This week’s blog topic is on how to improve creativity when you’re feeling stuck. Maybe you have writer’s block? Maybe you feel drained and can’t get the momentum to keep going of new ideas? You know what, I get it!
Just today writing this blog I felt hesitate and didn’t know what to write about. I usually have so many ideas, but on this wet and cold Sunday my brain was struggling and I nearly gave up – being real with you all is important to me and I do have days where I struggle.
But I feel I have a duty to you all and I want to fulfil that role and be there for you. That was my promise. That is what I will do. So now here is the good part, this is where I tell you my top tips of how to get out of this stifled mindset and go the creative juices flowing.
Firstly, take a walk and get fresh air. I am not going to tell you how long for, it is recommended 30 minutes a day but even just 5 minutes will be better than none. This walk will get your body moving, get endorphins pumping and blood flowing. The fresh air will also bring new waves of breath and fresh oxygen to you which will be great for your mental stimulation. This after I took this photo in one of the parks near me and it felt like it captured this blog. The light at the end of the tunnel. There is a way out of this.
Secondly, get some water – rehydrate yourself. Go on, get a large glass of water and make sure you finish it. This will again be great for your internal organs and flush out nasty toxins – ew!
Lastly, take a second to breathe. I felt like I was rushing around with a busy mind and didn’t give my higher conscious self the chance to talk to me and filer down the information that I needed. So take a second, pause… close your eyes and breath 3 nice deep breaths and ask yourself this “Higher self, what creative messages do you need me to know?” Sit with it for a moment and then it should start coming back to you.
Give yourself time, these things can be difficult and the more you force the more resistance you may feel. Be one with your mind and body.
You got this. Affirm to yourself – I am creative!
