While once used to formulate university papers, decide on a business direction, and to pool creative ideas, brainstorming is an excellent way of getting all of your potential bright ideas onto paper, where they might otherwise be flying around in your head a little too fast to pin down. Settle down with a big piece of paper and some pens, and let your mind wander without restraint, noting down what comes to mind. You might find some interesting connections once its all on paper.

Use Inspiring Design Techniques

Some people play their favorite song; others read a passage from a meaningful book. Whatever it is that gives you a little hit of inspiration, why not gather it into a motivational collage using a free mood board maker that you can display in your workspace. The occasional glance at a montage of the things you love is sure to keep your creative reservoir brimming with energy and inventiveness, allowing you to create at will. It can provide inspiration and motivation during those moments where you are struggling to think outside the box.

Change Your Lifestyle

Sometimes, unknown to you, therell be something in the background of your lifestyle that is dousing your creative flame. Bad habits, certain relationships, uninspiring work – it could be anything. Making continual changes to your lifestyle in a way that helps focus you will ensure you can give time and thought to your artistic ambitions. Having a positive mental attitude is also vital when working on your creativity.

Go Natural

Beauty and life are said to inspire creativity, and a good way to find these fundamental motivations is through long walks through forests and along empty beaches, or calm wanderings next to placid lakes or through snowy mountains. Whatever natural attractions that are available near you at your disposal in your locality, this could become an escape from daily life for you, where you can heighten your aesthetic appreciation and allow time to pass less hurriedly.

Find Artists

Practicing an art can feel like a lonely affair at times, and one that you may struggle with sharing with other people. Yet finding those who are also creatively-minded and having them as a close friend or artistic ally will provide an element of human motivation to the other motivations listed above. You can bounce ideas off one another, share your favorite art, and even collaborate on a project that is as much about having a laugh as it is about doing a creative project.

If youre feeling a little creatively bankrupt, then these five tips should coax you into a fruitful artistic place once more.
