If you are anything like me, you tend to keep going and going to get things done. You put yourself under extreme pressure to make everything perfect. You are so hard on yourself and so when that creative block comes, and trust me it happens to everyone, you are so frustrated! Your head is foggy, you feel like it can’t fit anymore information in and it’s so damn crammed, you can’t get information out either! You can feel your body warming up, you are a bit hot under the collar. In fact you are starting to snap at the kids, at your mum on the phone, at your friend who is only trying to help, at the dog who keeps wanting love from you but can’t it see you are trying to make a creative decision here!!! Would everyone just please go away!
This my friend is so normal for high achievers. But guess what? You need to take the break! That one you have been putting off because you don’t have time. You are not getting anywhere! You need to recharge, regroup, declutter the mind. You cannot make the right decisions when you are in a frenzy!
So if you are in the paint shop or the tile shop trying to make a selection, or you are choosing curtains, or working out furniture layouts….whatever it is and you are feeling like you are going in circles and you have that massive block….Go take the damn break!!!
Be in control. This is supposed to be fun. Don’t let it take your creativity away from you and have you making hasty decisions because you are done. Breathe lovely. This is going to be amazing if you take your time. Ask for help if you need it, but please don’t make a decision when you are shitty! A shitty decision makes for a shitty space.
