At the end of that post, I asked you to share your tips and tricks for battling creative blocks and burnout by tweeting, using the hashtag #BeatTheBlock.
Quite a few of you responded and here are a few of my favorites…
Walk away and do something else creative like listen to music, draw, paint, or workout.
Exercise! I do some of my best thinking either in the gym or on the trails. Definitely gets my mind moving.
I take a break and look at design inspiration that is non #elearning.
When we’re having an off day we find turning on our favorite tunes helps us #BeatTheBlock.

Change your view. Look at what you want to get out of the learning (from an end user’s perspective). Interview a couple end users, asking how they see the piece you’re struggling with. Sometimes when you can see the bridge from the other side, you can better figure out how to get across it.
I dismiss it from my mind & walk or bike in nature, then brainstorm & sketch loosely AWAY from the desk!

I try getting a different perspective – brainstorm with a colleague always helps!
