Take a deep breath…and let it go.

We all like to think of crafting as a way to relax, to find inner stillness. However, sometimes our brains don’t act the way we want them to; sometimes, we get Crafter’s Block, and suddenly our favorite hobby becomes stressful.

One strategy to address Crafter’s Block is to find stillness somewhere else. Here are some suggestions:

  • Take a nap
  • Pray or meditate
  • Float in the pool
  • Wash the dishes
  • Do yoga or breathing exercises
  • Visit the library
  • Take a short, leisurely walk in the park
  • Play quiet music in your headphones and clean out the car
  • Sit by a lake or a pond

Find some way to be still. When our brains are running a mile a minute, it’s hard to switch into a creative mode. When we stop and breathe for a bit, we can soften into a better space for crafting.
