>Jump Start Your Creativity or Look Stupid Trying

2 Jan


I found these tips on how to increase creativity recently and I wanted to share them with you.  They are ideas with a bit of a twist to gain more creativity in your everyday life. First of all, it suggests you to try an activity or two that is sort of out of the ordinary.  And secondly, they are  free to try.  Good luck!
How to Increase your Creative Mind:  By Rodney Stevens, eHow Member

With the world expanding everyday with new ideas, we need to learn how to keep up the creativity of the world. Ideas start from a thought, and that thought comes from a creative mind. Use these tips to improve your creativity.

Things You’ll Need:
A quiet place to think

1.  Learn how to be ambidextrous. This causes you to use both sides of your brain. One side for logic and reason and the other side for creativity. If you can activate both sides of your brain frequently then creative ideas will flow to you much easier. Try doing many things that involve using both hands and switch hands often.

2.  Move your eyes back and forth for thirty seconds. This activates both sides of the brain quickly for some quick creative thinking.

3.Daydreaming is an effective way to boost your creativity. Just letting your mind wander gives your subconscious mind time to wander and come up with new ideas.

4.  Try walking backwards when visualizing or problem solving. This stimulates the brain in a sense of being in an unfamiliar situation which cause you to think differently.

Let me know what works best for you and your creative work situations.  Please feel free to laugh at me if you see me in my neighborhood walking around backwards.  I will be doing that while holding my jewelry making tools in both hands, with my eyes dashing side to side from ear to ear and looking like I am in a deep relaxed stare in a subconscious state of mind!
