Boost Creativity Using Our Five Senses

Sep 4, 2007
Creative thinking can work wonders to human mind and activities. People have been looking out for various methods and measures to boost creativity. Experts believe that creative thinking is directly related to the energy level of human brain. The article below offers you methods to boost your creative side of the brain via utilizing five vital senses.

Sight, hearing, tastes, smell and touch are the five vital senses that provide the brain with several pieces of information each second. The reason that we do not realize this is because we get familiar with the environment we live in and fail to pick up the details of what is available to us. Hence we usually fail to get creative ideas.

The basic idea is to break the barrier and start noticing the details of things around you. Here is an exercise to put your five senses in action. Try thinking of a book that you thoroughly enjoyed reading and would like to read again and again. Now, close your eyes and keeping the book in mind work on your five senses. Here are some points to help you enjoy this experience.

1)Sight:
Think about what appeals your eye as you have a vision of this book. Come in to a conclusion clearly and sum up whether it is the size, color, title or the art work of this book that appeals you.

2)Hearing:
What do you hear as you turn the pages of this book? Does it sound stiff, fine or confusing? Concentrate and think about how does it feel when you proceed with the book with an intention to read in further towards the end of it.

3)Smell:
Does your favorite book have a peculiar smell? Does it remind you of some place?

4)Touch:
Try to recollect the feeling you had when you first touched this book. Then think of what you felt each time you touched it. Think of what the texture of the cover made you feel like. Does it feel smooth, grainy or rough?

5)Taste:
This may sound bizarre! However, taste has an important role to play here. You need to imagine the taste your tongue provides you when you think of this book. Yes, think of the flavor of your favorite book.

Once you are through with working out on your five senses, your brain is left with certain images and these pictures would enhance your power of concentration.

Remember, that you require putting in a lot of sensations into your creative thinking activity. The exercise for creative thinking mentioned in this article will storm your brain with excellent ideas.

In case, you feel that you are not getting good ideas and pictures in your mind, you may be suffering from a state called "stuckness". You need to work out with your five senses again. Just think about the color that is associated with this feeling. Also think about the kind of sound you want to provide this feeling. Creativity can be enhanced with the help of using five senses. The more you practice, the more you enhance your creativity.
