Try these
5 tips to keep
you and your
brain in
shape for
creativity...
...and avoid
the dreaded
burnout!
1Step away from
your desk.
Your desk
is a hive of
productivity but
it can also steal
your creative
energy.
Take time
out to do
something
else.
Forget
about work
& be inspired
by the world
around you.
2Understand when your
productive hours are.
Successful
people
understand
when they
work best.
When is
your creative
brain at its
freshest?
Plan your
workday around
those times to
sidestep creative
burnout.
3Give yourself
enough time.
Inspiration
often strikes
when you’re
doing something
unrelated to
work.
Make time to
let your brain
breathe.
Mull an idea
over and let
inspiration
bubble to the
surface.
4Distract yourself.
Give your
subconscious
time to digest
new info.
Do something
that takes
100% of your
attention.
Exercise
also gives you
a great rush of
endorphins!
5Break your task down.
Feeling
overwhelmed
is a fast track
to burnout.
Break a big
task into small
chunks to
make it more
manageable.
Ease into
the right
creative space
by starting
with the
easier stuff.
Too burnt out and
uninspired to write
compelling
copy?
