Get creative by seeing with child-like eyes, spotting your most creative ideas and escaping from conventional thinking.
Creativity is not just for ‘creative types’ like artists — everyone needs it.
The ordinary routines of daily life are enlivened by new ideas.
How we eat, travel, exercise, socialising, work and even simply think are all enhanced by the unconventional.
