Here’s a tip: When the task at hand requires some imagination, taking a walk may lead to more creative thinking than sitting, according to research from the American Psychological Association. It was the walking, not necessarily being outdoors, that made the creative difference. Even participants who walked on treadmills came up with better ideas in the study. Which means that physical activity helps your brain as well as your heart.
