Busy Hands And Busy Minds

Hello Everyone!

So, I’ve been rather busy lately, and I’ve not been posting things up as regularly as I’d liked, but I’m back on the wagon, and I’m ready with plenty of ideas for you guys!

For today’s post, I’ll be talking about the best ways you can keep busy. This is great for those of us who are stuck on a particular problem, or have an issue that’s not easy to deal with. Sometimes, being busy is the best thing for it. So, let’s get to it!

1. Craft Something

Yes, craft something. Whether it’s knitting a blanket, or gardening, crafting something is therapeutic. It calms the mind and helps you focus. Eventually it’ll help you realise the solution to your problem and you’ll discover that the answer might have been a simple action or a simple phrase. Either way, keeping your hands busy by crafting is great for your mind, creatively and analytically…not to mention you’ll have a keepsake you can either sell or make into an heirloom.

2. Read A Book

Reading a book is a really great way to come up with a solution to any problem. Sometimes you’ll find the answer literally staring you in the face. It’s a creative way of asking for help, some authors may have been in the position you’re in, and they probably wrote it down in the book you’re reading. You never know!

3. Volunteer At A Local Charity/Event

Sometimes just doing anything else will help. You might get the odd person who’s actually interested in your life and can see something is wrong. By telling them your problem, they could probably help you out with some great advice. I know I’ve been there. Let’s just say, my career in the film industry has taken a little detour, and by telling other people about it, I’ve learned some neat tricks, with their advice. It never hurts to ask for help, and more often than not, people want to help, you just have to find the right ones that will.

4. Practice Makes Perfect

This is for those of us who are artsy, sporty, or for those of us who have something they want to perfect. Practice that talent of yours, whether it’s drawing, playing an instrument, football, tennis, or even learning another language. Practicing something else will take your mind off your problem, for a little while, so that when you’re done, and you go back to the problem, you’ve found your answer! I can’t tell you how many times I’ve played the piano (albeit aggressively at times – sometimes, you just have to let off some steam) and as soon as I’m done, I’ve found the solution to a difficult problem I was trying to solve.


Well, there you have it. My four pieces of advice. I know it’s not much, but I was suddenly inspired to do this because I’ve basically been doing all of this for the last week or two, purely because my impatience at finding a good modelling offer is driving me insane. So, expect a couple of good craft posts, or a few good book reviews in the next few weeks! As always, leave your tips in the jar below, and we’ll see you soon!
