No matter what industry you work in, getting into a rut from time to time is inevitable. This can be especially true for entrepreneurs, small business owners and anyone in the creative field. No matter what your job entails — each one comes with its own set of creative struggles.
Thankfully, if you do find yourself in a creative rut there are SO many ways to pull yourself out and refocus your energy into producing something amazing. The following are all the things we turn to whenever we feel particularly stuck.
Clear The Clutter
A cluttered space = a cluttered mind. Your creative ability is directly impacted by the state of your work space. When it comes to your desk, think less is more. Invest in shelves, filing cabinets and other tools to keep your space organized and clean. Take 5 minutes each evening to simply clear your desk of any loose papers, drinking glasses, or whatever else may have built up from earlier that day.
Write It Out
Sometimes the best cure to a motivational block is to just write. When you don’t know what to talk about or share, take out a blank notebook and just start jotting down whatever thought that comes to your mind. They don’t have to be fully formed topics or even coherent sentences. The key is to start somewhere, and you may be surprised at what freely flows from your mind.
Brainstorm With Others
Sometimes you just need to be in the room with other creative people to get those juices flowing. When you’re charged with coming up with everything on your own it can be really really hard to stay inspired! That’s why meeting with other people is so crucial, whether it be through virtual conversations or in person. Make time to show up for other people to help them, and don’t be afraid to ask them to do the same for you!
Try Something New
Shake things up! Creativity is fueled by new experiences, so don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone. Put on a new outfit, go to that new concert or play, order something different on the menu, try a new workout, or listen to new music. Inspiration is everywhere, you just need to open your mind a little to see it.
Be Fully Present
If you’re in a constant battle with anxiety, it can be devastating to your creativity. If you’re constantly worrying about the future, how can you expect yourself to gain any creative perspective from what you’re experiencing right now? Be here. Even if it’s just for a few minutes a day, train your mind to focus on whatever your current stimulation is instead of thinking about what you need to do later.
