A few things that have helped me-

1. Read something short but interesting, for example the book "What is your dangerous idea?" has ideas in a few short pages that will make you start thinking.

2. Watch something from HOPE, TED, a short Google Talk etc

3. Search Sourceforge for a project that does something similar to the code you are working on, look at the code and think how it is similar and different from what you are working on.
