Ever have trouble being creative? I mean, how many new ideas can someone reasonably come up with every day? We all have times when we're more creative and less creative and whenever I have an inspired moment, I'm always trying to figure out how to bottle that juice or vibe or whatever it is and reproduce it for the next time I'm needing a fresh dose of inspiration. But short of a magic formula, here are a few ideas that might help you stir up a fresh wind of inspiration.

1.) Change your surroundings: Try working from a new coffee shop or even just take a notebook and a pen and find a park bench or park your car somewhere with a view.

2.) Music: Not everyone can work with music playing but I find that different music can totally open up new ideas and change my mood in a way that brings out different perspectives - try it and you might be surprised!

3.) Exercise: I know, I know... but we all know that that fresh wave of endorphins after a workout helps open our eyes and clears the mental fog. I'm not saying you have to start a new workout routine, but just try a walk around the block and come back to your desk and you might feel a difference and end up with a new idea.

Happy creating!
