5 ways to remove emotional or mental barriers
We've all been there, staring at a blank screen, endlessly trashing erasers, pulling hair, scrolling photos on Facebook, rearranging music libraries, and even cleaning our computers.
We do our best to pass the time and avoid admitting the painfully obvious: we hit a block.
We are the cultivators and the only source of fuel for the blockages we experience. Blockages are often an indication that we have shifted our focus away from what we want and have placed it firmly on what we don't want.
This is nice because it means we decide how big our blocks are and for how long. Sometimes our locks are tougher than usual and refuse to go away.
The following five tips for overcoming mental blocks are designed to help clear those mental cobwebs, allowing you to get back into the creative flow where you belong.
Take a shower
Blockages of any kind are the result of one thing: not being grounded in the present.
Whether we live anxiously in an anticipated future or are stuck in the habitual past, we become disconnected from the inspiration and creativity that exist when we are fully present.
Taking a shower is a simple and effective way to focus your attention on the present moment. In addition, taking a bath allows us to relax, which allows us to develop more ideas and creative solutions to our problems.
It also has positive effects on our health and outlook on life.
Do cardio or exercise
Sometimes an effective way to be creative is to engage in any high-intensity activity or exercise.
Whether it's a casual walk in the park or a run in the mountains, anything that takes you to a different environment, preferably fresh air and nature, usually works.
Any activity that makes you present and rooted in the now is excellent for awakening your creativity and overcoming blockages. You can try trail running, going to the gym, doing yoga, pilates, or dancing.
In addition to the obvious physical benefits and endorphins released, a high-quality, high-intensity workout is a great way to shift your focus to the present. It's hard to hold on to the block when your heart is pounding and your lungs are out of breath.
Remember that it is always important not to overdo this type of routine, everything in moderation.
Change the channel
Blockages arise when we focus on what we don't want instead of what we do want. When we divert our attention from our initial goal and allow it to wander to places that don't make sense, we end up at a dead end.
The next thing we know, we have a big furry mental block sitting on our desk.
A great trick to eliminate said furry bug is to change the channel or the information to which we are attentive. One way to do this is to do something unrelated to the problem you are working on.
For example, you could be writing an article for a magazine and then get hijacked by the most egregious mental block.
Normally, you would throw your hands in the air, hit the stapler, and start to see how many times you can spin around in the chair at once.
Now, take a deep, easy breath before you open the TED Talks YouTube page and select the first video that catches your eye, 20 minutes later, the new you is sitting totally inspired.
Change the environment
This is a great trick for disarming mental blocks that just won't go away.
Our brains are pattern-making machines, and that's their job. They create patterns based on our thoughts, words, and actions.
Often our blocks are the result of getting caught up in an unwanted thought pattern. It becomes a routine that eventually becomes an unwanted routine.
A great way to “reset” an unwanted routine is to change the environment we are so used to.
This applies to our outer and inner worlds. It can be as simple as going on vacation to a place you've never been or taking a course you'd never go to.
Anything that interrupts the same old routine can be incredibly effective in helping us broaden our perspective. Ultimately, this will help us see new solutions to old problems.
If someone asks, just say you're doing it to produce better work.
Do you still feel stuck? ask for help
If you find you're still stuck after doing some of the suggestions above, it might be time to ask someone else for help.
Nobody is really successful alone. By asking for help, you not only benefit from another person's objective perspective, but you can also give the other person an opportunity to help solve a problem.
For those who like to DIY, this can be difficult at first. However, the more you do it, the easier it gets. The benefits that result from collaboration or consultation can be truly amazing.
Be sure to ask someone you trust, preferably someone who has faced a similar situation before. There is a reason why so many opinions are free in this world.
