Creative release: Cook something new


When a problem refuses to be solved, it might be time to make yourself something to eat. Cooking is both a routine and creative process. You lean on skills you already have, stroking your competence. And you stretch those muscles with a new recipe or technique that causes your brain to search for patterns and connections. Such a tasty way to your next aha moment.
