Creativity - What Does It Take to Get Your Creative Juices Flowing

April 17, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 153

Being creative is not an easy task. As all of the people who work in fields that require constant creativity, there are moments when ideas just don't come. What can you do in those moments?

You can't give an exact recipe of what works for each of us, because as we all know, we are each unique. Nevertheless, there is no problem in giving you some ideas of what to do in this case.

1. Try doing old things in new ways - Generating new experiences for you opens up your mind. If you feel like you've lost your whole inspiration, then there is something in your life that you can do differently in order to bring the new into it. If you always used to take the same road to work every morning, this time choose a different path. If you used to drink black coffee each day, this time try a frappe. Small changes can be done in order to break the habit. Habit is the biggest enemy of creativity.

2. Try a new environment - This can mean everything from re-painting your working corner, to taking a trip to the other side of the world. Meeting new cultures would be the supreme change of vision and environment.

If you're not up for such a big change, then you can stick to just re-arranging your work space. Put a flower on your desk, add some awesome framed photos of your friends and family, create a collage of interesting articles from magazines, write your name in colorful letters.. Anything! Just make it colorful and inspiring!

3. Look for inspiration - You can find inspiration on the internet, or why not, from the people around you. Just be open to actually see the world and other people's ideas.

To give you a personal example, I've joined different websites, like for example, to help me in getting some inspiration for photography, design and digital painting. Besides that you can also subscribe to blogs that will feed you the information, no effort from your part required ( besides checking out the posts, of course).

The main idea is that our creative juice is triggered by different things. For some it's a scene, for others it's a word, a sense or a smell. It's important to get a hint of the things that trigger your creativity. What sense of the 5 turns your brain creative mode?

It's not easy, but it can be done with patience and trying the different methods I talked about here. You's eventually get the idea of what you need to be creative.

We have decided that people need a drop of inspiration in their life.Busygoat is a blog that works 24/7 to keep your creative juice flowing. Find creative and amazing ideas here!
