Here’s a Playlist That’ll Boost Your Creativity

Sponsored By:

One thing about modern working life is that creativity is indispensable. Most of our day-to-day labor involves a ton of this specific skill, whether you’re in the creative industries or not. Nowadays, solving problems and searching for ways to deliver our expertise also involves getting creative. That’s why we need ways to spark creativity at will, often multiple times daily.

Creativity isn’t as easy as flicking a switch, so sometimes, we must develop specific mechanisms and triggers to help foster this essential skill. As it turns out, there are many different ways to train your brain and make it easier for you to get into that headspace, from long-term practices to stuff you can do in a matter of minutes to get those ideas flowing.

One of the most surefire ways to get our heads going is with music, and this is where things get interesting. Music is the kind of art that generates more art and gets us in the mood to create. This is especially true when talking about music we already love and are familiar with. Recalling a sense of emotion and exhilaration from listening to our favorite tunes gets our creative juices flowing. This kind of music gets us to think outside the box since it makes us feel good and confident, sparks us into action, gets us moving, or even gets us right into our feelings and helps us imprint a significant mark into our actions.

However, if you’re inclined to leave everything by the side to concentrate on moving your butt to the music, perhaps a better approach is to put on some instrumental jams. Without vocals and lyrics distracting you and letting the music take you where it wants, your thoughts will drift to a place where you’ll start coming up with new ideas. Instrumentals can be found anywhere, and there’s music built to blend with the background, like ambient and drone, that can still fire up your synapses when listening to it.

We have assembled this playlist of old favorites and new classics to get you in that creative headspace. From Bad Bunny to Santana, as well as other classics, are present to get you in the zone. There’s also some great instrumental music by Latine and Spanish-speaking acts, including Gustavo Santaolalla’s soundtrack for the TV adaptation of The Last Of Us, as well as producers like Rafael Anton Irisarri and Edgar Mondragón, who have slowly evolving tracks that will envelop you with their vibes.

So press play, get in the zone, and leave every other decision in the hands of DoorDash. You don’t need to think through what to have for lunch or dinner after you’re done with your job, so why not fire up the app and order in? What about taking a break and getting those groceries delivered instead of being pressured to go to the store later? You can even order vinyls and speakers to get a better listening experience.

Music and creativity go hand-in-hand. Let us help you find the right sonic mood for your ideas to flow.
