how getting outside helps me find creative business clarity

In any business, there will arise the need to problem solve. It's inevitable, and it will likely happen at the worst possible moment. What's important is how you respond. 

Nothing helps me get unstuck better than getting outside and getting active. Sometimes all I need is a quick walk around the block, other times a 30 minute run. When I'm present and breathing in the outdoor air, an incredible sense of clarity washes over me. 

So if I run into a problem, I get outside. I take a beat. I give myself permission to take the time I need.

Sometimes I take advantage of the calming clarity. But most times, my best ideas come to me in the middle of my run or walk. I find myself very creative amongst flowers and trees. 

Maybe it's the change of scenery, or just getting my blood flowing and heart pumping. But it's what works for me, and it's what I do when I'm feeling stuck. How do you find creative business clarity when you run into trouble?
