Take a Break

What is your concentration span? There’s a limit.

Studio work is hard on the brain as it requires constant alertness, creative thinking and attention to detail.

Our ability to concentrate depends on a lot of things

  • commitment
  • enthusiasm for the task
  • skill at doing the task
  • our emotional and physical state
  • our psychological state
  • environment and distractions

When your thinking starts to feel saturated, stop! It’s a vicious cycle that needs to get cut.

Even a brief break helps, but it’s good to reload properly every few hours.

I like to go for a little walk outside. Fresh air is paramount to our ability to think, and switching the environment for a bit takes our thoughts elsewhere and let’s us gain back some perspective.
