Creativity isn't a natural ability, some factors have a great and direct influence on our mind that makes us be creative people or people without creativity, using my experience I brought some practices that can help you.

Creativity is a muscle

A person who exercises his muscles needs constancy needs to abstain from some foods and also needs to have a diet aimed at strengthening muscles, so creativity is no different.

Creativity is a muscle of the brain, some events result in the weakening of this muscle, it could be the way we were brought up, how it was the interaction at home with the family, it could be trauma or disappointment.

But the focus here is: how can I change this? How can I become more creative in the things I do?

Your mind stores everything you see!

It is scientifically proven that we are what we hear, see and eat, let's start with what we see.

What is your environment like? What are you surrounded by?

Learn how to build visualization panels, reference boards of the things you like and the things you want to do in the future, when I say in the future it can be the very near future, surround yourself with things that just by looking awakens in you a desire to create.

Usually, it's very connected to the things we like the most, it can be an art painting, a photograph, a very creative video, a drawing, a palette of colors that you love.

The more your eyes see the same thing the more your brain will be able to conceive and process these things seen by your eyes and take you somewhere.

What we hear is important and this may be related to the social environment we go to, maybe you have toxic friends, maybe you have bad company, maybe you are in an environment that you want to go out and my advice is that you get rid of everything that could give you grief, like an envious friend who only gives you bad advice or who always disapproves of you, family members who discourage you, step back and take care of your mind.

What you hear is very important what you listen to will be part of who you are if you allow it, hearing and seeing is emotional.

Eating, ah, eating is so good!

Eat well! Eat healthily, sometimes we can go beyond the limits but be healthy this will contribute a lot to your mind flowing with ideas, those who eat poorly have consequences directly linked to creativity.

Your body processes what you see and hear constantly

At this stage your body will flow, when you have to create, your body and mind are prepared they will be full of ideas and references that will make you give life to something that may already exist but has a different brand and this brand is yours, will be your expression.

I love talking about creativity, I know what it's like to live a life without feeling the flow of ideas, what is a man without ideas?

Wilhelm Raabe said: A man without ideas is like a bird without wings.

That's how I got to be more creative, when I come across blocks, I solve them this way.

Are you a Creative Designer, singer, songwriter, artist, comedian, YouTuber, creative writer, freelancer, copywriter? Apply this and let the results speak for themselves.

I hope I have helped, I wrote thinking about people who need help and who are creatively blocked, I wish you many successes and achievements, dear writers and readers.
