In a recent post, I mentioned how coffee affects the brain. My fellow artist, you are about to learn if you don’t know or be even further convinced why coffee is your best friend. The caffeine in coffee stimulates the central nervous system after passing through the bloodstream. Caffeine, which is indeed a natural drug, has been studied and recorded to help improve mental performance, alertness and concentration. That just might be enough to help you with your artistic block which I also spoke about in the same article.
To no surprise, caffeine can improve wakefulness when suffering to lack of sleep and lack of alertness which is the main use and reason to drink coffee in the first place. However, there is more to it than that! According to a few additional studies, coffee is said to improve your memory performance! If nothing else, that is my reason I’d drink more of it! This memory improvement is highly effective especially when doing repetitive tasks.
Sadly, many people abuse coffee due to higher intake which decreases performance and desensitizes the body to the natural caffeine drug. Caffeine doesn’t make someone dependant on it and this information is confirmed by WHO. Many people drink coffee everyday and have done so for years, but that is a habit which is not the same as addiction.
The bad news about coffee is that once you get into the cycle of having it, you can’t just stop once you decide enough is enough. The dark side of coffee would be the symptoms of caffeine withdrawal, which include headache or migraines and drowsiness. The symptoms can be avoided if caffeine consumption is slowed progressively each day.
There are a few nightmares artists have to deal with on a regular basis. Broken tools, critics, financial issues and such. However, no matter what the dilemma may be, the greatest fear to an artist is the block. No matter if you’re a writer, a musician, an artist—if you use creativity in anyway, you can fall victim to the block.
When faced with a block, being creative and buckling down on a project can be a project itself. It’s almost as if you have lost all motivation, all inspiration, all reason and desire to create and no matter how bad you want to, you just can’t think of what to do next.
So how does one go about defeating this horrible artistic curse? The first thing you should do is determine what kind of block you have. What is it that is causing you to be unproductive? The block could be all mental, it could be emotional or it could even be just because you’re hungry.
Once you have determined your block, it’s time to get moving. Moving around a little and exercising can help smash those mental blocks simply by pumping some blood to the brain. Also, drinking coffee is sure to fire up your brainpower since coffee is a stimulant.

There are many different types of art, but when we hear the word “art” we commonly think of drawing or painting on a canvas. Music has been a form of art for thousands of years and even today it is the most common art of expression. Music has been said in studies to be more memorable and to stick with a person for life. There’s no doubt that music has a high level of impact in a person’s life.
Music has been known to affect moods and to increase productivity. In one shocking observation, music has been noted to bring a “dead” man back to life again as seen in this video.
Amazing! The old gentleman appears to come back to life through the power of this beautiful form of art we call music. If art has this kind of effect on a person, what else can it do in a person’s life? Make no doubt about it—art has the power to change and replenish lives and I feel we are just at the tip of the iceberg with this discovery.
