Your idea block is back at it again. You can’t come up with a new dance routine, painting or poem. But it isn’t the end of the world! Recharge your creativity with these simple steps, and get creating again!

  1. Take a break ? If you feel like your creative batteries are running on empty, don’t push yourself to the breaking point. Step back and take a moment to do something else. You can return to what your working on later. Even if it is only five minute, give yourself time to refresh.
  2. Move around ? Often when we are doing something creative we are stuck in the same place for long periods of time. Go do that same thing somewhere else. The change of scenery could do wonders. Write on paper instead of at your computer. Draw outside instead of at your desk. Dance outside of the studio. It is easy to get lost in the monotony of your workspace. Changing it up once and the while can help alleviate that.
  3. Try something new ? Switch up your style for a little bit. This doesn?t mean turn around what you do completely, but trying something new can help change the way you see your creative process and help with the creative block you’re experiencing.
  4. Prompts ? Prompts are your friend! There are prompts for pretty much every art form. Find some and try them out. Don’t burn yourself out working on them though! The point of prompts is to give you some outside inspiration when you feel like you’re burned out.
