3 Tips to Get Inspired When Feeling Uninspired
For some months now, I have felt uninspired. I try to do reflections on myself and access what was missing, but I couldn’t figure it out. I was feeling, emotionally, physically and mentally drained. Recently, I reconnected with a friend and everything just started falling into place. I began to be inspired again to do more and want more for myself.
Here are the three tips that led me back to being inspired again.
- Get rid of non-progressing friendships – As much as it sucks to lose friends, sometimes its needed for growth. The social media accounts I follow have been overwhelming with people who express quotes about growth and moving forward. I did an assessment of my friends and who I have around me and realized the people that I needed to remove from my life. I slowly began distancing myself from friends that I felt like I poured more into them, then I did myself. I’m not saying it is going to be easy, but it is needed.
- Take a mental day – Mental health has always been a big topic, but lately it has become a trending topic and is everywhere. I love to use Saturday nights or Sundays as a self-love day. Devoting time to meditation to start off the session. I think meditation helps to slow down my brain and clear my head of everything I may be thinking. Light my candles, put on some soothing music to set the tone. My favorite thing to do is take a bubble bath and do a face mask afterwards. Afterwards I feel refreshed and relaxed to be calm about certain things. Put your phone on Do Not Disturb for no interruptions.
- Find Inspiration – Instead of looking at social influencers and growing envy, I grow an inspiration to go after the things I want to accomplish in life. Aside from social influencers I like to listen to podcasts related to business, mental health,, news or faith-based. Another way for me to grow inspiration is writing a list. I love writing a list with things I need to do or want to accomplish and work on figuring out how to accomplish it. Once I establish the plan and start it, it gets me inspired to move forward especially after I accomplish goals little by little.
