When you are feeling stuck in your creative process often the best thing you can do is take a step outside of your typical creative space. Nature walks can allow us the time to recharge our batteries when overstimulated. On the other hand, a walk through a busy city street can be an inspiration all on its own. People watching can be a great way to find new inspirations.
Clear your mind of all distractions and allow yourself to destress. Once your mind is clear of stress you are more open to new ideas and can look at things from a whole new angle. Picture a serene place, somewhere you feel completely at peace, then recreate this space on paper in your own interpretation.
Allow your friends to hear about your ideas that you are stuck on. Often they can give great advice, or just help you to get your creative juices flowing. Sometimes just being able to laugh with friends or recharge over coffee can help open you up to endless possibilities.
If you are having trouble making a new piece of art, try a new recipe to get your creative juices flowing. No one wants to create on an empty stomach, it is a distraction all on its own. If you don’t have time to make a new dish, simply grab your favorite comfort food and dig in!
It is proven that when you write out a plan for what you want to get down you are much more likely to get what you want to accomplished. Being held accountable, even to your own lists, helps to keep you motivated and pushing through those creative blocks we all come into from time to time.
We all have a lot of unfinished projects begging for our attention. Giving them the attention they need and finishing them can get them off our minds to allow more space for new and exciting projects.
