Harnessing that attentiveness and directing it outward allows you to see projects, art, and the world in general in a more thoughtful, profound way. And whether you're an analyst, artist, educator, or student, being in love helps clear mental blocks that normally hinder your ability to complete a project.
You gain a big-picture view of the world
A study from the University of Amsterdam found that love makes us think about our lives in a more global, big-picture way. This is different from the way we typically think about sex, which is based more on short-term gratification than actual, long-term attachment to a person.
This helps you think outside of the box in a more creative, unusual way and makes it easier to envision a finished product.
You get inspired in new ways
Love enhances all your senses. Smell, touch ,and sight are heightened and the world takes on a new, beautiful glow. Love actually has the power to alter the very way our minds work to process information.
Historically, artists used specific people as muses: modes of artistic and poetic inspiration. Muses were often considered divine, but could also be humans and lovers.
