Creativity doesn’t usually occur while you’re screen-sucking.
To boost your number of creative ideas, you might consider getting away from your computer and introducing your brain to some new stimuli every now and then.
7 ways that work for me:
- Enjoy coffee at a cafe (without iPhone, iPad, or laptop).
- Take a walk outside.
- Play ball with my dogs.
- Listen to music.
- Read fiction.
- Talk with another human about Stuff That Matters.
- Take a nap.
Those are some of my ways of boosting creativity. You will have your own. Just try to do something that doesn’t involve the Internet.
To quote John Cleese: “We don’t know where we get our ideas from. We do know that we do not get them from our laptops.”
