How to get (and stay) inspired and creative

- Visit new places
- Try to see the positive in everything, rather than the negative
- Think out loud, even if you’re alone
- Don’t be afraid to make mistakes
- Don’t be afraid to embarrass yourself
- Don’t try to make everything perfect
- Take a different way to school/work
- Sleep well (and enough)
- Listen to music
- Enjoy the silence
- Speak to foreigners
- Don’t be afraid to copy others. It’s very likely that in the process you’ll come up with something original.
- Don’t compare yourself to others. This will just get in the way.
- Turn off your TV and computer
- Read a book. And then read another one.
- Write down your ideas on paper
- Put your heart and time into whatever you decide to do
- Keep your workspace tidy
- Do the things you enjoy more often
- Stop wondering if your parents would approve


Now, this is the way I get by.

    :) Excellent list! I loved this one:
    - Don’t be afraid to copy others. It’s very likely that in the process you’ll come up with something original.
    And I truly believe you about the importance of a tidy working area, although this doesn’t mean that my area is up to scratch. Not by a long shot, sadly.
