How to stay creative while your stressed?

We think creativity is something common. Some people might be more creative than others but what is creativity actually? Creativity is something really complex and scientist still don’t know the exact answer but they do know a lot already. Creativity is an outcome, idea, process that is useful, relevant and a solution. Creativity takes place in the brain and is about making connections between previous experience but also between the two sides of the brain.

You might recognise the feeling of feeling less creative when you are really busy or stressed. The more stress, the less creative. Does it work that why in your brain or is it something you just feel. But how do you stay creative while you’re stressed? For this research I found out ways to keep on stimulation your creativity in busy times.

Research question:

On what way can you keep on stimulation your creativity in busy times?

Sub questions:

What is creativity?
How does creativity works?
How do you become less creative while being busy?
What happens with the brains when you are busy?
To what extent can you influence your own creativity?
Motivation:
Why do I pick creativity as a subject? I run into this problem myself that it feels like I am ‘losing’ creativity during busy times with stress and less spare time. I would love to find a way for myself (that might work for others as well) to keep on stimulation creativity at any time.

This is not only important for this stage in life, being a student, but this might be use full for the rest of the working life. That’s why this subject is CMD relevant because with the likely upcoming career you need to be creative and work under pressure.

Synopsis

 

We all know charities (non-profit organisations). A lot of people make an effort for charities for example by donating money, becoming a member or volunteer. You only donate to an organisation that you care about and trust. But when do you trust a non-profit organisation?

I am doing research about the link with credibility and art-direction. The first thing that came to my mind were colours. When a non-profit organisation uses green for example, they look more trustworthy than orange.

But there must be much more reasons and there are. There are a lot of things important to achieve credibility by brands. For example trust, authenticity and transparency. But going back to the link with art-direction, I will do research about art-direction in a lot of ways. Colours of course but also shapes, sizes, text, photography and much more.

To understand what credibility actual is, I also do research about dignity and belief because we only do an effort for non-profit organisation if you trust them.
