Remember this time last year, when lockdown hit: how many of us said we were going to use the extra time to start a side hustle, write a novel, launch a podcast? And yet for most of us, just having the spare time to do so wasn't enough. Instead, we faced the cold, hard reality that you can't just turn creativity on and off like a tap.
The most popular answer to our question may seem obvious, but that doesn't make it any less true. If you're having trouble fulfilling a brief, it helps to step away and give your brain a little time to process things. The chances are that when you return, fresh ideas will come.
Another way to jolt your brain into being more creative is to change up the sounds you're listening to.
Having certain music for different types of tasks can be a huge help for you because they act as trigger bringing you into the zone. And the you can work more efficiently.
Sometimes your creativity can be held back because you're trying to devise a refined, finished product at the start, rather than being looser and freer with your ideas.
So trying being mess that might bring up some idea off you.
If you're struggling to be creative, it could be because you're in the wrong state of mind. So do something about it.
Do some mindfulness practice just before working on something creative.
Mindfulness can do wonders by getting you immersed in work and the results will be something wonderful and better than you expected.
Having too much time to work on a project can sometimes hold you back.
Conversely, putting time restrictions in place can be a great way to unblock your flow.
Imagine and recreate scenarios in your head.
I'm Not talking about OVERTHINKING here.
Intentionally creating scenario about work and imagining things as you want them can help you do you work in a much better and creative way.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
