What do you do when you aren’t feeling brilliant? When technology isn’t cooperating, the ideas aren’t flowing, and things just aren’t working?
Sometimes that totally *blocked* feeling is a sign that we need to step away…
Put. down. the. mouse. and. back. away. from. the. computer.
It’s okay to give yourself a break. If you’re feeling that way today, here’s permission to go do something FUN for a few minutes.
Since you’ve presumably got work to get done, don’t get lost for hours, but a short break to help you remember to breathe is good. Then come back and tackle your to do list with renewed energy and creativity.
Oh, and after you take your break, then focus and get whatever you’ve got to get done completed. If you need a kick in the pants go read this post by Chris Brogan about the myth of the perfect writing environment (it applies to other tasks, too… it’s really about excuses…)
If you give yourself a little break I’d love to hear what you do to recharge or relax. Please share in the comments, maybe your relaxation method is just what another reader needs!
