The age we live in has us looking at our laptops and phones most of the time during the day and it can be difficult to break the habit. However, going on a “media diet” can be really beneficial for your creativity. Here’s how to do that.

Stop Consuming

Are you aware of how much information you consume in one day? So much consumption can be overwhelming and make your brain incapable of coming up with original, creative ideas. Start slowing the consumption down little by little if you can’t do it at once.

Choose What You’re Consuming

There are infinite options available on the internet but you should aim to consume the content that you want to create. Studying the field you want to thrive in can be very beneficial.

Have Fun

The creative process should be fun! Allow yourself to play and take your time — think about how a kid would do it.
