Added by RPass08 on May 26, 2014

Take a Break

Sometimes when you are focusing to hard on something you can easily become tired and mentally shut down. Try taking a short break to recharge the batteries.


Use a Different Writing Tool

Sometimes it just takes a change of pace to get inspired. Try shutting down your computer and busting out the old pad and pencil to break a writers block.


Make a Drawing

Sometimes we have a general idea of where we want to take a piece, but we can't articulate the words to get it started. Try creating a simple drawing of your idea and use it to create that next paragraph and get into a rhythm.


Get Some Exercise

Studies have shown that after 15 minutes of not thinking your thoughts will start to become really clear. When you are exercising you are able to empty your mind and let clear thoughts prevail.



Similar to exercising the goal here is to stop thinking. Just relax, close your eyes, and let your mind wander. It is important to not watch TV or listen to your iPod when meditating you do not want to have any outside distractions. After about 15 minutes you will start thinking clearly.
