Default Getting out of a slump?

we all have periods where the plastic is not flying the way you want. so what do you do? play your way (increased outings) out of it? same old same old and just let your self fall out of it? time off? back to basics?

I'm just curious what you guys like to do.

I just do what I would have done anyway. I don't stop playing, and I don't play extra, I just try to figure out what's going wrong and try to fix it. I will occasionally do extra putting practice if that's the part of my game that's slumping.

If you have them, take out a bag full of your 'non-throwing' discs for a while. Get some strange, so to speak. If you throw a bad round then you can blame it on unfamiliar plastic. If not, then you might rediscover an old disc that you thought you didn't need in the bag.

^^^ Great Idea!

I think most of us have extra discs in our bag/car/shelf. You might find something you gave up on, and it may turn into a disc you use on certain holes/shots etc. This is how I've grown to love my xXx.

What I do to break a slump is play an easier, technical course, and throw a second drive when my first is bad. Maybe a midrange after a driver toss. This coupled with the all important field practice helps clear the mind.

It depends. If you've been playing 10 rounds a week or so, for a year-Then take a break for a week or two, and rest/heal your body.

If you've been playing 1 round a month for a year or so-Get your ass out there and increase your playing time!

Stop thinking about being in a slump.
Make sure to have fun even when playing below you expectations; laugh at that big roll away.
Practice putting day and night until you are super confident. Putting can carry the day even when your drives suck.
