Sit straight and tall as if a Catholic nun has just rapped your back with a ruler.
As you inhale again, arch your back and allow your ribcage to expand as fully as possible.
By now your focus is returning slowly. Most of “writer’s block” is tension-based; rhythmic breathing and concentrating on something besides the page for just a few minutes often does the trick. Need more? Continue as listed below:
Stretch your arms open and wide as you inhale deeply. Watch for passersby who ignore your open and ever-nearing arms—no lawsuits, right?
Take a short, brisk walk; the increased blood flow and new environs will invigorate you. Keep the distance short enough to avoid wasting time away from the page and fighting even more fatigue.
AAAAHHH!!! I don’t know about you, but I feel better! Honestly speaking, I wrote this posting as I did everything on this list. Let me know if this “writing exercise” helps you, too!
