Have you guys ever experienced a period of time where you just couldn't think straight, couldn't even solve a problem that you normally could solve?

If yes, what would you do when it happened ? How do you recover from it?

Additionally, what is the reason behind this?

yes, when that happens, I do what your CF handle suggests.

also, I think this would be a consequence of some kind of burnout. taking a rest is a good idea in such cases.

you should take a rest and then just go and read some useful blogs (or just-chilling blogs like this one)

Hmmm, I wonder if it's possible to just continue solving problems until you find yourself back, at the end of the day, it might just be an psychological illusion.

If this happens in a contest I just go to the toilet.

Actually, oftentimes I read a task and go straight to the toilet.

The toilet is a magical place concerning creativity and peace of mind.

      As soon as I set up my desktop in the toilet it's no toilet anymore but a man cave. It loses its magic.

      Spoiler

      But I love this train of thought!

        why not simply participate with something other than a desktop?

        what?

Writing down your thoughts on paper can help you think better.

It's so sad for me since I cannnot solve some easy problems recently. As you can see, my rating and rank dropped during some previous contest. I'm also looking for some solutions. :(

I usually wait for divine inspiration, and cry if it doesn't arrive

usually when I can't think straight it's because I'm feeling sleepy or having a small headache, eitherway I simply go to sleep. but when I'm not feeling sleepy I like to take a short break, then write my thoughts on a paper and try to think from the begging, mostly it helps me.
