When we’re constantly distracted or telling the brain what to focus on, we don’t provide it the space to stretch and play out different scenarios to see what “feels right.”
You don’t need to go on a two-week journey like I did (although it doesn’t hurt) -- even a short, quiet walk can offer up massive clarity and moments of inspiration.
So, next time you feel stuck, uncertain, or unmotivated, take a break. Get quiet. There is infinite wisdom inside of you that is bursting to come out. If you don’t purposefully make space for it, it’ll stay right where it is - which is not useful to you at all.
Do me a favor. Share this with your best pal who needs a reminder about how important it is to get away. Then comment below with your own experience of “getting away” and the clarity it provided!
