Welcome to Part 2 of my mini post series about how to deal with feeling blocked, stuck or in a rut.
In my last post I talked about using Inspiration to help you break you out of your blocked state. And in this post I am going to speak about Playing Games to stimulate your brain to help you come up with a fresh and fun way to approach to your problem or block.
PART 2: Play a Game to Clear Blocks
Do you remember playing as a kid – how you could quickly forget you just skinned your knees from a fall, because you were having so much fun playing with a friend? Well the same trick works when it comes to overcoming any kind of block. Playing a game, can not only help you forget the fact you were in a blocked state, but if you play the right games you can discover ideas or solutions that will help you get your forward momentum back.
Set aside at least 15 minutes to play a game by yourself or with others. This can break your mental loop and help you get your brain to shift gears and get energized again with stimulation.
Not all games are equal or beneficial. Some games, decks and apps are just good for entertainment and distraction but there are some games out there that do more – they stimulate and inspire.
Feel free to try these:
