Here’s How To Schedule A ‘Creativity Reset’
If you’re anything like us, then from time to time you know the value of resetting, taking a break, and reflecting on your progress thus far.
No matter if this is to do with your work, your family life at home, or perhaps just reviewing your fitness journey thus far.
Taking some time out to check on yourself can be a tremendous use of your time, and a healthy one at that.
Scheduling a ‘creativity reset,’ as it were, can function along the same lines. If you partake in hobbies, pump out content, or are trying to develop a particular skill, it can be hard to see our natural ideas dry up and to feel less inspired from time to time.
Unfortunately, this happens to even the best artists, directors, and writers out there. It may be that a creativity reset can help you start anew.
It can give you space to think, and potentially unlock your creative juices once more. With that in mind, let’s consider some of the following advice for achieving exactly that.
Go Back To The Drawing Board
It’s important to go back to the drawing board from time to time. Really break down the roots of your particular project.
If you’re running a marketing campaign but you’re not certain how to properly connect with your audience, consider taking a step back. Allowing their own interests, feedback, and presence speak to you.
Don’t be afraid to scrap plans that you had in motion, or iterate on ideas that seem to be worthwhile.
Furthermore, don’t feel as though starting again means starting at ‘zero,’ often. You’re richer for the experience and have lessons to apply.
Organize Your Tools
Just as a tired painter might look at their tools, renewing their canvas and cleaning their palette, it’s good to look at the tools you use and to clean them, make them functional, and start again.
These top 10 tips for how to declutter your Mac is a great place to start, allowing you to think logically again while using such a device.
For others, this may mean scrapping blog-posts in-progress, or in reconfiguring the files in our cloud drive.
Sometimes, you just have to start with a fresh mindset.
Disconnect & Focus
It’s very easy to read advice online (we’re aware of the irony here), and to feel as though because of all this ‘noise’ you cannot focus on your own intuition.
That’s why it’s good to disconnect from online life and allow your own thoughts to flow.
For some, this might mean taking a break from the desktop and heading to a cafe with a notebook to come up with ideas.

For others ,it might just mean taking a walk with the dog in the morning, with no headphones listening to podcasts or audiobooks, or any other distractions.
Disconnecting a little is often a healthy way forward.
With this advice, we hope you can schedule that creativity reset you’ve been looking for, in the best possible manner.
