Creativity is one of the most important elements of having a happy life. I’ve always seen the world with different eyes and creativity is part of this process as an expression of my imagination. Having a creative mind helps you find better solutions to everyday problems, discover new opportunities, find new ways to spend your time, entertain yourself, and improve your life. Creativity is used in every industry, from art, to engineering, from inventing, to cooking, from medicine, to communication.
Creativity comes from the heart, from our passion, from our mind, body and soul.
When working in the creative industry itself, you have to come up all the time with ideas out of the box and this becomes overwhelming at a certain point.
But creativity is a skill that can be trained. To help my creative juices flow and boost the power of my brain I usually listen to music, I read, a take a walk, I daydream, I eat a piece of chocolate. Oh, let’s stop a little over this topic. Because, as you all know, we are what we eat and there is a great connection between creativity and food. I’ve done my research on this topic and I am sharing with you the list with my favorite foods to boost creativity.
I love avocado! There are so many ways you can get creative when cooking with avocado, from delicious guacamole, to salads
or simple sandwiches. Well, avocado Is all about boosting your creativity as this amazing fruit enhances the blood flow and delivers the oxygen your brain cell need.
Walnuts not only share the same shape as the human brain, but they are also known as “food for the brain”. Walnuts are a great snack when you are at the office, and you can combine them with yogurt. Walnuts are reach in healthy fats, omega -3, antioxidants, vitamin E – a powerful brain protector.
Pumpkin seeds are rich in magnesium, proteins and healthy fats. You will feel the energy boost soon after you eat them. I usually sprinkle them on my salad, or I eat them as they are.
I should have started with this one, as I usually begin my day with a cup of green tea – warm during the cold days, and cold during summer. Green tea gives me the energy I need at the beginning of the day, is rich in antioxidants, and improves memory.
When my creativity takes a nosedive, there is one single thing that can save it: chocolate. I am simply mad about sweets, but I have been trying to reduce them as much as possible. I cannot say the same thing about dark chocolate. It helps me beat the midday slump at work and boosts my creativity.
Give these healthy foods a try and let your creative juices flow.
