5 tips to awaken your creative energy


.


We need it to add value to our products or patent services, think of new strategies, gain market competition, or imagine how to get the capital we need. The new ideas are the oxygen that the company needs to grow, but they don't always arrive on time.

We have bad news: if you sit down to wait for inspiration to come, you will not achieve anything. Much less if you do it in front of the TV or spend hours on social networks. Being creative is a skill like invention ideas that can be promoted with space, time, and some habits. According to experts, these are the most important:

1. Clean your mind

Hyperactivity, anxiety, and stress limit our ability to generate ideas. To give our thoughts a rest (especially the negatives) and activate the most creative side of the brain (the right one), there is nothing more effective than meditating. Start with five minutes a day, and gradually increase the time of your sessions.

2. Get in touch with nature

Enclosed spaces, technology and daily life in cities disconnect us from our emotions and bodily sensations. When you feel overwhelmed and limited by your logical thoughts, simply go for a walk in a park or any green space and enjoy what happens around you. If possible, do it alone, to focus on the experiences of the moment and forget everything you have to solve when you return to the office.

3. Listen to music

A favorite song can have an immediate impact on our mood. It is proven that certain melodies, such as classical music, can relax and stimulate the right side of our brain. When you are working on a new project, do it with background music, which obviously does not distract your attention. This is the best way to awaking your creative energy by music.

4. Let the artist inside you out

Do some creative activity that has fun, motivates and connects with your interior. It can be playing an instrument, taking a dance class or participating in a writing workshop. The important thing is to experience new things, get out of your comfort zone and free your mind, so enjoy the process and don't be too demanding of yourself about the results. Give space to these moments in your agenda as if it were the most important event of the week.

5. Travels

We don't always have time or we have the budget, but between changing the furniture in your room or visiting another country or a nearby city, choose the latter option. Knowing spectacular landscapes, new cultures and especially people with another way of seeing life is the best way to cut with routine and an inexhaustible source of creativity. It is also a good way to recover the energy and motivation we need when we feel stuck and overwhelmed by the responsibilities of the business.

Social Media Or Soul Media

To the generation that cares way too much about affirmation.

  • This semester I am taking the ever so famous class, Writing 101. Walking into it, I had heard the horror stories about each major assignment. I have to admit, it’s not a class that I am fond of. But, major assignment #2 got me thinking, we had to create a research question based off of a topic that we are interested in.

Two weeks prior, I watched a very interesting documentary on Netflix. Miss Representation was recommended to me by one of my friends and I have to say the topic is absolutely mind blowing. Social Media and Female Body Image. How Social Media makes girls see this unnatural perfection of ‘beauty’ that really doesn’t exist. But female body image isn’t the only thing affected by social media.

Sex And The Church

A letter to fellow believers.

  • I know many of you just read that title and thought it was scandalous to see something so “risque” in the same setting as something holy. Well guess what – sex is part of that. Everyone seems to think they are separate, which makes since because most people treat them as though they are complete polar opposites. Shall we think this through?

Who created the Church body? God. Who created the body? Also God. If we know God to be the creator of all things, we cannot leave sex out of that equation. God created sex, people! Praise Him! Like all great things, the world has twisted and perverted it. The world has stained it so badly that even many church congregations see it only as stained and keep quiet about that part of God’s word. Many people know that God told Adam and Eve to “be fruitful and multiply” (Genesis 1:28), but a lot of people overlook the entirety of Song of Solomon. The entire book is dedicated to telling of the love and sex between man and wife. God blessed us with the gift of intimacy, one to be shared between husband and wife. Church if we teach of sex as the blessing that it is, more people will start treating it as such. If we stop viewing sex as this unspeakable act, the temptation would be lessened. With the fall of man, humans naturally desire things they should not have. So if more people speak of it with gladness and praise, and do not hide it in the darkness as if it were vile, fewer people would be drawn to it for the wrong reasons. More people would appreciate it for what it is: a gift from God.

An open letter to my father
The Truth About My Parents' Divorce

Considering im 18 now & you're one of the best men i've ever met since you have a child; me. I want you to know that I love you, more than anyone, I love you. I don't forgive you for the way you hurt my mother. I'm hurt because you broke our family. Thing went down hill the day you found Laquita. You we're distant & shortly after my mother turned into the coldest, saddest women to walk past me. She's my best friend & so are you. Not one day goes by where I don't wonder what she did wrong. How on earth could you trade your family & the women who loved you unconditionally for a home wrecker? Sounds dumb to me.
