Contrary to what many believe, creativity is not something that you need to stir up within yourself. In fact, it naturally occurs in your brain several times an hour. But how does one best tap into the creative brain? How does one make space for it in a busy work environment?
By practicing the steps below for 60 seconds every hour, you can dramatically improve your ability to access your creativity.
- Close your eyes
- Deeply relax
- Invite your brain to daydream
What happens next
Thoughts and feelings will bounce around chaotically. That's creative mind-wandering. Watch it without interfering because this is your brain's way to solve the problems you've been working on. Now throw yourself back into work and notice how your productivity increases as your stress levels drop.
Before your 60-second daydreaming break, ask your brain a question you want solved. Then let your mind wander. Afterward, ask your intuition for an insight and pay attention to anything your creative imagination suggests. It may be golden advice!
