In order to get successful in life, we need a perfect productive plan. It doesn’t matter whether you are a writer, blogger or hobbyist, you can boost your creativity at any time. The brain functions better and is more creative when doing certain things.
There are several ways to boost your creativity and a few are listed below.
In a study on anagrams, participants who asked themselves questions (“Will I do well?”) solved significantly more than those who had declared they would succeed (“I will do well”). One possible reason why this strategy is effective is that by asking yourself questions, your brain automatically starts searching for answers, acting as a call to action. Other research has linked how you talk to yourself to your mindset, concentration, and resilience.
Research from the University of Hertfordshire, coupled with research from Stanford University, has shown that by ‘letting yourself go’ through exercise can allow you to boost your creativity. Walking and running were seen to expose participants to an array of different environmental cues that stimulated the brains imagination and thus creativity.
Stop Criticizing Yourself
Knowing you are doing things as best you can remove the barriers in front of your creative ideas. Never be harsh or criticize yourself, and learn to accept yourself for the way you are. You are creative, and by accepting that fact your self-limiting beliefs won’t block creativity.
Practice Makes Perfect
Practicing your craft every day, even for a little while, keeps your mind creative. If you write, then write something every day. If you want to be a good designer, design something every day, even if it’s just something as easy as redesigning the logo for your favorite cereal.
