When we hear the word creativity, we typically think of artistic work. Yet, we should expand our definition of creativity. Creativity is generating ideas that are original and useful. Every human can be creative in some area. We all have talent and skills where we can use our creativity to succeed. Creativity helps us find ways to improve our lives. It helps us solve problems and some scientists believe it is good for the brain. Our creativity can motivate us and help us become innovative.
You do not have to let your creativity lie dormant. There are steps you can take to activate it. Evaluate your personality. Determine your likes and dislikes. Are you a morning person? Then you should spend time in the morning boosting your creativity. If you are a night person. Then you should spend time at night boosting your creativity. Take time to meditate and spend quiet time to allow your spirit to speak to you. In your quiet time keep your thoughts positive. Write your thoughts down so you will be able to remember them. Do not be afraid to express yourself and try new things. Be willing to step outside of your comfort zone. Do not skip on sleep. Research shows that sleep boosts creativity and helps with innovative thinking.
Being physically active can stimulate creative thinking. Take a walk outside. Studies show that being outside has a positive impact on the part of the brain involved with multi-tasking, problem solving, and critical thinking. Exercising can stimulate your creativity because the release of endorphins and adrenaline will help boost it.
You should not limit creativity. You can incorporate it every day into your life. It can inspire you and give you the strategy you need to reach your goals.
