Why do good ideas come to us when they do?

This is the question asked by Jonah Lehrer in his article “The Eureka Hunt.”

As Lehrer points out, “Eureka moments” or “experiences of insight” almost always go hand-in-hand with a mental block—the agonizing, excruciating, frustrating time spent trying to come up with an idea.

Nice to have a few key, practical things one can do enhance creativity.

1. Get Out of the Studio and Relax

2. Read a Book

3. Have a Nap

4. Talk to Someone from a Different Field

5. Document Your Ideas

6. Try Something Completely Different
