It is normal to feel like you’re stuck in the flow of your creativity but sometimes your writer’s block ends up lasting much longer. It is easy to get ourselves in this position as producing music is filled with limitless options.
You need to keep in mind that you can’t completely avoid moments like these but instead learn how to deal with them. So what do you when you get sick of creating music? You find ways to loosen up.
Here are 5 things to do in the morning to cure writer’s block:
Take A Break
When you get tired of what you’re doing and still want to be productive, it makes sense to go do something else. It doesn’t matter how long you take, but just step away from the music studio and go get some perspective. Go do something completely unrelated to music because this will give you more inspiration.
Go for a walk right in the morning to get your juices flowing and this will create space in your mind for fresh new ideas.
Getting up Earlier
You need all the time you can get to work on your career, and getting a head start in the morning is not a bad idea. Just getting up a half hour earlier will help you get a head start on your creative flow.
Make a List Of Focal Points and Goals
One of the reasons you may be stuck in your music making is that you don’t really know what you are trying to achieve. So, make a list of focal points to orientate your work around. If you make a list, you know the specific context of your work and it will save time on all the debating of whether something works or not.
Listing out your goals is also a great way to know what you want to focus on.
Eat Breakfast and Exercise
Eating breakfast gives your body fuel and helps you think clearly and effectively during the rest of the day. It can kickstart your day and you can wind up being productive for hours to come.
Doing physical activity for atleast 15-20 minutes each day in the morning will also help clear your mind and give you energy when you need it the most.
One of the great things about making music is it’s collaborative nature. If you feel like your inspiration is dying out, don’t be afraid to add others into your music.
