I would like to know how you get un-stuck where you are stuck in your research. It is like the blank page problem of book writters. Sometimes, I feel that my research is not going forward in any ways. Do you have tips and tricks to get unstuck and move faster in research?

If you are stuck, I think the best solution is to go outside for a walk to empty your mind. Then sometimes, when you come back you will have that "Eureka" moment. Sometimes it is just better to take a break. Doing some yoga, sports or listening to some calm music can also help to focus on work and get in a better mood for working. For me this helps a lot.

A good strategy is to make a plan, which consists of breaking down a larger goal into small goals and every day to fix some realistic set of small goals that you want to achieve. If you are "stuck" on a task, it might be due to several reasons. If it is a lack of creativity or ideas, then taking a break can be good but also talking about your tasks with colleagues or your supervisor or friends. Or you may even talk about it on this forum

As a student, writing can be a difficult and time-consuming task. It can be difficult to stay motivated and stay focused on the task at hand. To be successful, it is important to break down the task into smaller, more manageable chunks, and to set achievable goals for yourself. It is also important to take regular breaks and to find ways to stay motivated, such as setting rewards for completing tasks. Additionally, it can be helpful to talk to other students who are also working on similar projects, as they may be able to offer valuable insights and advice. Finally, it is important to be organized and to keep track of your progress, as this can help ensure that you stay on track and make the most of your time.
