Life can become overwhelming and sometimes you need to take a break. This is why it is always a good idea to disconnect so you can reconnect with new eyes. Taking a step back allows you to view things without being involved. When you focus too much on one thing your judgement can be obscured and jumbled. When disconnecting it is smart to have zero involvement in the ask, issue, or concept in order to clear your mind and develop new ideas.
When reconnecting with new eyes it can often become easy to fall right back where you left off but what you should be doing is keeping your mind open and leaving yourself relaxed in order to avoid frustration. Therefore, whenever you get stuck in a rut, take a break/disconnect; you might surprise yourself.
