#86 Master the art of stillness.
It is 3am, your about 30% away from finishing your final model, you are starting to think maybe you should redesign the stairs, but you haven’t even started your drawings yet…
Everything is due at 9am.
You stand up, walk to the studio window, and scream out into the cold dark world, "WTF is this evil life I have chosen!?!?!"
Trust me, I have been there. It might not have been as dramatic for you, but there are moments when there is a lot to do and not enough time to do it. So we don’t take a break, we push on, we drink coffee, we push ourselves to the limit and beyond, and while it is great to push yourself, sometimes you need to just be still for a moment. Sometimes that is all it takes to collect yourself and regain the power to be as productive as possible. 
I have noticed that when things get too overwhelming, if I get away from my work for a few minutes and just sit still, I have time to think and solutions come much easier. 
Just be still.
Sit and ask yourself, “What am I really trying to do here?” Or just sit and don’t think anything. While you work your mind is collecting thoughts and over extended periods of consciousness your mind can get cluttered, but sitting idle you can clear your head and start fresh when you get back to work. It doesn’t have to be for long. Even 5-10 minutes of sitting still can help a lot.
It sounds silly, and certainly doesn’t work for everyone, but it is something to try and who knows, you mind find it to be a great additive to your busy schedule.

Great advice (and even greater blog. 10/10 should follow).
It’s always good to take a short and well utilized break. Don’t get sucked into the world of Facebook or tumblr, just sit in silence for a minute, take a few deep breaths, practice your yoga poses. Or get up and go for a short walk, go outside, take a short jog, do some stretches. You’ll feel loads better and so much less self-loathing despair than if you had spent the time clicking through all of your friend’s party pictures..
You know the feeling I’m talking about.
Wooooohooooooooooooooo! 
Feeling accomplished ;) :D
I just finished a 2-day long concourse* with these logos, which I needed send through to someone awesome. Man, logos can be intense! But alas, I can now retire to my sleeping chamber and continue devouring the pages of Eragon. (Thanks for the extra memory, Dad!) I am one happy eighteen-year-old. Here’s my newly-born Issuu portfolio: http://issuu.com/fgariando
