Harvesting techniques to use right side of the brain:

Harvesting techniques to use right side of the brain:

1.Free Form Journaling – Writing is a great way to relax your mind and allow your R-mode thoughts and ideas to escape your brain and present themselves onto paper. When ideas pop into your head, write them down, and then elaborate on those ideas. Simple brainstorming on paper can give you the opportunity to clarify your thoughts.

2.Walking – Sometimes the best way to come up with ideas is to simply step away from your desk, relax your mind, and go for a walk. While you're walking though, try not to think about anything, especially the problem you are trying to solve. The goal is to silence your L-mode and give your R-mode the chance to do some work.

3.Image Streaming – This is the process of deliberately observing images in your mind and paying close attention to them. First, pose a problem to yourself or ask yourself a question. Then shut your eyes and relax. As images start to cross your mind describe them out loud. Try to describe as many details as you can using all five senses. This type of thinking can help you discover fresh insights to the problem or question you presented yourself.
