Did it ever happen to you that you were supposed to write an article, a project proposal, a school assignment but you were so stressed that you were not able to put together a single sentence? You are not alone. In the hectic world of today, it is very easy to lose focus. And not only focus but creativity, too. Do not worry, this is NOT an incurable disease! The treatment is easier that you think: Relaxation. Yes, it is that simple.

- Connecting to nature
- Listening to calming music
