10 Things To Do When You Hit a Creative Block

Because sometimes you just can’t even. 

  1. Switch up your playlist. If you don’t follow Anita Cheung on Spotify, start there.
  2. Dance. I know it’ll feel ridiculous, but turn up the music and move. If you’re in public this might not be the best solution…or maybe it will.
  3. Read something that has nothing to do with what you’re creating. I always have Harry Potter on hand.
  4. Watch this.
  5. Read through this.
  6. Clean up your physical space. Those dishes you said you were going to do later, go do them. Make your bed, do a load of laundry.
  7. Follow @brit_gill on Pinterest and feast your eyes.
  8. Listen to any of these.
  9. Go for a walk without your phone—smell flowers, look at the clouds, breathe fresh air, smile at strangers.
  10. Touch yo’ self.
