We all have creative blocks from time to time. Creativity requires positive thinking! As a musician Customized Red Sox Jersey , its important to believe in yourself and create the right environment in order to feel more creative and be spontaneous. Of course, if you don't take yourself first, you can't be creative at all. To increase your creativity, make sure you get enough sleep Cheap Red Sox Jersey , practice deep breathing, daydream, and find other ways to relax. Eat foods that nourish you and drink plenty of water. Once your basic needs are met, your body will allow your mind to explore new ideas.


The environment is also an important factor in enhancing your creativity. For example Carl Yastrzemski Red Sox Jersey , one who would like to read would like a quiet environment, and what perfect place than the seats at Terminal 2 of London's Heathrow airport. If you like to play basketball, its better to be in a nice court where you can really get into your peak state, rather than on a net attached to the side of your semi-detached house where space is limited.


Creativity comes easier with practice. Make it a habit to go into your music phase at a certain time each day. A ritual may get you into the mood. Perhaps lighting a candle or incense or putting on a certain type of music. These cues tune you into your purpose for being there; however Johnny Pesky Red Sox Jersey , note that it's important to pick the right kind of cues to create the right mood for your music.

One thing that I get some of my clients to do is to keep a journal?a place where you put sketches, fragments of word phrases Babe Ruth Red Sox Jersey , advertisements and images that inspire you. It doesn't have to be arranged pretty, just get the information down and use it as a workbook.


Get into the habit of making notes no matter what you are doing. Keep a notebook by the TV, by your bed, or wherever you may need one when a new idea strikes. If you are working on a certain project make a file where you can put photos and ideas when you come across them. If you see me Jimmie Foxx Red Sox Jersey , I've normally got a very small notebook in my back pocket and I take it out whenever I'm thinking and just write down anything I want. It's my space, and inevitably my life thoughts. A good link on journalling is here: you have a piece of music in mind, visualize how you would like it to feel when played and then create a breakdown of the music, note down the feeling next to it and then practice each segment several times before patching it up together. Remember this important rule: Break your goals into baby steps until they feel manageable. If you feel stuck on the piece Bobby Doerr Red Sox Jersey , make a deal with yourself to only work on it a certain amount of time each day. Alternating activities can help get your creativity moving.


Get inspiration by looking at artists you wouldn't normally look at. Or reading books you wouldn't ordinarily read. Doing something different than your normal activities can be get you going again. After a long time out of reading fiction, I finally picked up the book ?Night-time is my time? by Mark Higgins Clark. It's such a great book, and I can't let it go. It doesn't have any direct links at the moment, but one day David Ortiz Red Sox Jersey , it'll enhance some of my creativity whether it's a current project or not. I'm sure of that.
