New York Central Park and Creative Ideas
Hey there, it’s James Taylor, keynote speaker on creativity, innovation, and future trends. Today I’m in New York, I’m actually on the Upper East Side of New York City in Manhattan. Staying here at the Carlyle hotel, a very famous hotel, lots of very kind of creative, interesting people have stayed here over the years.
New York Central Park
And the reason we chose to stay at this hotel is next to one of my favorite things to do places to visit here in New York City which is Central Park. Now, the reason that I like being close to Central Park being next to what we call a public luxury, how many have a wonderful parking garage walking on every morning, later in the afternoon, have little passage yachters is because, for me, it kind of sparks creativity for me is a place I go to get ideas to rejuvenate myself as well.
Generate Creative Ideas
Now, there are some great studies done recently by the University of British Columbia and the University of Berlin that looked at what colors could affect your levels of creativity. What they found was the best color to have around you if you want to spark ideas and generate more ideas, is the color green. This is one of the reasons why we often get some of our best ideas when we’re out in nature. And that color green is all around us, the trees and the plants.
So think about this for a second in your own life. Where can you go to have that color green around you maybe there’s a great park near where you live, you can go and spend an hour just kind of ruminating and opening up your mind to possibilities or maybe in your office or home environment. You can add more green into that maybe I’m plants next to you on your desk, for example, to spark that can activate that part of the brain.
So from here in the Carlyle hotel and the Upper East Side of Manhattan, New York. I hope you find that useful. Please make sure that you click subscribe you like this, share it with anyone that you think could use a little bit of inspiration today, and maybe we could do it getting out there in a little bit more green. Take care
