Creative people are often told that they need to be in the right mood or have the right environment to do their best work. They usually find it difficult to get creative on a whim, which can cause them immense stress. Creative people also want to believe that they will always have creativity at their fingertips, but this is just not possible for everyone.
Sometimes they need time and space with nothing else happening around them for their brain to focus solely on getting those artsy brain burps going. Otherwise, there is too much distraction going on inside of your head that you won’t be able to think about anything else but cleaning dishes or folding laundry.
Some people have morning routines that create a sense of order and routine for the day. Other people do not have morning routines, and it makes it hard to get their days started on the right foot. I like to start the morning with something productive before checking social media or checking emails. This helps me to clear my mind and get my to-do’s done. This trick helps me to not worry about the rest of the day and get started on my designs.
If you have a morning routine, try to do something creative in the morning. If not, plan some time for yourself later on during the day when your body isn’t feeling so tired and cranky. Creative people can often be more productive early in the day because they’re less likely to veer off into distractions like social media or emails. Creative people can also be motivated by their morning routine.
Some people have morning routines that create a sense of order and routine for the day. Not having any routines in the morning can make it hard to get the days started on the right foot. Having a good morning routine that fits your personality can influence the rest of your day.
If you’re someone who’s lacking motivation in the mornings, try starting your day with an activity that you enjoy or are good at first thing in the morning before checking social media or reading emails.
How to stimulate creativity?
Your creativity may also be enhanced by setting ideal conditions for creative thinking: Give yourself time and space to collect your thoughts; Ask questions that point out problems with old answers; Ensure access to resources that you don’t have every day: books, interesting articles, or inspiration in general.
Creative people have long used non-linear thinking techniques such as free association, brainstorming, and “mind mapping” to unlock creative blocks.
Other things that can stimulate creativity are making a list of everything you need to do, brainstorming other ideas or solutions to your problem, drawing an analogy from something familiar or unrelated, writing down a story idea, or exploring new media.
Creative people might be able to come up with their most creative ideas after they’ve done some work and had a break. Creative activities like designing, talking about your day (or someone else’s), journaling, or anything that engages both sides of the brain can enhance creativity.
One of the best ways to stimulate creativity? Sleep! Getting enough sleep is important because without it, your creativity will be lower and you’ll end up burning out sooner. The amount of sleep you need is determined by many factors, but experts recommend aiming for 7-9 hours per night. Of course, this might be easier said than done- but hey, there are plenty of other tricks to keep your day going!
That’s why we recommend a few tips for getting more creative by improving your sleep!:
1) Try to go to bed at set times every night. It’s not just about how much sleep you get, but the quality of it. That means regulating your bedtime and sticking to a routine
2) Get up at the same time every day. Even on weekends- so your body knows when it’s time to start.
3) Avoid computers, TVs, and screens before you head to bed as they might make it hard for you to fall asleep.
A morning routine isn’t just about getting up early in the morning. It’s also about what you do in the morning. I hope some of these tips can help you get the most out of your morning.
Whatever morning time means to you, it can be a valuable tool for getting your creative juices flowing and refocusing on your work. In sum, morning time is an important factor that should not be ignored when it comes to creative processes and work productivity.
