Brain Exercises to Stimulate Creativity
The brain is a muscle. Well, not strictly speaking, but the brain benefits from exercise just like the muscles in your body. When you exercise your brain, you create new neural pathways, and this increased connectivity within our mind makes for better creativity and problem solving. Wouldn't it make sense that if you work out your brain, then your brain function improves? Of course! And with improved brain function, that means improved creativity as well. In fact, there are specific exercises for the right brain—where creativity and artistic function originate—that can keep you creating art like a well-oiled machine. So, break away from your old neural pathways and your regular routine, and build that brain muscle!
Change of Scenery
Do you always sit in the same place to do your creative work? Get outdoors! Grab a portable drawing board or easel and literally get a change of scenery. These simple things will ensure that you keep your brain healthy for years to come.
Switch Your Medium
Brain stimulation is all about new experiences and stimuli, so get out of that comfort zone and take a plunge into the unknown!
