There have been moments where I have been stuck for content for this blog. I don’t read that much so most of that content that I put onto this blog comes from me. So, inevitably, there have been occasions where I’ve been ripping my hair out trying to think about what I’m going to write about next.
The trouble is, when you get to that stage, you’ve created a block for yourself that is not easy to get out of. The best way, is to get on with something else that you need to do. When you do that and you are completely focused on what you are doing, you will find that you will get “flashes”, so to speak, of ideas that will literally burst into your mind like bolts of lightening.
There is no need to fear any lack creativity. It doesn’t mean you’ve run out of ideas and won’t be able to have any more! Lack of creativity is a result of putting to much pressure on oneself. The way to alleviate that is a change of activity or giving your attention to something else. Your subconscious will continue working on any questions or potential ideas that you had earlier and without you even realising it, you will get bursts of creativity that will take you by surprise.
If you ever feel yourself getting to that stage, relax, change your scenery, do something else that you know needs doing and immerse yourself in that.
Of course you can continue your blogging or creative task, but take a few minutes, and just relax yourself, do some minute meditations (one of the books I’m working on) go look at some flowers, trees, birds (the non human variety) 😛 cars, kick a football around, do some skipping or just get out of your seat and shake that bootaaay!
