I think we can all agree: creativity block is awful. It can strike at the worst times and suck the motivation and passion right out of you. It doesn’t discriminate. It doesn’t care whether you’re writing a book, painting a commission, or even typing up a proposal or report at work.
Unfortunately, creativity block happens to the best of us. Let us help with these awesome ways to fight back:
1. Get outside. Breathe some fresh air. Get some sunshine.
This could seem overly simple, but sometimes all you need is just a super quick moment outside to get those (creative) juices flowing.
2. Take a jog around the block. Do some push-ups. Cram in some Piyo.
Getting your body moving and your blood pumping gets more oxygen to the brain. All of these things will aid in crushing through that barrier and getting your sexy creativity back.
3. Go on an adventure. Explore a new area. Change your scenery.
This is a sure-fire way to get a much-needed brilliantly creative breakthrough. Just sitting in your backyard rather than your office, walking in the park, or going on a full blown adventure to White Castle can set your creative soul on fire.
4. Pretend you’re talking to your best friend…
…and then walk your pretend best friend through your project. Yes, talk to yourself. Loudly. In public. Don’t get arrested. Although, getting arrested could probably kick start your creativity, too, as you produce several drawings and short stories about the experience.*
*NOTE: Please don’t get arrested lol.
5. Listen to music while meditating after doing yoga.
Because Chakras. And because meditation, music, and yoga are all incredibly effectively in moving your mindset from blocked to flowing. Gives you a super boost to your health, too! Score!
