One of my favorite quotes by Einstein is ‘Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving’. We all know what if feels like when you belive you’re run out of strength, joy and inspiration. However, there are couple quick steps to get back in the saddle. They work for me and for several more dozens of people whom I know, so they should work for you as well.
Firstly, remember this state will pass, and will pass pretty soon.
Secondly, keep moving. This is actually Einstein’s piece of advice. Don’t stop and you’ll get your inner balance back soon.
One of the ways to keep moving is dive into art of others. Normally, this is a huge piece of inspiration which helps you get new ideas. Newton is said to have seen an apple fall down to invent a law of universal gravitation, why not remember this and apply to yourself? Your greatest ideas may come from the most unsignificant at first sight things.
