I crave to create, to write and to express myriad things, as I write this article I see a blank white wall image on my brain--I want to move my fingers to write something, but how? If my brain stem cells cant move?
I long for inspiration brought by the warmth sun, sneaking from your window flowing inside your room, telling you you will have a fabulous day.
I read an article explaining how inspiration and/or flashes of genius are actually rooted in science. Because of this, we can create a system and life that allows ourselves to have better ideas more often.
The article stated everything you've read, tasted, viewed, experienced and learned over the years is stored in your brain as unrelated connections. A section of your brain called the superior anterior temporal gyrus (right side, just behind your ear) helps connect the dots and puts them together into a cohesive idea.
However, if you're stressed all the time or have created a crazy busy schedule with little to no margin your brain has a harder time looking for those dots because it is so focused on what you have going on. When your body can relax, your creativity can shine as your creativity is really your brain connecting the dots and presenting solutions.
I tried really to snap out of this " creative block" mode, I know this kind of "period" happens to some artist -- I ate some sweets and tried to make my brain function. The next thing I happened was me setting up some decor on my table and snapped a shot.if you want better ideas in 2016, set a resolution to regularly do something out of your norm. Read better books and read them more often. Go to museums. Take your daughter out for ice cream. Watch well-made films. Go to a comedy show. Go for a walk. Go for a swim. Learn something new!. Take up knitting.
You can do it alone or make it a date with your spouse, kids, friends. The trick is to get out of your usual routine and allow yourself to have fun and relax.
Making time to take care of yourself is better in the long run. I'm slowly learning to let go of the urge to stay busy and, instead, simply be.
