Feeling stagnant? Stuck in a rut? Experiencing writer’s block? Waiting for the last minute?
Try getting out in nature. While you are there, focus on the feelings of peacefulness, content, bliss, and wonder that spontaneously arise in you.
And if these feelings don’t arise, get out in nature more.
If you do, chances are you’ll find yourself more relaxed, energized, and creative.
Evidence? I wrote this and the next three posts this morning – after hiking all day yesterday.
The trick is to immerse yourself in nature. If you go solely for the purpose of stimulating creativity and spend the entire time stuck in your head, you’ll probably be frustrated.
If you are able to go and relax and appreciate nature, chances are you’ll find yourself able to look at things from a new perspective, with new possibilities, when you return home and your mind naturally shifts back to the problems you are working on.
