    • Change the scenery.

      Your office may be the cause of your creative block. After sitting in the same chair day after day, it can certainly take its toll on your ability to produce. Head to a coffee shop, park, or bookstore for a rush of energy that'll inspire you to create!

      • Consider going to a mom and pop coffee shop rather than a franchise. Coffee houses like Starbucks and Panera Bread can be quite noisy and distracting.

      • Take a walk in a forest or somewhere beautiful outdoors. The secret to abolishing your creative block is to get out into the great outdoors and get your adrenaline pumping.

      • Release your inhibitions.

        Many times, the fear of failure or creating something that isn't top notch is the only barrier between you and success. Let your insecurities fall by the wayside and create a masterpiece that is divine in your eyes.


        If you obstruct your creative process by being too rigid or expecting too much too soon, you'll send your creative juices into hideout indefinitely. Release the pressure and allow your mind to freely express itself.

        Paint an abstract painting using colors you generally never use. Choose a topic that's close to your heart and just write the words that come to your mind without editing. Or, doodle in your notepad until an image is just right for your design.

        • Seek inspiration.

          Every creative professional has an industry hero. For a copywriter, it may be Gary Halbert. A stationary designer may enjoy the work of Nicole Balch. Browse through your hero's portfolio and become inspired to create your own work.

          • Stay Calm.

            Stress can be detrimental to your creativity.

            Avoid situations where you feel overly stressed or uptight. If you're like most people, you'll likely do most of your creative thinking in a calm environment. Too much stress can hinder your creative mind, so remember to take breaks when needed.

            Some creative professionals swear by meditation. Meditation quiets your mind from excessive unproductive thinking and allows it to be open to new ideas.
