Overcome Lack Of Inspiration More Effectively
I've been working incredibly long hours lately and my blog has taken the back seat for a while. Between the new shop and trying to keep up with making themes to sell my free time has gone considerably down. Three nights ago I broke my bed time record. I went to bed at six in the am and woke up at 8:00am that same morning, can you believe it? - After 2 hours of sleep I just couldn't get myself to figure something to blog about. Don't get me wrong. I'm not complaining. This has been a wonderful, precious and indulging time but inspiration has not necessarily been an item on my list these days. After finally uploading everything up last night I realized how little things make me feel comfortable and inspired and I wanted to share them with you:

00 The Live Then Blog approach is the hardest to achieve yet the most efficient one. I find it hard sometimes to get myself out of the house. I tend to put my commitments first and I often realize there's no blogging without a life. Going out, speaking to people, reading, everything around us is a source of inspiration.

01 Use your your every day resources as a source of inspiration. Since I haven't gotten much downtime that little breaks that I've given myself have been filled with sticking myself in images, creative videos online and reading my client's posts.

02 Take time out to do something you love. Work with your hands and you will most definitely jump-start the creative vibe. Whether that's a delicious meal or something material for you or someone you love, spending time creating something will most likely get all your creative juices going.

The true secret in all this is to learn when to step away. Inspiration is not something you fight to get, it will come to you at the weirdest and some times inconvenient times if you let is flow.

  2. 2 hours of sleep?! No wonder you weren't feeling inspired! My trick is to blog in bulk, when I'm feeling creative, and then let the blog be during the week when I'm too hectic to make real time for inspiration!

  4. I think you hit it. I go and live. Or sometimes I just have to wait. My friend once told me your brain is still working on something even if you're not actively thinking about it. I like that advice. I enjoy your blog! Thanks for doing what you do.

  5. I often find that something as simple as getting fresh air and taking a walk can do wonders. Very well said: live, then blog. Indeed.
