Don’t Be A Right-Brain Slave Driver

Give it a rest so the creative juices can flow at maximum capacity.

Do you ever get that feeling that you just can’t anymore? No more thinking. You are done for the day!

But you have that lengthy article to write and you haven’t even started on your daily word count for your novel so you can’t stop now.

What are you to do when your mind is mush?

Give your right grey matter a change of scenery and use the other side for a bit.

Do something physical. Do the dishes, take a walk, turn on some music and dance, go get the mail.

Then come back to that right-brain activity.

This has worked wonders for me, I’m able to get more done by switching activities and not be so driven to have to finish something when I mentally just can’t.

The next time you are stuck try it and see how it works for you.

Sometimes I write, sometimes I edit what I write, but mostly I daydream, and fantasize about writing.⁣⁣⁣⁣ *My posts may contain affiliate links*
