two hand gesture

use both hands to gesture, this will cause the brain to use both sides as there is some science to say that each hand us influenced more by the opposite side of the brain. Get both brain halves working by using both hands to talk... try it.

Write Freely

Take a few minutes to put some ink down on some paper, don't restrict yourself in what you are drawing or writing, just open up your thoughts and let the pen or pencil be the guide. Do not rule out anything until after you are done and then you can sift through what you have and pick the best.

I have seen an artist doing warm-up exercises go through a ream of paper during just the hand, wrist and elbow warm up session before he even thought about really drawing something interesting. Now he always had some interesting things in those exercises but that was not the goal during the stretch.

Get the pencil on the paper and make it move around!

Normally we don't hear the suggestion to daydream very often or at all, but another way to take just a few minutes and boost some creativity is to daydream. There are those that tend to have a more creative outlook on the issues and challenges in front of them when their mind is wandering. And the idea of being balled up in front of the computer screen just doesn't sound very creative thought provoking to me. So give it a shot, let the mind wander for a few minutes and see what kind of a journey you can have!

Put yourself else where?

Think about something far away, either time or place, and let your imagination run wild. Think of as many of the things happening around you, use all your senses to imagine what could be going on. Get crazy with all the details and activities and events and your will be surprised at all the fun you can have.
