10 Proven Ways To Help Boost Creative Thinking

1. Go blue

Researchers have proven that blue is the best color for encouraging creative thinking. The researchers tracked cognitive performance on more than 600 individuals on tasks requiring either detail-oriented or creative thinking. The tasks were conducted on computers with screen backgrounds that were red, white or blue. The individuals performing tasks on the blue background screens were twice as creative with brainstorming tasks compared to those performing tasks on the other background colors.[1]

What to do: Make a blue work space for your creative projects – paint your desk blue or accessorize with blue items such as bookcases, lamps, etc.
