Feeling stuck in a rut creatively? Try meditation to kickstart your creative process. Although meditation’s purpose is to calm the mind and reduce stress level, it also has a physical effect on your brain.
The simple act of regular meditation frees up the parts of your brain that deal with memory, focus and cognitive ability. Research has shown that meditating stimulates the high-frequency brain waves that signal attention and perception — all qualities associated with creativity.
Modern life causes us to be constantly overstimulated, but research shows meditation can reduce the hypervigilance of your reptile brain, increasing creative potential and more.
