Have you ever noticed that if you hold your cursor in the middle of an empty white area, its shape changes to an I-beam with lines either below it or next to it. This is called the click and type cursor. Scroll down to the bottom of page 1. Now if I want add a slogan right down here, I don't need to hit Enter, Enter, Enter, Tab, Tab, Tab or even center the text. I can simply take my cursor and double-click. If I turn on my show/hide paragraph marks, I can see that it's automatically put in the Enters for me and even centered the text. All I did was double-click.
So I'll go ahead and put in my slogan, Olive oil products made from the heart. So whenever you're trying to enter content in the middle of a white space in your document, don't manually move your text into the middle, just double-click where you want the text to go.
