Best Rest Practices for Optimal Productivity & Creativity | Creativity Post | Building Momentum & Productive flow | Scoop.it
We know taking breaks optimizes work-and-create flow. But what are the best practices? And does your creativity benefit from a full nap or not?

 

We know taking breaks optimizes work-and-create flow. But what are the best practices and under what conditions? Some people advise mindful breaks. Others suggest full-blown hour-long naps. Much depends, according to the research, upon your circumstances and your desired ends.

 

An optimal work-and-create flow is an extended period of time in which your mind and body are performing at their best when engaged in high-thinking and high-imagining tasks and projects. You sustain focus, your body’s fire stays stoked, your attitude flourishes, your imagination hangs from the monkey bars.

 

But most of us know that pulling all-nighters and pumping our bodies with caffeine does not an optimal work-and-create flow make.

 

Here’s a quick review of relevant studies and my suggestions based on my own experiences and in working with first-rate authors, designers, and entrepreneurs....

 

[Ahhhhh, refreshing thinking on the value of rest ~ Jeff]

Be Water, My Friend

Be Water, My Friend | Building Momentum & Productive flow | Scoop.it

Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.

 

This is how I feel about the writing process - or any creative process, for that matter. Remember writing academic papers? I do. As an English major, I had to write a lot of them. I remember sitting down and forcing myself to write. To use Bruce Lee's analogy, I was trying to force open a rusted spigot, hoping to get the water flowing. I could usually make it happen, but it was tough.

 

How do we get our creativity to flow like water?
