I like to pursue new ideas, when the day and my mind are very fresh and malleable. Going from a restful sleep to awaking in the morning have been the times I've done some of my best work. In fact, those hours are my favorite times for doing yoga and exercise, as well. I find this liminal or transitional state as an area that is not fully set or settled. I've said what it's not but I can easily say what it is: fruitful.
In a liminal, early morning state, I am awake but still open to my dreams states. This odd time is conducive to creativity and productivity.
My exercise for this Creative Block Hack is easy. Set your alarm an hour earlier than usual or simply start pursuing your creative work an hour or so earlier than normal. See what you come up with, and if creative flows for you in that liminal state, the way it does for me.
