4 Reads to Help You Get Out of a Creative Slump

Over the last 2 years or so, due to major stress, I’ve been really struggling creatively. Not necessarily coming up with ideas, but implementing them. Going from making and creating all the time to completing nada was a horrible feeling. Honestly that feeling probably helped pushed me away more from any small idea I came up with.

This may be something that is fairly common for everyone at different points in their lives.

Recently I took it upon myself to make some changes in my life that could possibly help with my problem.

  • I’ve created a very loose schedule for myself. If something really important comes up, OK I’ll have to craft another time
  • I’m starting with smaller projects to help me get back into the groove
  • I’m going to try and be kinder to myself and spend more time doing things I enjoy
  • I’m going to get back into using a sketchbook as often as possible

Those a few of the very basic steps I’ve taken and should help me out!

Below I’ve included a few links to some articles that cover some more in-depth ideas.

Please let me know what you’ve done if you’ve ever felt this way!
