3. Take a creative field trip. Some days you just need to get out of the office — and unless you have a pressing deadline, I say go for it. Going out into the world and experiencing something new can be just the thing to get your creative juices flowing again. Check out a new art exhibit, go on a walking architectural tour or take in an open-air concert. Even if what you do or see is not directly related to your field, it can spark a new creative connection, limbering up your creative muscle so it’s ready when you need it.
