How Do You Encourage Your Creativity?


It’s very hard to come up with great ideas or think strategically when you’re head down, focusing on daily tasks.

Your brain needs a break if you want it to click into creative gear.

For some people that happens when they’re exercising, listening to podcasts or music, gardening, or simply by relaxing in the shower.

It’s different for all of us (check out my video in this Post, to see what I love to do, to encourage my creativity).

Of course, health and wellbeing also come into the equation.

If we eat well, drink alcohol only moderately and exercise often, our bodies are better primed to feed our brains. And that’s where the magic happens!

For those in leadership roles, creativity is important. Here’s why:

  • Creativity allows us to view & solve problems more openly.
  • Creativity inspires innovation.
  • It opens the mind.
  • It relieves stress.
  • It helps us see the big picture – not the day-to-day minutiae we can often find ourselves bogged down in.
