Welcome to Part 3 of my mini post series about how to deal with feeling blocked, unmotivated, uninspired or just plain stuck in a rut. Today's focus is on GET MOVING
As Olivia Newton John said: “Let’s get Physical”
In my last post we talked about using play-time. In this post we are going to talk a bit about getting out, stretching and exercising to shake things up!
Have you ever noticed when you feel a creativity block, you might also feel physically blocked too? Your body feels a bit stiffer, you may be slouching, and even your breathing may be more shallow than normal.
Just like physical activity is good for the body it is also a powerful stimulator for the brain too.
The importance of physical exercise for the healthy brain is discussed on Positscience.com:
According to a study done by the Department of Exercise Science at the University of Georgia, even briefly exercising for 20 minutes facilitates information processing and memory function.
Remember a body in motion tends to stay in motion, and this same rule applies to your mind.
So take action right now and try out one of the actions mentioned in this post, and soon you will find with a flexible body comes a flexible brain too.
Feel free to share in the comments section what physical activities have really helped you break out of a mental rut.
In the fourth and final part of this Blog series - We will talk about reaching out and sharing with others can help you break out of a mental block.
