Lifehack.org rejuvenating creativity

Recently, Lifehack.org posted 30 Tips to Rejuvenate Your Creativity submitted by their readers. Here are some of my favorites:

3. Expose yourself. Not after too much vodka. Expose yourself to new art – books, music, paintings – all the time. If you’re a rocker, listen to funk. If you’re a crime writer, read fantasy. If you’re a productivity writer, read something about slacking off.

8. Drink too much coffee sometimes (one of my favorite submissions).

15. Creativity is a muscle. Exercise it daily – if you only need to create once a week, your muscles may have atrophied if you don’t do it just because you don’t have to.

22. Keep a journal. It can get your mind working, and in a month, or a year, when you’ve gained some distance from what you’ve written it can give you new ideas.

28. Trash what you’re working on. Start again.
