You can't force creative ideas. Ideas come from a calm mind. My favorite way to calm my mind is exercise, and my favorite new form of exercise is Nia. Nia is a "body-mind-spirit fitness and lifestyle practice." I started taking Nia classes 6 months ago. The first class was definitely a little intimidating (free form dancing brings up all kinds of feelings). "Am I doing it right? Do I look silly?" But if you just let go, if you just go with the flow, you leave class calm, energized, and brimming with ideas.
