Inspiration is what motivates us and keeps us going, even when the going gets tough. Inspiration connects us to our deeper selves and with the values we cherish the most.
However, at some point during our everyday lives we all lose sight of the things and ideas that inspire us. These five tips will help you overcome those moments. They will allow you to find inspiration even when it seems hard to find, so you can regain your center and keep striving for your goals.
Pay Attention to Your Dreams
Although dreams may be the most obvious source of inspiration, we tend to overlook them. What are your dreams telling you? Pay attention to them, write them down and think about them. Also, notice your thoughts when you are daydreaming. Being aware of your hopes and dreams can be a very powerful instrument, a compass to guide your personal path to growth.
People Are a Source of Inspiration
Be picky with the people you surround yourself with. Supportive friends who share your same ideals are an invaluable source of inspiration. A good friend can offer the right word of advice at the right moment, and remind you of whom you are and what are your values. Conversely, unhelpful friendships can sap your energy, so be wise when you choose your friends.
Art can be a powerful and abundant source of inspiration. Read a book, watch a movie, visit a museum. Get in touch with other sensibilities and let them inspire you. Your favorite works of art are also a reflection of yourself: they tell a truth that you treasure. Go back to them whenever you feel depleted or exhausted.
Take a Break
If you feel overwhelmed or disconnected from your source of inspiration, just take a break. Practice deep breathing and relax your body, one part at a time. Alone with yourself, be mindful of your thoughts as a way to get in touch with your own experience. Sometimes a pause is all it takes to regain your center and find inspiration again.
Use an Object as a Reminder
A physical item can be a useful reminder of the ideals and the words that never fail to inspire you. Placed strategically, those items can strengthen your resolve and energize you while you go about your day-to-day life.
