Unique Ways to Unclog Writer’s Block

We’ve all been there. We might have ten different ideas bouncing around in our brain, but when we sit down to put them into a story, things don’t exactly flow to our fingers. So, what do we do about this when ‘I’ll do it later’ isn’t an option? In my research to find out ways to improve the flow of creativity, I stumbled upon some fun and unique activities.

  1. Do the Hulu Hoop

In Eastern Culture, creativity in a person’s body is located two inches below the belly button in what is called the Sacral Chakra. This area is believed to house creativity, energy, joy, and passion. So, what happens when this area does not have proper flow? Creative stagnation. The theory behind hula hooping is that the circular movement helps open the Sacral Chakra. If you don’t have a hula hoop readily available, dance is another form of exercise that helps get the creative juices flowing.

    Strike a Pose

In my search, I stumbled upon a few yoga poses. The one I found most helpful is called the Cross-Crawl. You start by getting on the floor on all fours. Then, lift your left leg and right arm. Hold the pose for ten seconds before alternating with your right leg and left arm. The theory behind this movement is to help balance both the left and right sides of the brain. This pose is also said to help with coordination.

  1. Take a Math Test

Although the theory of a person having a dominate left brain vs. dominate right brain has been disputed, I believe it’s worth the time to find out ways to exercise both hemispheres of the brain for creative benefits. One way I discovered, purely by accident, was sitting home helping my son multiply mixed fractions. I discovered the next day my thoughts made more sense and flowed with less pausing in between ideas.

So, there you have it. If you care to share any of your techniques, I’d love to hear them. Happy writing and happy reading.
