Creativity Tips: Change Your Space

To give your creativity a quick boost, change your creative environment -- without leaving your space or spending a penny.

How? Take a hint from decorating entrepreneur Mary Carol Garrity: Clean off a bookshelf.* Take everything off, dust, then put different items on the shelves -- or rearrange the items you had. Put the poetry on the top shelf. Change the family photos. Use journals as bookends.

Now, stand back and admire your work!

P.S. Please. I can hear you groaning through cyberspace. If you can't imagine cleaning the ENTIRE bookshelf, then just tackle one shelf. Size matters, and one teeny, tiny shelf is a good start.

P.P.S. The photo is a bookshelf from Sigmund Freud's study. Analyze that. Rooms like this make me go into a creative coma. But, we're all different ...

Should it be something about book shelves?:)

I think i'm gonna change my make up things' shelf with the new ones. There're many things i haven't been using for a long time and many of them unnecessary anymore.
Very good idea Jen!
