Creativity is a motivational force to create new ideas and possibilities which can be helpful to solve problems. If you have something growing out of it within you, if it gives you growth, it is creative. The creativity produces stimulating art and craft, heart-touching music, exciting film or any other expressive tangible or intangible products.
If you want to boost your creativity, then these following 5 tips can be really helpful for you:-
1. Make a habit of doing physical and mental exercise everyday :-
In a research it is found that, when you are relaxed and rejuvenated, creative ideas usually come rather naturally. There are so many physical and mental techniques exist to relax ourselves. Get sometime to go for a morning or evening walk, play some sort of sport that you can enjoy, do yoga and meditation. Do whatever it is that relaxes you so that your brain can be more creative when you get back to work.
2. Expand your horizon :-
People put serious limitation on their brain capacity by feeding negative self talk to their mind that they are not creative. When you are self-centered, it limits your aspiration and limited aspirations limit your thinking and imagination. Hence, think in a large scale. With a little training and transforming your thought into a positive one, you’ll be better able to realize the talent you do possess.
3. Think it possible :-
Our thought really shapes into reality. Creativity is like a muscle and can be energized with practice. Don’t repeat the same boring workout every day. Challenge yourself to higher pursuits, something new, and never go for the same solution to a problem. Try bigger, better, faster, more efficient, and more creative.
4. Capture every single idea that pops into your head :-
Generally, ideas flow into our mind, while we are daydreaming. Don’t judge those ideas, you just note them down either in a hard copy or soft copy format so that you can implement these ideas in your creativity work.
5. Look for inspiration :-
Ideas are generated just like tiny seeds in a person’s mind. Of course, many of them die quickly. Try to plant as many of these seeds as you can by nurturing yourself with media. Listen to music, watch videos, read books, go to the museum, workshop, analyze articles and try new things every day. Indian handicrafts give us a glimpse into the core of the collective mind and societies through the mirror of individual mind that created them. There are numerous varieties of art and crafts in India, such as handcrafted Wall Decor, handicraft bags, hanging lanterns, which can be taken as your source of inspiration for creativity.
After exploring your creativity, try testing your executive function in your day-to-day life to see if your problem solving and deductive reasoning abilities have improved. However, the process of being creative alone is very rewarding.
