Everyone has days where they think “what should I do now?”
A feeling of chaos where you are clueless.
Well yes, of course, we’ve all been there.
Merriam Webster’s dictionary describes this feeling as “brain fog”. In layman’s terms, it is called a mental block. These are barriers standing in the way of our creativity, motivation, and productivity.
But despite all of this how do you remain perseverant?
Here are 6 simple steps that can help you with this
What to begin with?
Start with the simpler decisions. Choose which topic you need to first focus on.
This will help you to gain the initial momentum and interest to indulge in your work.
Just like “Little drops of water make a mighty ocean” you will be able to pull off your work by making the right start!
Find a placid place
Peace brings with it so many positive emotions that it is worth aiming for in all circumstances. Hence, you need to sit in a peaceful environment and stay calm while dealing with your mental block.
Pick a place surrounded by greenery, where you can stay away from all the distractions and completely concentrate on your work.
The 4-R strategy
- Research- Have quick research about your task. The more you know about it, the better is your flow of thoughts.
- Refer– Refer to others’ opinions and analyse their point of view. This will help you to look into all perspectives and make a better decision.
- Resourceful– You need to have enough resources that can help you with your work. Make sure you look into every single aspect of your task.
- Recreation – Take short breaks whenever required, ease upon your mental block in the best ways like listening to music/podcasts or watching videos related to your task, which might help you to make a breakthrough.
Transcribe and organize your thoughts
When you are stuck with your thoughts and not able to come to a decision, write them down.
Now that you have all your thoughts written down try finding leads that can help you with your work.
Filter your thoughts and organize them according to your needs.
This will help you to relax and conclude with the right decision.
Know the drill
You can be self-confident but not overconfident. Avoid overdoing yourself. Set an achievable goal and give it enough time. Remember “good things take time” but also keep your limitations in mind and give your best to succeed.
Ignore all the negative feelings and stay positive but also be well prepared to face the consequences. A bold attitude and readiness to face anything will help you to avoid mental blocks.
