I have been wanting to do this post for a while and share what I use to do some of my writing and blog posts.
Here are my top 5 tools and instruments for writing!
Music is an absolute must when I am writing.
I need to have something to have my mind flowing and in a positive state. This is easily achieved through putting on my Bose AE-2 headphones on full volume and tuning out of the outside world. It gives my mind a chance to go completely nuts and spit out anything that I have stored in the back of it.
The type of music doesn’t matter.
What matters is that you enjoy the music and it is putting you in a good mood. When I am in a good positive mood and writing, it doesn’t feel like I am writing, it is more a flow state of my fingers hitting the keys and words being produced in a well structured fashion.
If you don’t feel like that when you are writing, you are not writing in a state of your full potential.
Blast some music and just have at it. Don’t expect anything.
I need some stimulation to get all of my thoughts out quick and easy.
Coffee is a big help due to the caffeine contained in coffee.
I choose coffee because I like the taste and the hot temperature tends to wake my brain up.
Caffeine releases dopamine in your brain which gives you more motivation, focus and drive.
I take a lot of other supplements as well.
For my full list read: The Ultimate Supplement Stack.
Meditating right before I write lets me explore every single angle of what I am about to write about.
It is a great feedback method and a way to formulate my thoughts before I sit down to pound them out.
I have a lot of articles written on meditation if you would like to explore the amazing practice:
The ultimate creativity tool.
If you have any objection to pot, and you believe it is a harmful substance, you have been misinformed and lied to.
It simply isn’t.
I am not going to lie, a majority of this site and my writing was created and written while under the influence of marijuana.
I guess it makes me lazy and not want to do anything…
I even work out on pot.
Paranoia? It’s an illusion. Check out this video.
Probably one of the best supplements I take.
Alpha Brain is a nootropic which basically means it is a brain enhancing supplement full of great vitamins and minerals

I hope you try some of my tools and ideas out and give writing a shot if you aren’t already interested in it.
It is a great way to release your thoughts, express yourself, and share what you have to say with the world.
I am going to keep doing it, and I encourage you to as well!
