Pop on some headphones, put on some good tunes, get your heart rate up, and watch your mind transform.Get uncomfortable: Every once in a while, you have to leave your comfort zone. Maybe you’re not initially stoked about the thought of waking up early in order to change your routine, but that change in your schedule may help get those creative juices flowing just the way you want.Get some face time: When you’re stuck, you may have the same thoughts circling round and round in your head. Spend some time with a friend or family member who supports you. It’s always a good idea to have someone to bounce ideas off of.Get away: Sometimes, our brains need a break. A great way to do this is to transport yourself to another place. Whether it’s a beach vacation or weekend Netflix binge, some time “away” may be just what you need to get your brain working the way you want it to again.last_img read more
