How to awake your creativity

“Creativity is the power to connect what seems incoherent.” ~ William Plomar

Can we really become more creative?

 Being creative is a skill that can revive  only if we are willing to do so. Each one of us has the ability to create, explore and play. Each one is set in a natural curiosity that constantly provokes the question: “How does the world create’”. Over time we have began to stifle that part of ourself.

 Usually, the human brain craves to go down the easy path, not the most creative. It is lazy by nature. When faced with a problem, the brain first looks in its database for ready solutions that have been used in the past and have been unsuccessful. He does not waste energy to generate a new solution when old ones can work just as fine.

What happens if you put yourself tempted to challenge your brain?Start putting it in different or more complex issues than those that are used to handle Then go beyond the standard and increase your creativity.

Anything can inspire us. We can increase creativity step by step.

Gain a first time experience! Take:

  • – A digital camera or camera phone
  • – Notepad and pen
  • – Folders, boxes, scrapbook, message board.

Another way to increase creativity is to change the habits and stereotypes.

Do you have a strict routine in your daily life? Do you get up at the same time,do  you dress a certain way, do you go to work as you walk down the same road every day, in two words do you move on autopilot?

This is a killer for your creativity!

Chocolate Hills, Philippines

Almost all children would be glad a lot if they see a mountain of chocolate. And what about the first 268m hill made of chocolate?

Consisting of 1268 hills with a perfect conical shape of the same size , spread over an area of 50 square kilometers, this highly unusual geological formation, called Chocolate Hills , is located in Bohol , Philippines. There are several hypotheses for the formation of the hills. Including eroded limestone oceanic volcanism , uplift of the seafloor and a more recent theory is that as an ancient active volcano that was self-destructed , it spewed huge blocks of stone which were then covered  with limestone and thrust forth from the ocean .

Naturally, in Bohol people will tell you two stories about the origin of the hills. Better known for the two giants who are pelted with stones and large rocks. After almost two days of battle , they felt completely exhausted and soon forgot why they have started to fight and left as friends.
A more romantic version of a giant called Arogi who fell in love with Aloya . When Aloya died Arogi highly grieved and wept , and his huge tears rained down on the ground and then hardened , becoming the Chocolate Hills as evidence of his eternal sorrow.
