3. Magazines, books and newspapers
Don’t you love the smell of freshly printed spreadsheets and crisp pages of magazines, books and newspapers? Believe it or not, it’s one of the best sources to finding inspiration. Newspapers have legit sources of current events, magazines come up with good features. Then books, novel or not, it is most likely well-written that will inspire you.
Who doesn’t love travelling? Even companies do team-building activities out-of-town so they are not just stuck in the four walls of their building. For most of us, the first thing that comes into mind in the word “travel” is flying away, however, travelling is not limited to that. Why not take a bus when you always ride train? Or take a walk than riding a tricycle.
Ahh..music, it makes us smile, cry, or dance to its rhythm. Many researches shared that music is a good simulator to motivate a person. Coordinate your choice of playlist according to what you are planning to do. If you’re trying to conceptualize an art project, do listen to something slow but not to snooze you off. Or stay away from metal rock. Sometimes it really depends on your character as well, you should know what music gets you into the mood.
This is probably a cliché already but we can’t help suggesting this. Maybe you could try noticing other angles when you visit museums, not only the artworks displayed, it could be the structure of the museum, its architecture and all that. Anything that you can observe can inspire you. Search for exhibits around town, check what the local artists are up to.
