That mind-altering drugs and creativity go well together is no news. We all know the stories of how the creative minds of artists were able to break new ground under the influence of psychedelics. If you are not planning to trip yourself, you can also enjoy more creativity with microdosing. And in a safe, non mind-altering way.
The miracle of creativity
Those who want to enjoy more creativity with microdosing may wonder how it would work. The concept of creativity is not so easy to put into words. It is not just about getting more ideas, but also about imagination, problem solving, gaining insights and the ability to create something new.
Can creativity be measured? Can you get more of it and how do you know? Microdosing research measured the creative process by studying two ways of thinking. There is divergent thinking, which stands for out-of-the-box thinking. Convergent thinking is about focusing on making the right choice among multiple solutions and being able to reflect on them. Research shows that microdosing stimulates both ways of thinking.
Looking at divergent, creative thinking and convergent, solution-oriented thinking gives us a foothold to consider, how to enhance activities such as drawing, painting or writing with microdosing.
Painting and microdosing
If you love painting, then microdosing can help support and enhance your performance. Anecdotal accounts suggest that microdosing can boost creativity. People report easier divergent thinking, using new techniques to think out-of-the-box. For example, someone used their young kittens to have their paws painted on the painting. There are also those who indicate that microdosing actually helped them develop their own unique style as an artist.
On the other hand, convergent thinking can be useful because it helps you focus more on the details. For example, if you have the full image you want to paint in mind, microdosing can help you stay with the process, work out the details and complete the piece until all the finishing touches are in place.
What is also a plus of microdosing is that it can cause you to regain enthusiasm for the creative process. Sometimes your inner critic can run that enthusiasm into the ground, causing you to no longer experience joy in your hobby or work. Microdosing can quiet this voice, restoring joy in creating. Or perhaps you really enjoyed drawing or painting as a child and microdosing can cause you to find this love again. You can also benefit as a professional artist. It can help you break through creative blocks and regain a sense of adventure in your work.
Creativity and microdosing in writing
In writing, microdosing can also have a positive impact. It can support the process of coming up with new ideas and the ability to focus on details and finish your work. Everyone knows the famous “writer’s block,” where a writer is stuck in the story or can’t come up with a new story. User experiences show that microdosing can be one of the most powerful methods for getting out of writer’s block and even avoiding it.
People report that microdosing inspired them to start writing as a hobby. But there are also professional authors who report experiencing more self-confidence and that they get into the flow more easily and often. In addition, microdosing also promotes creativity at the micro level. So besides giving you great ideas for a whole new plot for a book, this method allows you to focus on details. For example, it is easier to devise rich and detailed characters, describe beautiful environments or powerful dialogue.
Personal experiences with microdosing
Many stories can be found about microdosing for more creativity and originality. For example, one designer says his sense of empathy contributes to his creativity. He can better sense what his visitors need and adjust his products accordingly.
There are also users who indicate that microdosing also promotes creativity through other means. One nail artist reports that it helps to handle stress better. Stress can be hugely inhibiting to creativity, and microdosing has allowed her to find balance better, and peace has returned to her work. She manages to focus better and therefore paint better.

They reported noticing improvements in their mood, concentration, creativity and how social they felt. No side effects or health risks were reported.
