This week I have been hit with blogger’s block as my inspiration wained and ideas became scarce. Although this is a common occurrence for bloggers, artists, writers, you name it, the struggle to overcome this foggy area is real. Over the years I have gathered some tips and tricks to get myself back on track and motivated. Here are 5 of my favourites.
#1. Take time off: I cannot stress how important it is to have a change of scenery. When I see my laptop, it arises emotions of dread primarily because I use it to answer emails, do my school readings, and other not peculiarly enjoyable things. Spending some time outdoors rejuvenates me and I am ready to get back to work afterwards.
#2. Stay hydrated and nap: When necessary, yes you deserve a little break. Right after a good nap, you will experience a boost in your creativity. Meanwhile, drinking lots of water, limits burning out and exhaustion.
#3. Go out: Seeing a close friend has always been my go to solution. There is no better feeling than knowing that someone close to you has experienced the same emotions and you aren’t alone. Talking about your dilemma leaves more room on your mind for new ideas.
#4. Small accomplishments count: Making a quick to do list and forcing yourself to get some chores done will leave you feeling accomplished when you see yourself checking off those boxes. Set small, realistic goals and work your way up towards your ambitions.
#5. Change up your routine: My best advice would be to make some small scale changes here and there in your life. Personally, I like to change up my morning routine. This way there is always something new and exciting to look forward to (and not meticulous actions).
