Regenerating Creative Inspiration

If your day is anything like mine your mind is constantly bamboozled with new thoughts, creative ideas and inspirations. Sometimes this can be quite tiring on the brain, fatigue can inset itself into your mind and become a blockade for new creative direction.

You may feel sometimes that your mind begins to work in a straight forward motion seeing past opportunities for new creative direction off the track and it can be difficult to get the creative juices going again, however help is at hand with a few cheeky tips to keep you thinking.

Brainstorming

This practice involves a individual or a group putting down their thoughts to a problem on a piece of paper to make them visible, this allows for you to track your thought avenues and expand on existing creative ideas.

Lateral Thinking

Lateral thinking is a creative process that encourages you to think about the not so obvious answer, it is important to disrupt the conventional patterns adopted by the brain. It allows you to try new concepts instead of trying harder on existing concepts.

Discussion

Discussions with your friends or family can lead to spontaneous creative ideas, discussing your creative thoughts with other people can help with seeing from different perspectives.

There are many ways to find creative inspiration it is all around us you just have to see it. Simply changing your thought patterns provokes new ideas, don’t forget to think outside the box and tackle your problems from a different angle.

Remember to always innovate and implement change..

INSPIRATION IN MOVEMENT

When we find inspiration this is known as a stimulus, the inspiration has caused a reaction within ones self that causes you to act out in a certain manner, thus stimulating a new behavior.

Now, we constantly have stimulus around us all the time sparking new behavioral patterns, new thought patterns and even changes in our lives. However, confronted day to day by the same stimulus’ our brains become numb, the reaction from the same stimulus becomes less and less and we no longer get the same feelings we once did from said stimuli. For example, to constantly eat your favorite food day in day out it would be very likely you would become sick of it, and it would temporarily no longer be your favorite food (I say temporarily because the stimulus can be regained over time without any exposure to the given stimuli).

A way to irradiate numbness.

Ridding yourself of becoming numb to your surroundings through simply MOVING. Movement is life, when ever your in danger movement will keep you alive, when ever your life feels trapped movement will re-energize your life, movement is the key!

When I say movement i mean to travel, getting up having a little jig then sitting back down may make you feel lifted but it is a temporary solution to the bigger picture.

Why travel, why move?

Traveling is not just about sandy beaches and late night parties, travel if you want it to can be the up most lifting and life enhancing tool one can ever use because of three little things we all encounter everyday but get to see through a different perspective.

People

Cultures

Stories

People are everywhere, and a lot can be learned from people. The person sat within close radius of you right now could probably teach you a lesson about something you never even knew existed, no matter how brief or unrelated you find it to yourself it is knowledge. When traveling you will get meet hundreds hopefully thousands of new diverse PEOPLE, i mean how amazing is that, what could be more invigorating. Making new friends, connections, bridging the gaps between race and religion and coming to the realization that we are all ONE together as earths PEOPLE.

With new people comes new cultures, new ways of living, new beliefs. Becoming aware of the different cultures on our planet is something we all need to do because it allows us to view from a different perspective which is important in understanding each other. Experiencing new cultures can help you find where your culture or yourself may have been going wrong in areas of your life, you’ll find that somethings really don’t matter that you may have stressed out about repeatedly, and that you need to draw more attention to certain aspects of your life to better yourself, which without travel and experience would have led you into a downward spiral of constant stress and loss of directional purpose.

Last but not least is something that I believe keeps the world moving, drives ambition and the creative/imaginative spark in society and that is STORIES. Human beings since the beginning of man have told stories, on cave walls, in libraries, around fires, at holy gatherings, anywhere you go anyone you meet has a story behind it and the best stories are the big ones with great details although sometimes a little exaggerated that is the grace of story telling build your structure for your story, how would you like your life to be spoke about, mystical adventures or stressful late nights on excel. 

Now look around you, do you still get the same buzz from your surroundings or do you feel the urge to find better new things on the walk of life.

Do something drastic, make a change GO SEE THE WORLD!
