10 Ways to Banish Creative Block
Creative block got you in a funk?
Here are 10 ways to overcome creative block:
Leave the House
This one is for all you stay at home creatives (guilty), there is a big beautiful world to explore.
Take it old school, have a tech free retreat you can visit to let ideas flow with pencil and paper.
Go somewhere new
Get mobile, pack up your stuff and move to a new location. Try working out of your favourite cafe, local community space or plan a co-working day with friends.
Take a stroll
Feel the wind in your hair, the combo of being outside and the endorphins from exercise will make you feel like a million bucks.
Dive into a book
Escape to a fantasy land or get lost in a characters life, it will be sure to take your mind off what is currently stressing you out.
Complete a mindless domestic task
It’s something you know how to do and won’t take a lot of brain power to do so. The repetition sense of accomplishment you get from doing something you know needs to be done.
Take time to relax and free the mind
Stop, breath, unwind - Take a moment to meditate and get back to you
Do something you enjoy
What is that one thing you love to do other than work? Book in 15 minutes and indulge, guilt free).
Book in a coffee date
Connection is a great source of inspiration, meet up with a friend or schedule a coffee date with someone you admire.
Let someone else inspire you
Head to your local gallery or go to a gig, see what other creatives are up to and appreciate what they have achieved. Support the team!
