Take part in a creative challenge
Creatives organize events around the world that consist of finishing a project in a day. For example, the initiative 24 Hour Project calls on photographers from around the world to document human realities and make people aware of global issues, all in one day.

Visit a museum
If you love the arts, science, history or culture, spend a day in a museum. You are sure to find interesting exhibitions or activities that will inspire you.
And you can even get to know some of the world’s greatest museums digitally. Museums such as the Louvre, Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Vatican Museums, and the NASA Space Center offer virtual tours. You will find various collections and museums near you on the Google Arts & Culture web page.

Start a creative journal
A great way to unlock your creativity is to keep a journal or artist's notebook. When you start recording your ideas, concerns, graphic resources or lists of things you want to do, you'll see your creativity start to flow and you'll spend more time on your personal projects.
In the course Illustration Techniques to Unlock your Creativity, Adolfo Serra shares techniques and exercises to create an artistic notebook that will give you many new ideas and be the beginning of your own pictorial universe.
Redo your workspace
An organized workspace will help your ideas and inspiration flow better. Studies show that an organized space increases productivity and the feeling of happiness at work. Some things you can do are donate or discard items you don't use, search for inspirational images, and redesign your tool settings.
