Been there many times. :)
Hiking or other blood-stimulating exercise with good vistas generally
works helps me, esp. if followed by a good meal with lots of greens, a
hot bath, and a brief nap. The time away clears the mind, and I've lost
count of the number of times I wake from a short nap knowing exactly how
to solve a previously difficult problem.
Let your background processes do the work while your foreground
processes rest and absorb nature. Even a brief walk in the rain can
sometimes help. Nature rarely makes a design mistake and can be
inspiring, even if in subtle ways.
One of the things I found counterproductive about day jobs I've had is
how short their siesta, and how non-existing their napping facililities.
:) I don't mind working later if I can take the time to get refreshed
enough to enjoy the second half of the day as much as the first.
