Boosting your CreativityBoost creativity by sleeping more, laughing more, and having more fun!!!
Creativity is critical to our everyday lives. Creativity helps us solve problems and discover new and interesting ways of doing things. When we lack creativity several negative things begin to happen, we become bored with things that used to give us pleasure, and we get angry and frustrated at simple things that never used to bother us.
One of the simplest but most difficult to master is getting more sleep... The human body craves routine and this is something you're not going to be able to fix overnight. However, if you start a conscious effort to create better sleeping habits, in a short amount of time, you'll see and feel the benefits of a good nights rest.
It's important to develop a sense of humor, recent studies indicate that the majority of executives believe employees with a sense of humor do a better job than those with little or none. People who don't have a good sense of humor tend to be a stickler for the rules, and are very in-the-box thinkers.
Having more fun though, is extremely important in generating creative thinking and breaking through roadblocks. People who have fun on the job are more creative and productive, make better decisions, and get along better with colleagues. They also are much less likely to call in sick or show up late to work than people who aren't having fun. Another study, by Adam Anderson at the University of Toronto, says that to unlock your creative potential, "go out and play" to lift your mood, and then come back to the problem. Studies say that a culture of fun can improve work quality and mental health five different ways:
Fun breaks up boredom and fatigue
Fun fulfills human social needs
Fun increases creativity and willingness to help
Fun improves communication
Fun breaks up conflict and tension
