15 Awesome Ways to Boost Your Creativity

By: Diggy De Bruin
Write Your Ideas Down
Get into the habit of writing your ideas down as soon as you get them. This way you train your brain to keep coming up with ideas, and as soon as you get them you write them down. When they are written down you don't have to worry about remembering them and this allows more room for new ideas to form in your mind.
Good ideas and creativity usually do not appear under stress. When you are relaxed and rejuvenated, creative ideas usually come rather naturally. Take a walk on the beach, take a nap, go and play some sport or do whatever it is that relaxes you so that your brain can be more creative when you get back to work.
No Expectations
Similar to no stress, but specifically no stress from the outcome. When you create with love and passion and no expectation of the outcome, the chances are much greater that you will create something remarkable!
Be Easy On Yourself
Stop criticizing yourself and stop being so harsh for yourself. Accept yourself the way you are and do things to the best of your ability. You are enough and you are creative. Don't let self-limiting beliefs block out your creativity!
Reading stimulates the mind. The more you read, the more you open your mind up to new ways of thinking and thus the more creative you will become. I know that reading can be a bore, especially if you have to force yourself to do it. Just start small. Choose a book on a topic that you like (it can even be about your favourite sport or artist) and spend 30 minutes before you go to bed reading that book. This way you can read 1-2 new books every month without it being a lot of effort, and it will definitely contribute to you being more creative.
Listen to Mozart
Albert Einstein said he owes his creativity to listening to Mozart pieces. Certain songs and compositions allow the brain to be more creative and function better. Albert Einstein did not know why this was the case, but he found Mozart compositions to help his thinking.
Binaural Beats
In the present age the concept of music enhancing your thinking has been scientifically researched and proven. Certain frequencies have a positive effect on increasing your brain's performance and creativity. Today they are known as Binaural Beats and Isochronic Tones. Basically, scientists have engineered sound-files (I can't really call them songs) with researched frequencies that have proven to increase brain performance. Simply buy purchasing some of these tracks and listening to them with stereo headphones, you can already notice an effect on your thinking and creativity.

Ask For Help
Don't be scared to ask someone for help or for their opinion. The input from a friend or stranger could be enough to jumpstart a whole series of ideas and new creativity.
Expand Your Horizons
Do something you have never ever done before in your life. The experience of it may be enough to boost your creativity tenfold and give you many new ideas.
Eat Blueberries
Blueberries are said to be the richest in anti-oxidants and good for your brain an thinking abilities. Eat a handful a day, and even if you don't get extra creativity, enjoy the taste and the health benefits.
Stop Doing Drugs
I'm talking about sugars, processed foods, alcohol, caffeine and cigarettes. (I shouldn't have to tell you not to do hard drugs!)
Do Puzzles
Puzzels stimulate your brain to look at a problem from different angles. The easier you are able to open up your mind to new ideas and new approaches, the more likely it will be that you become more creative.
Play An Instrument
I personally like playing piano. It is relaxing and it allows me to experiment with new tones, melodies and ideas.
