Positive Habits to be More Creative

Wake up Early

The early bird gets the worm because they have more hours in which to accomplish their goals. Early in the morning, your frontal cortex (your brain’s creativity center) is at its peak activity level.

Be Active

Physical activity improves your blood flow and releases mood-boosting endorphins. A Stanford study shows that a person’s creativity increased by 60% after engaging in a physical activity like walking.

Be Grateful

Being grateful really is the key to a happy life. This is because it eliminates fear and anxiety. It also enables creativity to flow naturally.

Eat Healthy

Food is your body’s fuel. The better the quality, the better your body performs. Fill up on junk food and you’ll become lethargic. Replace sugary foods with fruits and vegetables instead.

A half-hearted attempt won’t make you creative. You must become deeply immersed in your art form, looking for ways to work smarter, not harder. #boostyourcreativity Click To Tweet

Become Immersed in Creativity

A half-hearted attempt won’t make you creative. You must become deeply immersed in your art form, looking for ways to work smarter, not harder. Take time to learn how technology can help you.

Try new Things

Stop getting stuck. Get up and move somewhere new for the day. Getting out of your comfort zone will help you learn new things and keep your brain from getting stuck in its ways.

Learn About Life

By becoming a student of life (both mentally and physically), you’ll start finding inspiration all around you. Take notes on what inspires you at the moment so you can refer to them later.

Don’t Be Afraid to Make a Mistake

Mistakes are learning opportunities. They teach us we’re on the wrong path so we don’t stay stuck on them. 

Use Procrastination to Your Benefit

Not everything must be done immediately. Healthy doses of procrastination can help you be more efficient and creative.

Get Away for a While

Take some time away from your work so you don’t lose the creative touch.
