Here are a few excerpts from an interesting article on how (and why) to inspire your brain, hope you enjoy!: 
" Imagine standing at the edge of a deep canyon, the rocks painted pink and red by the setting sun. The sky seems endless. There's a giant sequoia tree next to you, towering into the heavens.
