6 Neat and Clever Ways to Put Your Mind Into a Creative State

When you spend most of your time chasing kiddos, tapping keyboards, or inputting data, you may feel like all your creative energy is slipping away. But there are ways to enter into a creative state despite everything else that may be going on. Here are just 6 ways you can boost your creativity.

1. Hit the Gym
Strangely enough, physical exercise can make you more alert. During strenuous workouts, blood and oxygen are being rushed through your body. This causes your mind to be more awake than it otherwise would be. And a mind refreshed by exercise will have greater capacity for creativity.

2. Practice Yoga
If you're not into sweat sessions, unwinding with yoga can be a great alternative. Yoga can help you clear your mind and access your creative state more easily. It's a less intense form of exercise and a conduit for mindfulness and self-awareness.

3. Meditate
After your yoga session, toss on your headphones for some guided meditation. Meditation reduces stress and anxiety and can help you think more clearly. It can also help calm your busy mind.

With work, family, and home responsibilities to think about, it can be hard to make mental space for creativity. That's why one of the ways to become more creative has to be learning to tune everything else out.

4. Free-write
Free-writing is one of those tried-and-true creativity tools that helps us get out of our own way. First, you set a timer for fifteen to twenty minutes (or however long you like). Then you write for the entire time. You never lift your pen off the page or pause to think about what you've written.

The point of free-writing is to quiet our internal editor. It allows our words to flow out of us, free from our own self-judgement.

5. Calm Yourself Down
Tea has a host of health benefits. In the morning, a caffeinated green or black tea will help you wake up and start your day. If you're drinking it in the evening, get yourself a soothing herbal tea, like chamomile. Pair it with a warm bath or some meditation, and you're all set. You can also look for your Cbdistillery coupons and get shopping.

These are natural ways to calm your mind and experience your flow state.

6. Brainstorm
One of the most helpful exercises you can do while you're learning to be creative is the brainstorm. If you feel stuck when you come up with ideas, brainstorming lets you piggy-back on the ideas of others.

Start with a small concept: what do you want to create? What's your goal? Maybe you want to write a short story about a character who overcomes the odds, but you don't know what should happen in the story.

Brainstorming lets you bounce ideas off of other people. You may be surprised by the unique ideas you come up with together.

Experience Your Most Creative State
Creativity can be a total rush! It's invigorating to feel like you're where you want to be, doing what you want to do and creating something new in the process.

Try one of these 6 tips and dive headfirst into your next creative state.
