Want To Be Creative? Don't Ignore Your Physical Surroundings
Here are some of the techniques and how I used them in my home:
Designate a creative space (Tactic #1)
I have a workspace that I found myself avoiding. Both my role as a Desire Map facilitator and as a writer require creativity. I decided to focus my attention on making it a place to spark my creativity. The books suggests using the space religiously, but also to consider your entire home as an idea lab.
Look at something blue (Tactic #2)
I already had a lamp with a blue lampshade, a diffuser in blue glass, a blue keyboard, and a blue mouse. I hung a scroll with a blue background. The background on my laptop screen is also mainly blue.
Work under a lofty ceiling (Tactic #3)
The entranceway to our home has very high ceilings, but I find the room cold, so I decided to stick where I am. The scroll that I hung with a blue background is a vertical piece of art, which also helps to create the cathedral effect. Plus, I have long drapes.
Take in the view (Tactic #4)
The view outside inspires in the summer when the tree has leaves but is dreary in the winter. Instead, I added artwork featuring the natural world, specifically gardens.
