Struggling to get your creative juices flowing? It can be quite intimidating when you don’t feel creative and you’re staring at a blank canvas. So how do you get your creative juices flowing? Here are 5 simple ways to get your creative juices flowing.
- Turn off your phone and computer
We consume a lot of media and digital content these days. In fact, the amount of stuff we’re bombarded with on a daily basis can be quite overwhelming. There’s TVs, computers, smartphones, laptops, smartwatches and more. Even if you have just a few of these, you’re still going to have lots of content thrown your way. To get your creative juices flowing, turn all of your devices off for a while so you’re left with your own thoughts. You may well find yourself coming up with new ideas because your mind has been given the chance to work on its own.
- Break from your routine
It can be hard coming up with new ideas when you do the same thing all the time. If you do the same thing day in, day out, you might find it hard stimulating your mind. When you’re in a routine, the best way to get your creative juices flowing is to break from your routine. Do something completely different to stimulate your mind. It could be something simple like going for a walk, reading a new book or going to a museum or gallery. Do something new to refresh your mind.
- Keep a diary
Having ideas stored in your mind is one thing, but having them written down is another. Once you start regularly getting ideas, write them down. You’ll soon build up a collection of ideas, which you can look back on to inspire even more ideas. Another good thing about having a diary of ideas is thought it encourages you to come up with more so you can fill it up.
- Keep a collection of inspirational things
When you find an image that inspires you, keep it. If you see a sight that you find inspirational, take a photo of it and keep the photo. Put images and photos of things that inspire you together in a collection. Build this collection up over time and use it to get your creative juices flowing whenever you’re lacking inspiration.
- Have a tidy workspace
Many people believe that having an unorganised work space can lead to you having an unorganised mind. Give your work space a good clean and sort your things out so you know where everything is. With a clean and organised work space, your mind shouldn’t be as cluttered and disorganised as before. You should find yourself able to think more clearly when your work space isn’t cluttered or chaotic.
