Creative block is a thing that comes to all of us. We all know the feeling of getting hung up on the details, everything coming to a grinding halt and maybe even struggling to get started on that special project. You’re on a schedule, you’re on a deadline, the work needs to get done. What can you do? Here are Atlas’ tips for beating creative block.
Kick it old school. Use a pen and paper! Quickly jot down whatever comes into your head and come back to it later.
Take a breather. Step away from the screen! Take a walk or just some ‘you’ time to recharge your creative batteries.
Expand your mind. Try something new, cook something delicious, read a book, listen to some music or podcasts and get those creative juices flowing.
Go against the flow. Do the opposite to what you or others would usually do, you might be surprised.
Share your thoughts. Let it out. Have a conversation with a real live person. Who knows, their thoughts might give you that spark of inspiration.
Catch some Z’s. Getting a good nights sleep can not only recharge your body but also your minds ability and therefore your creativity!
