Feeling like you're trapped in a creative rut? Try painting the walls of your room blue and dimming the lights. Studies have shown that blue-colored walls and dim lighting are conducive for creating a creatively stimulating environment.
If finding a blue-colored room is too much of a hassle, try working in a cafe with background noise and finding funny YouTube videos, as laughter can help clear your mind from the anxiety of being creatively stuck.
On a more abstract level, work with creative restrictions and try reframing or recontextualizing your creative problem to see things from a fresh perspective that can unlock some new ideas.
