Hello and welcome to my Tuesday Tip number seven.
Today I want to talk to you about a simple way to help you get your creative juices flowing.
Do you feel like you’re stuck in a creative rut and not getting anywhere? Maybe you’ve been working on creating something, be it for your job, yourself or someone else, and you were in an amazing flow, but now you feel stuck and not really making any progress? My Tuesday Tip might be something for you then, so read on my friend, read on.
If you’re stuck in a creative rut try the following:
Be lazy for the day!
Yes, try taking the whole day to do “nothing”, rather than trying to make things happen and working nonstop.
There are many benefits to being lazy and idle.
One of the benefits is increasing your creativity and free thinking.
Numerous studies have shown that taking it easy and doing nothing can work wonders for your innovation and creativity, and a person’s inactivity might actually encourage new inventions and insight.
Most big or new ideas and solutions to our problems have been shown to come during free time, when our brain is able to get the breathing space to wander, reflect, philosophise and flow.
And remember, it’s important to embrace the lazy.
If you’re taking time out and having a lazy day, don’t feel bad or guilty about not making “better” use of your time. Remind yourself that laziness can actually help you on your creative venture.
Having a lazy day here and there is good for you. I will write more about the benefits of laziness, but for now, I would like to leave you with this Tuesday Tip.
Let me know how you get on!
