Sometimes all you need to spark some creativity is a new view. If you’re used to working in an office or at the kitchen table and feeling like your ideas are stale, switch things up. Pack your laptop bag — don’t forget your charger! — and head to a coffee shop, library, college campus, outdoor shopping area, zoo, park, etc. A simple change of scenery can do wonders for thinking outside the box. 

Experiment with working in locations that are different from your own. Choose places with different colored walls, places that are noisier or quieter than where you work, and even warmer or cooler. You never know how a new environment can help you change the way you think!
