Easy ways for fundraisers to stay creative

Here are some great tips for increasing your ability to stay creative, inventive, and fresh-thinking, from The 99% blog: 8 Counter-Intuitive Ways to Improve Your Well-Being & Creativity:


  1. Eat breakfast.
  2. Sit less.
  3. Exercise in the middle of the day.
  4. Get an office pet.
  5. Shorten your commute.
  6. Use ALL of those vacation days.
  7. Distance yourself from the problem. (Mentally put yourself far away from it; you’ll see it differently.)
  8. Explore your dark side. (Negative emotions like anger and sadness can sometimes propel you forward creatively.)

I can vouch for most of these things. They really do work.

And the future? It’s already here. More.
