I just read that researchers at John Hopkins used an MRI to study the brains of jazz musicians and found that improvisation – which is the essence of spontaneity – activated the part of the brain associated with the highly creative ‘flow’ state.
He went on to say that every day spontaneity can help you find all aspects of your life and work.
Have some free time? Don’t schedule anything! Go for a walk, get some exercise, do something you wouldn’t normally ‘do’.
It’s been proven that will make you much more productive.
