How to Keep Those Brain Cobwebs Away – Three Tips

What do you when you feel like you’ve done everything you can to keep those creative juices flowing but to no avail? You’ve been staring at your computer, or laptop, or ipad for half an hour now and you still can’t manage to squeeze some presentation ideas out of that awesome brain of yours.

Below are three simple yet excellent tips you can do to keep those brain cobwebs away and make sure that all the nuts and bolts in your head are turning again:

1. Take a Walk – It can be a walk in the park, or along your office street, or around your neighborhood. The important thing is to get some fresh air to oxygenate your brain, along with stimulating your mind with some visual and auditory cues. Once you feel relaxed and less stressed, your creative ideas will follow. It’s no wonder then why we usually get our best ideas when we’re taking a shower, or doing something mundane and relaxing. The trick is to relax coz that’s when our brain functions the most.

  2. Eavesdrop – Yep, that’s right. Try to listen in to other people’s conversations or listen to the radio, or simply for once just listen and try not to talk. You’ll be amazed at the things you get to find out when you’re not too self-absorbed. Of course do the listening in to other people’s conversations inconspicuously.

3. Visually stimulate your mind – watch a movie, look at photos from flicker or facebook or pinterest. Read a graphics novel. Stimulate your mind with colorful and vibrant visual cues and you’ll be surprised how your mind will take you to places that you’ve never been to before.
