6 Tips to Get Unstuck
Running a business can suck all of the creativity out of you. You may feel overwhelmed by small tasks, big tasks, or just the weight of trying to support a business on your own. When you feel stuck, your business suffers.
Getting yourself unstuck is the priority! To keep those creative juices flowing, you’ll need to make sure you spend a little time on yourself every now and again. Here are some tried and true steps to get yourself unstuck–let us know if they work for you!
Put the Task Down
When a task or project starts to get on your nerves or you feel stuck, start by putting the task down for at least a moment. You may just need a brief break! Take a few calming breaths, and if you feel ready you can start up again. If you don’t feel ready to pick up the task again, move on to the next task and come back to that one later.
Move Your Body
Moving your body will help stimulate your brain and get those creative juices flowing again. Turn on some music and have a little dance party, go for a walk, complete a quick household chore–just about anything counts as moving your body as long as your out of your chair!
Change Your Environment
Often times when we’ve been working all day, our environment starts to feel stale. Change your environment by running an errand, working in a different room, or going outside for some rejuvenating sunshine! New surroundings are likely to spark new thoughts. And they often make for good Instagram pictures 😉
Drink and Eat
Hanger (hunger induced anger) is real! If you’re hungry or thirsty, your mood is definitely being affected. Your work is going to suffer if you’re in a bad mood, so find some food and chug some water and come back to that project when your body is satisfied.
Take a Break
If it’s at all possible, take a break from all of it. That’s right! We said all of it! We understand that as an entrepreneur it can be difficult to take time away from your company and your clients, but it’s absolutely necessary at times. You want to be your best self for your employees and your clients and this is a sure way to be sure you’re in tip top shape.
Ask for Help
Finally, reach out for help. Maybe another member of your team or someone outside your business can help you come up with a solution to the task at hand! Relying on other people is perfectly normal and should be encouraged.
