Are you a creative person? Do you work with paints, photos, or a pen? Some people find joy and inspiration in art, and you love that you can provide that.
Even though you love being creative, suffering through creative blocks can be difficult. While some experts say that experiencing a creative block is normal, how do you deal with it?
Acknowledging that you are experiencing a creative block is one of the first steps to actually dealing with it. From idea generation to even putting the idea on paper, a person suffering from a creative block will find it challenging to tap into their creativity.
Reliving your romance with your creative side should always take priority. You should engage in creative thinking activities that will keep your mind active, whether it is for work or play.
Dealing with a creative block is a serious concern. You have to work hard to keep the creative juices flowing. Here are...
In February 2019 my wife left me. She didn’t just leave me though. She told me she was no longer in love with me and there was no chance of us ever being together again. Every hope and dream I had for the future revolved around her and our relationship. The entirety of my self identity was built upon the foundation of our love, and in an instant it was replaced by an abyssal void. I was torn apart and rebuilt by pain so intense I couldn’t have believed it existed until it consumed me. It was then that I knew there was nothing left in this world for me, and the only thing I could do was kill myself.
While I knew it was time for me to leave this world my exit plan was no simple suicide. My ego couldn’t let go of my wife or the love I maintained for her, so if I couldn’t have her in this reality I was going to build another one where I could. I planned to transcend human...
Are you suffering from a miserable marriage, or do you often ask yourself, “Should I stay in my relationship?” Being with another person is not going to be great all the time. There are pros and cons to each relationship that we should all consider before committing to a person. If we don’t think things through thoroughly, we may find ourselves in a situation where it’s too good to leave and too bad to stay.
It’s not just in relationships that we encounter this problem with commitment. There are times when we just do our work for the sake of finishing our tasks. How often have we done something quickly so that we can get it over with? It no longer matters to us whether the job was done to the best of our abilities or not. We want it off our to-do list, so we haphazardly finish it.
Another typical example is our commitment to dieting and working out. It often starts at the beginning of the year as a New Year’s resolution. But after...
Whether you are running your own business or pushing to move your career forward, the stress can be difficult to deal with on top of everything else at home and in your personal life. While it is normal to find yourself in various stressful situations, sometimes it can get to you.
Between managing the day to day obligations you have at home and bearing the responsibility of making your career successful, it’s no surprise that you’re overwhelmed. There is just so much that depends on you.
Everyone and everything seems to demand your time and attention. You likely wear several hats. This constant pull can drain your energy. Ultimately, this anxiety can leave a significant impact on your overall well being, particularly your emotional, mental, and physical health, as well as the quality of life that you live.
When you have too much on your plate, and things become overwhelming, some things may start to slip, and your hard...
Have you heard of spiritual colors? While spirituality is often associated with everything white and light, there are so many other colors that speak of healing and spirituality just waiting to be discovered.
When was the last time you took out some crayons or pencils and just sat there and colored? Perhaps you can no longer remember because it was back when you were in elementary school.
Perhaps you had different characters printed on the page, and you had a whole set of crayons beside you. Your eagerness to fill the page with color was just there. And when you started, you felt calm and content.
It was not a perfect sheet after, but it was not what you were truly after. Rather, it is about the process. It was the act of using the crayons and making beautiful things about it that made the activity worthwhile.
If you felt like this when you were a kid, can you imagine transforming those crayons into healing colors? You might just have found an effective...
The importance of discipline in life could not be any more emphasized. It is one of the most useful skills that a person can possess. Self-discipline is an essential aspect of life. Although many people recognize the importance of self-discipline, very few people really work hard for it.
Contrary to popular belief, self-discipline is not about being hard on yourself. It is also not about limiting yourself to what you can and cannot do. A restrictive lifestyle does not define self-discipline.
Instead, it is about using common sense. It is about teaching yourself the right set of priorities. The practice of self-discipline is about thinking before acting.
Discipline is the key to success. With self-discipline, you can achieve your goals because it is the driving force that will push you to pursue your dreams and not stop until you have accomplished them.
If you are disciplined, you have the...
How intuitive are you? This may be a shocking question to receive, not because you think you are not an intuitive person. Instead, it may catch you by surprise because you never really give your intuitive talents any serious thought.
Intuition is your gut feeling. It is that old and wise part of yourself that connects you to the invisible spirits and energies all around you. Sometimes, if you’re lucky, your intuition will hint at what’s going to happen before it occurs.
Your intellect gives you the capacity to see things as they are. Your mind interprets the information you are getting and turns them into messages. Your intellect is in charge of your daily rational and irrational decisions.
Your intuition, on the other hand, describes what your senses feel. It is in charge of interpreting what the energies around you are trying to say. It highlights the message from these energies and turns them into...
Do you feel like you're always in fight or flight mode? Perhaps you quickly get anxious or angry when things don't go the way you thought they would. Getting out of this negative mindset requires you to let go of the need to always be in control. More than likely, your control issues have been less helpful for you than you initially thought.
If there is one thing that you should know about life is that nothing is predictable. Even when you do your best to improve your circumstances and prepare for the worst, things can always turn out differently. This fact of life is why it is best to let go of being in control of everything. You must accept that life comes with its own set of uncertainties. After all, whether you acknowledge it or not, your excessive need for control only gives you unproductive stress. Perhaps it has even pushed you towards procrastination of your responsibilities.
When you have a fear of losing control, you...
Do you know what triggers your employees' innate motivations? While their pay is a strong motivator, studies show that what really pushes employees to do their best is the emotion behind their job and if they feel appreciated. Motivation theories say that in order to keep their employees motivated, in addition to the things mentioned above, managers also need to learn how to reach the individual.
There are several types of motivation strategies, but only a few will be effective for your team. It is your responsibility as a leader to figure out what will work the best. Knowing how to motivate every member of your team can be overwhelming, not to mention frustrating, and may feel like a waste of time, but it will be worth the effort if you can do it. If you can create a culture of inspiration and motivation within your workplace, your employees will enthusiastically come to work day after day. Here are eight tips to get you started:
Do you feel stressed because you have too much to do? Have you ever considered that perhaps it isn’t that you don’t have enough time, but perhaps you have misplaced feelings of anxiety? Or possibly, and this may be a hard pill to swallow, you may have poor time management?
Like most people, you may feel like you don’t have enough time on your hands. However, experts say that your feelings, while valid, don’t reflect reality. Sometimes, the feeling is caused by several different factors that do not include time at all.
So why does it feel like you always need more time?
Did you get so excited to accomplish a lot in your day that you wrote down too many things to do on your list? While it may seem like a good idea to have a loaded list as it might encourage you to work harder, it could often cause those feelings of anxiety.
