This feels like a different world.

There's a reason for that.  The conceptual space of languages like clojure
is indeed radically different than the conceptual space of "imperative"
languages.  Think Turing (or maybe VonNeuman) machine v. lambda calculus.
Computationally equivalent, but conceptually very different.

Has anyone experienced a sharp increase in their problem solving abilities
after switching to Clojure?

Yes!  Well, maybe not problem _solving_, but certainly problem _defining_
is more commodious with lambda calc, at least to me.

I have been working my way through Living Clojure an Oreilly book.

My curiosity got the better of me and I wondered if anyone here had some
suggestions for resources/
particular tips/any advice for improving Clojure skills. Does anybody have
any websites used for solving
Clojure problems? other than the most popular ones.

Clojure skills is one thing; skill in computing the lambda way is another
thing.  Lots of good clojure books and websites out there, but don't limit
yourself.  the 2 books that made a diff for me are:

SICP (the Wizard Book):

The Little Schemer: https://mitpress.mit.edu/books/little-schemer

Everything those books teach you applies to Clojure.
