We often equate creativity mainly with creative things or products we come across. In PW, generating ideas can be a frustrating because you are wondering how you will eventually produce a creative product? 

Perhaps, what is more worthwhile considering is looking at creativity as a mindset. This blog entry from Huffington Post describes a creative mindset as a answer to boredom.

Creativity is a mind-set, a way of seeing the world. Creativity puts the magic back in life, so not only are we never bored, we are constantly inspired, present, empowered, and – dare I say it – happy.

Look up some of the interesting exercises at exercising a creative mindset. Some notable ones include:

  • Imagine every object is actually alive and talking to you! what would it say?
  • Pretend like you are in an adventure movie, fleeing from a monster, but trying to keep your calm composure to the outside world.

So there, have fun activating your creative mindset to your solutions!
