Jeffery Davis of trackingwonder.com suggests that after a period of intense focus on a task, its helpful to change your rhythm by doing something different; interject something pleasurable and off task. He recommends taking a 5 to 20 minute relaxing, fun-filled break to clear your mind.
Consider going for a walk, listening to music, dancing, jumping rope, gardening, painting, drawing, reading something you love – do whatever delights you and takes you away – mind, body and emotion – from the situation you’ve been focusing on.
The next time you feel stuck, frustrated and devoid of good ideas intentionally take a break, do something you really enjoy, then go back to your task with your juices flowing, once again. Benefit from your brain’s ability to be its most creative when it’s relaxed and bathed in pleasure.
