4 Easy Steps to Great Ideas

great ideas

Great ideas are everywhere around you.

Look around. Think about every object you see and its history.

It needed a lot of hard work, effort and dedication to be created; countless failures so that it can become useful; financial support to be the best version of itself; marketing researches and strategies to make people familiar with it and find what the target audience wants.

Many other actions and people are included so that it can be delivered directly to the buyer at the right place and time.

But before all that, there was that one person, who is just like me and you.
He may have been sitting in his room in front of the computer, when suddenly something incredible happened… an idea was born.

Everyone can come up with a great idea. But it’s not worth it to live your life just waiting for the greatest one to come.

We live in a modern world now and the story of Newton – who was sitting under a tree when he discovered the law of gravity, after an apple hit him on the head – is just too old.

So now, if you haven’t chosen to queue with the others who are waiting for a great idea, here are some things you can do:

How to Have Great Ideas?

1. Keep your eyes wide-open.

Every object, thought, person, event and place has a potential idea in progress. The magic can happen after simply combining  an object with a feature of another one that is completely irrelevant to it.

You can find the foundation of an idea in a small talk with colleagues, when jogging, after a lecture, from a great book/movie/song and so on.

Just look around you! The world is full of ideas that are just waiting for someone to find them and turn them into reality.

2. Brainstorming.

This is one of the best things I’ve ever heard of that helps me with my creativity. I strongly recommend it to you!

Read a few articles or blog posts about every technique of the process of brainstorming. Eventually you’ll find yourself using them in your free time or when you have to be somewhere, but feel bored, or just when you are concentrating.

I use it for writing but you can apply it to every aspect of your life, especially when having a problem.

3. Carry a notebook wherever you go.

This is very important, because as someone who is on his way to success, you have to keep track of your thoughts, which you can later transform into great business ideas.

Thus you will always be prepared when inspiration comes.

4. Believe in your idea.

It’s priceless to have support from your family and friends, but not everyone is that lucky.

With today’s negative and skeptic people it is better if you yourself stand up for your own ideas.
After all, no one else but the person who comes up with them is able to have such a deep faith so that they can become reality.

Now you can start applying those tips in your daily life.

Soon it will be like a game for you, in which the winner will be no one else but you. Prepare to be amazed by the creativity you never knew you had!

Which step was easier for you? Do you have people who support you when it comes down to creativity?

5 Health Hacks That Can Boost Your Creativity

5 Health Hacks That Can Boost Your Creativity

We all live such busy lives that it is totally normal to feel run down from time to time. You can’t be switched on 24/7, and if you were, you’d be burnt out pretty soon afterward!

When you’re tired and stressed, there are many things which can happen to your body and mind, but one of them will almost certainly be a waving goodbye to any creativity or concentration you were hoping to keep hold of.

Creativity is something we all need in our daily lives. But if you have a job which relies upon your ideas and thoughts when it packs up and goes on vacation for a short while, it can be super-distressing, and frustrating to say the least.

You will have no doubt heard of the old ‘writer’s block’ adage, but you don’t need to be a writer to suffer from creativity problems. The good news is that there are several things you can do to give your creativity a boost, and welcome it back into the fold. Let’s check out five of the best.

How to Boost Your Creativity

1. Reduce Stress

Stress does nothing, absolutely nothing, good for your focus, concentration, and creativity levels. If you are stressed out, you’re burnt out, and you’re not going to be able to keep your mind on anything other than the thing that’s stressing you out. Or it’s going to be flitting from one thing to another, and never doing anything productive.

Put simply, stress is dangerous on so many levels, that you need to do everything you can to reduce it as much as possible.

It’s unrealistic to say that you should kick stress out of your life for good and never feel even the tiniest amount. A little stress is good for you, it helps to motivate and push you to achieve. When stress is prolonged and severe however, it can impact every single system in your body – including your heart. It’s just not worth the hassle, so instead, look to become much less stressed than you are.

You can reduce stress:

  • by taking time for yourself,
  • enjoying social time with friends and family,
  • exercising regularly,
  • eating a healthy diet,
  • getting plenty of sleep,
  • and tackling the thing which is stressing you out, head on.

2. Incorporate Regular Exercise Into Your Routine

We just mentioned regular exercise as a way to reduce stress, but it also helps to boost your creativity too.

Exercise gets your blood pumping, your heart rate up, and it ironically also helps you to relax. You’re much more likely to get a good night’s sleep, you’ll be healthier overall, and exercise is also a known treatment method for low mood and mild depression.

If you are suffering from low mood, or if you feel like things are becoming a little too much, exercise is a great way to help boost your mood and your overall health and wellbeing. By doing this, you are giving your mind clarity, and that in turn helps to boost focus and creativity.

You will notice that when your mind is clogged up with a million worries, you just don’t have the scope to be creative. When you clear your mind, you will notice that your creativity starts to come back!

3. Try Regular Massages for Relaxation

There is a lot of evidence to suggest that having a regular massage can help to boost your overall health and wellbeing by giant leaps.

Once upon a time, massages were thought to be luxuries, things that you only indulged in when visiting up-market spas. Thankfully, all that has changed, and more and more people are noticing the extreme benefits of having regular massages.

If you can’t afford to head to a heath center or spa on a regular basis, or if you simply don’t have the time, you could instead buy a massage chair to use in your home, so you’re not missing out!

Massage can help to boost your creativity because it gives you the chance to totally relax. You hold tension in your body when you’re stressed out and over-thinking, and that adds up to not only aches and pains, which aren’t going to do much for your state of mind, but it also clogs up your mind and stops you rom thinking straight.

By allowing yourself to totally relax, you are clearing your mind and allowing you creativity to flow. You’re also getting all the other benefits of massage too, such as increased healing, increased mood, increased circulation, better sleep patterns, etc.

4. Good Quality, Regular Sleep

How do you feel when you’re tired and lacking in sleep? Do you feel like coming up with new, innovative ideas? Not likely. You’re sluggish, irritable, and snappy. Creativity disappears when you are not getting the right amount of sleep, so it’s easy to turn that back by ensuring that you do get the right amount of sleep!

The amount you should be getting depends on you as an individual, but overall, between 7-8 hours of good quality sleep per night should have you firing on all cylinders.

If you find it hard to switch off, try drinking a warm, milky drink before you sleep, having a warm bath, switching off your phone and all your social media feeds around an hour before bed, and avoiding anything which is mentally stimulating.

Massage is also something you can use to help bring a better sleep pattern into your life, so look into this option too.

5. Eat a Healthy, Balanced Diet

What you eat has a direct impact on your creativity levels, because it impacts your mind.

If you’re clogging up your body with fatty, saturated foods, full of nasties and impurities, how can you expect your mind to be clear? It’s going to be very foggy, to say the least!

Try eating a healthy diet, organic if possible, and only eat anything which is clean and has had a life itself. This will give you a sharper mind, allow you to focus better, and have a fantastic effect on your overall health and wellbeing.

If you can incorporate this with regular exercise and relaxation, you’ll be super creative before you know it!

When you’re tired and stressed, there are many things which can happen to your body and mind, but one of them will almost certainly be a waving goodbye to any creativity or concentration you were hoping to keep hold of. If you can incorporate these tips, you’ll be super creative before you know it! #healthhacks #healthtips #creativity
