Things you find on my page are things that I find to be either enticingly beautiful,
incredibly fascinating or down-right hysterical.
Being creative isn’t the same as being smart. The process our brains go through to generate new insights is quite different from when we’re solving analytical problems. You’re not just “born with it” either—the fascinating science behind creativity suggests very specific conditions can enliven your imagination.
In particular, research shows creativity spurs from three things:
- A lot of dopamine—Activities like taking a warm shower, listening to music, cooking and exercising releases dopamine in the brain.
- Relaxation—The dopamine triggers calmness and relaxation.
- Distraction—The relaxation disrupts the commotion in your head. As your subconscious is allowed to meander, it touches on new ideas and plants them into your conscious mind—the “light bulb” moment.
