If you’re stuck in a creative rut or just want to clear your head make sure to go for a wander. If your head is filled with thoughts then you’re thinking about thinking. No fresh ideas can ever manifest in this state. During my travels I’ve been fortunate to meet people from all walks of life so the key is to give your brain time to process all the information you’ve been feeding it. You never know when a great idea for a project or an article might strike.
Look Up London
Get lost around your city. I can guarantee there are areas of it you’ve never been to that are full of surprises. Pretend you’re a tourist and look at everyday landmarks with a fresh pair of eyes. Is there something in them you’ve never noticed before? Even though I spent 3 years in London I find new and interesting places every time I return.
Try and go for a wander at different times of the day. Early morning when the sun is rising a city can be very eerie and silent. Later during the day as the sun is setting it can take on a wonderful orange glow and fill you with energy and pride that you get to live in such a wonderful and diverse place.
Moments Like These
There are those rare times when you get to walk through areas you know like the back of your hand but spot something new for the first time. It’s handy to have a camera with you as those moments are fleeting but can remind you just how random this concrete organism can be.
You shouldn’t feel bad if there’s an exhibition or a pop up shop you didn’t get to see. Take that feeling of disappointment and remember it next time you’re feeling lazy and think ‘Meh, it’ll be there next week’. Life can change very fast so appreciate the little things, you never know where they may lead.
