Everyone has creative tendencies and although they are more latent in some than in others their powers can be unlocked, as The Creativity Workout sets out to demonstrate. Armed with a positive mental approach and the confidence to start thinking differently, you are already halfway to being creative. Packed with essential advice you will learn - how to use both sides of your brain to maximum effect, how to use self-hypnosis and the ‘edge’ of sleep to gain sharper thinking; and how brainstorming and encouraging streams of consciousness will throw off the shackles of rigid thought; in step five the author reassesses the art of mediation, relaxation and visualisation as methods to cleanse the mind; while step six explores how libido and mortido (our destructive side) can be used constructively to fuel creative thought. Each step features examples & practical exercises. Chapter Three broadens the scope of the creative process by exploring how outside agencies (health, diet, exercise and listening to music) can both help and hinder the creative process; while the final section offers (the now creative) reader advice on advancing their ideas, including time management, how to structure a project and how to present your work to others.
