As a business owner in the beauty industry, you must constantly think about solutions. Many of these require a creative edge. Often, a shift in perspective and a rewiring of the situation. When you’re tired or have a lot going on, it can be difficult to zone in on this ability. Creativity shows itself in many different forms, and as entrepreneurs, too, we understand the varying level of pressure.
Why do we get creative blocks? Where does a creative slump come from? Stress, mental overload, trauma, relationship issues, and anxiety could be underlying reasons.
You can avoid regular creative blocks by making sure you’re balancing your work commitments with time for yourself. This helps you to maximize your creative output. However, when you need it, WWE has a few tips to help you overcome creative blocks in your beauty business.
Become Aware of Your Creative Block
Experts describe a creative block as a barrier to accessing one’s creativity. It’s a mental block. When this happens, you struggle to unleash your usual creativity in thoughts, ideas, and more. Going through this patch can be highly frustrating as you build your beauty business.
When you’re trying to put marketing campaigns, product ideas, content, and business plans into motion, those creative juices are needed in full force.
Sometimes it helps to synergize with your team, but a lot of the time, your beauty business requires your unique stamp. If you need a little input with your creative decisions, there are many different resources to turn to.
The first step is to realize that you’re having a creative block (it’s a moment and not your life) and that it will pass. Remember that it is something that many creative professionals go through, and you’re not alone.
Take a Step Back
Once you’ve become aware of your creative block, take a moment to breathe. This is where you need to take a step back from what you’ve been busy with and do something different.
Are you craving a coffee date with a cheerful friend? Or a walk in nature? This is the time to jump in.
We know it’s easy to feel guilty for taking time off when you have a business. It might feel “unnecessary” or stressful to do something unrelated to work, but research has shown the benefits of switching off and taking short breaks between deadlines.
Ensure that the time you set aside to step back is entirely unrelated to the creative project ahead of you. Force yourself to block out any thoughts about your creative block, and let your mind “be.”
Revisit the situation
It doesn’t have to be an outing to a tropical beach. Although, if you can, we always encourage it!
Driving to the shops or even sitting at a coffee shop and just watching people go by is all you need to get a bit of headspace. Open a book, watch a funny video on YouTube, or take ten minutes to meditate outside.
Once you’ve taken the time to do something different, you can revisit the situation. This is where you get back to your work and try again.
Make sure that your workspace is clean and fresh. Put away any clutter, and set out a cup of coffee or tea to one side to have the necessary support when needed.
Unleash Your Creativity
Now that you have had a bit of rest, you should feel more refreshed. So as you sit back in your chair at your desk, see this as a new start. Forget about your struggles with the work previously, and begin again.
This is your moment to tackle your project with fresh eyes. Once you progress, feel free to chat about your creative ideas with your partners and team members.
