It doesn’t matter if you’re a writer or an artist you can experience a creative block at any time. Here are 4 ways you can get those creative juices flowing.

1) Get active.

Whether it’s a short run or walk, or even squeezing in a few yoga poses –  the excitement of doing something different every morning can lead to more creative insights. Fun fact: Vogue’s editor-in-chief Anna Wintour plays tennis for an hour almost every morning!

2) Dream Journalling.

Keeping a dream journal is one way to kickstart some creative inspiration in the morning. If you write down what you remember from your dreams as soon as you wake up, you might end up with killer ideas! Christopher Nolan’s Inception and The Beatles’ classic 1965 hit Yesterday also exist because the idea appeared in a dream.

3) New environment.

Same desk, same space – not exactly a picture of inspiration. Try to switch up your work location if you can. A change of scenery can help!

4) Listen to music

Since music has been shown to improve cognition and enhance learning, it makes sense that it could impact creative thinking too. So play on!
