Take a Nap

Dreaming is a source of inspiration because your brain is working even when you’re asleep.

If you can’t seem to break through your brainstorming session, take a nap.

People who are concentrating too hard will sometimes block the creative processes necessary for problem-solving.

A drink or two might just help calm your brain.

Listen to Music

Music can put you into a “mind-wandering” state that’s perfectly conducive to coming up with new and creative ideas.

Daydreaming is linked to creativity.

The greatest insights come when we stop trying to be so purposeful.

Taking a shower is relaxing. It is also distracting, which helps your subconscious do its work. 

Go for a Walk

Walking increases creativity.

We don't need to use too much effort into walking, we just need to leave the mind free to wander.

Washing dishes mindfully by smelling the soap and feeling the shape of the dishes can increase mental stimulation.

Completing mindless chores gets you up and moving and helps make room for inspiration to flow.
