Every artist, writer or musician will experience an occasional blockage. It is basically the same as writers block. You have the desire to do something productive, you have an idea, you have the time but for some reason you just cannot seem to get started or you just cannot seem to overcome an obstacle in your way. Fitness workouts are great for overcoming these creativity blockages with which you might be struggling and certain workouts are terrific for improving your creativity. So what workouts should you do when you want to improve your creative thinking? Well, here is a list of the top workouts that you can definitely try.
Go for a run
Running is a great cardiovascular workout. It promotes blood flow to your brain and throughout your body which in return clears your thoughts. Running is also great for improving creativity because you get to enjoy a lot of fresh air and beautiful scenery which might just give you a good idea for your art.
Start working out at home
Creating art can get boring especially if you are working on the same piece for hours on end. If you find yourself feeling frustrated, without ideas and half asleep then it might be time for a home workout. An early morning workout will give you the best fitness results and will boost your creativity since your mind is much sharper for the day.
Explore and work out by canoeing
Canoeing is quite adventurous. You get to see beautiful places and you actually get a great workout while you are paddling along the river or across a large pond.
Cycling is a great cardiovascular workout and is also great for improving creativity since you can go much further on your bike than on a hike and see more scenery, enjoy different circumstances and explore a different area each day.
Go horseback riding
Horseback riding is the ultimate sport to unleash your creative senses. Horseback riding is romantic, adventurous, fun, wild and beautiful. In fact a lot of people use horse riding as therapy to help them deal with trauma, overcome stress and anxiety and to basically just get to terms with bad occurrences in their lives. If you want to be more creative then you can definitely do so by trying to see the world from a horse’s perspective.
Give sailing a try
What better way to get some inspiration for a beautiful work of art than by sailing. Sailing is glorious, breathtaking and great fun. It is also quite a challenge when done right and can give you a great workout while you are developing your creative capabilities.
Sign up with a boot camp
While boot camp probably won’t give you the best scenery and most beautiful views, it is still great for unleashing creativity since you will be meeting up with new people each day, sharing ideas with these new friends each day and gets to explore different characters, desires, likes and tastes from people that are likely to buy your art.
