Being creative is not a skill and not a gift; it is a mix and match.
Those who produce creativity in whatever they do tends to find ways to succeed in a way that doesn’t feel hectic and tiring. But it can’t be the same sane every single time, and there come phases when people struggle to get creative enough that they do find themselves in the box of frustration.
Who are we talking about all this?
We are souls from the same land where creativity happens to be the source of life and happiness. And the vibes of frustration when one struggles to touch the creative high is what we have experienced a lot of times.
Thus, we know the emotions and also the way to get out of them.
There may be some expectations, but pushing the wires of your mind to go beyond imagination doesn’t work effectively and efficiently. It is hard to bring it out when you don’t feel it inside, no matter how hard you push your creative limits.
You have to give yourself a break and let your mind and soul relax for a re-boost.
Eat Something Delicious!
Whether you are on a diet or not, eating something delicious always helps in providing a boost to your creativity, and that’s said for eternity. There is a scientific reason: eating something delicious increases the production of feel-good hormones (serotonin and dopamine) in our bodies. And when you feel good and happy inside, your creativity will find itself booming with higher efficiency. It can be anything you like, but most people prefer to have something sweet. While chocolates and candies are indeed amongst the go-to options, getting a cakes online from a famous brand like Bakingo on your plate through cake delivery in Pune or where you reside is a must-try option. And don’t eat for the sake of eating. You should enjoy your food without thinking about whether it will work or not. Eat it like a kid who knows no worries!
Have A Power Nap!
A tired mind can never take you into the world of imagination! You might have worked a lot in the past few days and hence having a rest is necessary. But while at work, you can’t have proper rest, and thus, the importance of having a power nap makes an official entry. We don’t know whether you have heard or not, but many famous scientists in the world have revealed that they have found a solution to a problem in their dreams. Many poets and lyricists have written their best while they were dreaming. So, when you get to sleep for a power nap thinking about something you need to be creative about, the chances are quite high that you will find the answer just in your dream. And even if that doesn’t happen, you will wake up a bit relaxed and will be able to think creatively. 10 to 20 minutes is considered the ideal time for a power nap.
Put Yourself In A Creative Arena!
Where will you find the creative arena? The answer is wherever there is a lot of nature to admire. There is nothing more creative than magic, and there is nothing more magical than nature. From flowers to plants to butterflies to fruits to grass and to be continued; there is an abundance of creativity to intake just by being around nature. A daily visit to the park or the government-approved jungle (if there is any nearby) is going to do the work for you, and you will be able to put your best foot forward. When you struggle to get the creativity out while you are at your workplace, you can choose to spend some time with an indoor plant in a corner where there is no noise.
Creativity not only means imagination; it is about finding a catchy way of doing or saying something ordinary. The creativity of robots is one of the prime examples of observing and bringing it to your work. You should look away from your screen or notepad and start observing people and things happening around you. Just observe like a child, and you will find something that you can relate to your work. Many actors who have made their characters alive for a lifetime have said in the interviews that they have observed people, animals, and birds and have used the observations to portray the role.

Mind is where it all happens, so a habit of meditation is the best way to enhance your creative self.
