Change your routine

Time can be the spark. Set your alarm clock for 30 minutes or an hour earlier and embrace that extra hour. Use that time to meditate, pray, plan your day ahead, exercise or enjoy the sunrise.


Change your environment

If you live in the city, get out into the countryside and enjoy that fresh country air. Walk the hills or the valleys and experience your new surroundings. Go to the beach and walk in the sand, experienced the sea at different times of the year and draw on those experiences.


Change your horizon

Carry out an audit on your life and the goals and dreams you had and still have. Create a vision board of how you want your life to be and place it somewhere you can easily view regularly.


Change your vision

Don't be the frog in the well and only see a little piece of the world, change your point of view. Use the early mornings to get out and see your local area at different times of the day, and see how a familiar street can seem alien at an unusual time of the day.

Change your boundaries

Don't settle for what you have at the moment. Move out of your comfort zone and try some new experiences. Learn a foreign language. Learn a computer language. Join a club. Learn a musical instrument. Try and do something that places a manageable stress on you and pushes you into a new sphere of influence.


"Out of the mountain of despair; a stone of hope". - Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Change your lifestyle

Look at how you are managing your time and try to discover new ways to optimise the use of your time. Think about exercising or meditating to regain your focus and inspiration.


Change your medium

If you are used to working on your computer, try and use more traditional mediums such as paint on canvas, pen and paper or pencil and paper. Going back to more tactile media could ignite the flames of inspiration and you may discover a new creativity.


Change the pace

Take some time out of your day to breathe. Allocate yourself some time for yourself. A time for mindfulness and peacefulness. Be still and reflection your day so far and think about what is still to come.

Change your focus

Change how you see the problem or the task at hand. You may have to look at the bigger picture to gain clarity, but other times it may be more beneficial for you to look at the details and work on the smaller things first and put it all together like a jigsaw puzzle, but a change in focus can make the image clearer.


Change your day

Take a break in your week and forget about work, or the task at hand, if time allows. Switch off the phone and spend some quality time for you or with friends and family, but ensure you have the phone off, so as not to be disturbed. This is the time for you to focus on you.
