If you're a creative, chances are (at some point) you've hit that dreaded rut where you feel a lull in your own artistic ideas. Our founder shares her top 8 tips on how she gets back into the groove when feeling "stuck."
SHORT TERM TACTICS
Movement. Go for a run or walk outside.
Take 15 minutes to read a book or magazine.
Step away from the task at hand & change your environment & then sit back down with a fresh pair of eyes.
Make yourself a healthy snack.
LONG TERM TACTICS
Rise & practice gratitude. Science shows that both creativity & idea generation rise when starting your day with an optimistic mindset.
Implement the 1⁄3 rule. For every hour you spend consuming content, spend three hours producing & sharing your own.
Surround yourself with creative minds. You’re the average of the five people you spend the most time with.
Get 7 hours of sleep EVERY night. Lack of sleep can be detrimental to the brain generating & remembering new ideas.
