I like "lowering your standards". When we take ourselves too seriously, it's a form of mental paralysis. I like to read the newspaper for ideas when I am feeling blocked. What's happening in the world? How do i feel about it? Getting out of your own little box, especially these days, helps me look outward. Inward will find me. Outward requires looking out.
