Music: Playing soothing and mellifluous music motivates you from within while boosting your creativity. If you don’t believe my words then try listening to a mesmerizing track while writing an essay. It will help you write better and with an uninterrupted flow of words and thoughts.
Adhere to Pre-defined Deadlines: Deadlines and creativity are the exact opposite of two ends. Creativity doesn’t care about time, day, and night while deadlines compel a creative artist or writer to finish his or her work within a scheduled timeframe.
With an imminent deadline in mind, a person tends to procrastinate less and focuses more on their actual work at hand. It certainly works as a psychological trick to boost one’s creative abilities.
Greenery All-Around: Make your work surrounding cleaner, calmer, happier, and greener. Paint your walls green and grow green plans around your office or room. Greenery offers a conducive work environment apart from stimulating your creative thoughts and level of concentration.

Once the stimulus of self-reward or rewarding yourself comes to mind, it will enhance your productivity and creative skills.
Concentration and Mindfulness: One of the primary reasons why some work lacks creativity is because people get bored and adopt an easy route to solve such a task.
But it’s a strict no-no. You have to learn the art of practising mindfulness—you have to understand your responsibilities. Mindfulness at work will keep you on your toes and won’t let you get distracted.
Emotional Touch: Creativity has a lot to do with your emotions and thoughts. If you are someone who adds an emotional touch to their art—then those artistic creations tend to outperform others.
However, adding too much emotion can backfire as it may make a certain task biased. Every artist needs to strike a perfect balance between what he wants to convey and emotions attached to the same.
Psychologically, treat your work as a kid; you will never run out of creativity.
