Have you noticed that your best ideas seem to show up “out of nowhere”, unannounced and often unbidden?
Brain research reveals that creative thinking comes from our right-brain, the part of our brain that is intuitive and instinctive.
Daniel Pink, the author of A Whole New Mind, states that the era of “left brain” dominance is giving way to a more integrated approach that includes and values the gifts of our right-brain; creativity and intuition. This blending of both sides of our brain allow for, as Pink suggests, a whole new world. A whole new world of possibilities.
Sometimes all it takes is one good idea.Right?
Consider what one good idea could do for you such as:
solve a business dilemma that is keeping you awake at night
make you a sweet bundle of money
show you how to combine two of your favorite activities into a viable business
The possibilities are endless. An article in Wired magazine was quoted to say” right- brainers will rule the future”. It’s easy to get caught up in left-brain, linear mode but sometimes, the missing ingredient is the creative edge which makes all the difference.
Here are 3 quick tips on how to nurture your right-brain + boost your creative potential starting today…
1. Set up daily routines- By putting ordinary things on auto-pilot,we are able to conserve valuable psychic and physical energy so that we have room for our creative ideas surface.
2. Be in nature- a walk in the woods or sitting on a park bench is akin to rolling out the welcome mat to our creativity. Say, hello to your inner brilliance!
3.Be different- Try new foods, read books in an unusual genre,go a new way to work, meet new people. These novel experiences activate your right brain. You’ll see things differently and find yourself coming up with new ways of thinking and doing.
