Each of us faces a creative crisis from time to time. Sometimes ideas seem to have run out and inspiration is nowhere to be found.

At times like these, it's helpful to have a few proven methods on hand to help get your creative juices flowing again. Here are ten ways that will help you find inspiration even in the most difficult times, writes the telegram channel “Start Something!”.

1. Listen to music

Music has an amazing ability to influence our emotions and thinking. Numerous studies have shown that music can increase creativity and help focus. And for this it is not necessary to listen to classical music. Choose a genre you like and let yourself be immersed in the melodies.

2. Take a shower

A hot or cold shower can be a great place to think. Water helps to relax and free the mind, which promotes the emergence of new ideas. The feeling of freshness after a shower can also give you energy for new achievements.

3. Take a walk

A simple walk in the fresh air can do wonders for your imagination. Research from Stanford University has shown that even a short walk can significantly increase the level of creativity. Observe the environment, pay attention to details – this can become a source of new ideas.

4. Go where there are a lot of people

Go to a mall, cafe, or some event where you can people watch. Observing the behavior and interaction of others can inspire you with new ideas or give impetus to your own projects.

5. Lie down to sleep

A full-fledged sleep is not only a guarantee of health, but also a source of inspiration. Whether you're looking to get inspiration from your dreams or simply rest and clear your mind, sleep can be the key to creativity. Sometimes ideas come by themselves after sleep.

6. Borrow ideas

Borrowing rather than copying is an important aspect of the creative process. Look at what already exists and think about how you could improve it or turn it into something new. This can be a starting point for your own ideas.

7. Go to a quiet place

Be alone with nature in a peaceful atmosphere. Resting in a quiet place will help clear your head of unnecessary thoughts and make room for creative ideas. Nature itself can be a source of inspiration.

8. Talk to someone

Communicating with other people can give your imagination a boost. But don't just chat – really get to know someone new and try to get deeper into the conversation. An open dialogue can lead to new ideas and perspectives.

9. Write down all ideas

Use apps like Evernote or Dropbox to keep a journal of ideas. Write down everything that comes to your mind – from notes and screenshots to articles on interesting topics. This will allow you to store and structure your thoughts so that you can return to them later.

10. Get in the car and go

Sometimes a change of scenery is all you need. If you have the opportunity, get in the car and drive without a specific destination. Traveling can be a great way to distract yourself and find new sources of inspiration.

Each of these ways can help you overcome a creative crisis and find new ideas. The main thing is to be open to new experiences and not be afraid to experiment.
