6 Tips on How to Stimulate Creative Thinking as an Animator

Tips on How to Stimulate Your Creative Thinking

getting good sleep and recording fleeting thoughts stimulate creative thinking for animators
  • Get enough sleep. Sleep boosts our creativity and problem-solving abilities, providing innovative ideas or answers to furstrating conflicts.
  • The best ideas often come from fleeting thoughts. Record them
new things and freely wandering minds stimulate creative thinking for animators
  • Take interest in something that is outside your area of expertise. This is especially effective in helping you think in new ways.
  • Let your mind freely wander. Daydreaming is not only proven to relieve boredom but can also help inspire new ideas.
being active and firing up your brain can lead to creative thinking for animators
  • Be physically active. Exercise stimulate creative thinking, and the brainpower boost can last for a few hours.
  • As strange as it may sound, try to engage in nerve-racking situations once in a while to fire up your brain. Fear and frustration can trigger innovative thinking.
