Want to increase your creativity? Follow the expert's top 3 tips (and change your working environment)

A simple - yet often overlooked - way is changing your environment: Working in the same setting every day undoubtedly makes it more likely for you to think and act in the same way. That's why you have to test new and unexpected places for your everyday work if you want to increase your creative mindset.

We cannot solve our problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them, Albert Einstein once said. But even though this quote is all over the social media, it's unfortunately not enough to retweet the meme if you want to boost your creativity.

A simple - yet often overlooked - way is changing your environment: Working in the same setting every day undoubtedly makes it more likely for you to think and act in the same way. That's why you have to test new and unexpected places for your everyday work if you want to increase your creative mindset.

In fact, the more impressions we get, the more creativity is born. Sitting in the same spot, talking to the same people reduces the possibility of new thoughts, according to the creativity expert and author Teo Härén, who've helped many companies increase their creativity, and has given us his top 3 tips to increase creativity.

He'd noticed that the concept of activity-based workspaces are growing stronger, and sees that companies are beginning to encourage employees to look for more unique and inspiring spaces outside their facilities.

But the traditional image is still, that hotels and conference facilities are routinely booked and only at larger meetings or workshops. At Gaest.com we want to challenge that: Discovering new exciting spaces shouldn't be difficult nor expensive. In our own experience, it's invaluable to get away from the office when you need to go into the depths of a problem. Shifting to a new physical environment grants you new impressions and energy.

Expert's top 3 tips to increase creativity

  1. Dare to try out new and unexpected places. You might be more focused in a space without windows, get your best ideas on a glass veranda with a view to the water, or maybe you'll get more energy from working in front of a fire?

  2. Keep in mind, that creativity is very personal. Some are inspired by working with beautiful views, while someone else gets distracted. At larger meetings, be responsive and adapt the room to suit as many people as possible.

  3. Test many different spaces. Do not dismiss the "change work environment" concept immediately after just testing three different locations. You may have just chosen wrong.
