Hey guys! Welcome back. As a content creator, a question I get asked quite often is how I stay inspired and what I do when I am feeling uninspired. So today I thought I would answer that question. The truth is I do feel uninspired sometimes. And sometimes that lack of inspiration really breaks me down. But there are things that I do to stay inspired that help me stay on top of my content creation and here are what those are.
1. Break down my goals.
It seems simple enough, but it is truly effective. When I am struggling to find inspiration I look back on my goals and I try to break them down. I look at the things I want to accomplish and break them down based on things that I can do in the moment. That gives me at least something to work towards even if it’s just something small. Any action is better than no action.
2. Think about the future.
The future can seem scary and overwhelming at times, but it is also very inspiring for me. I see the future as a place of endless possibilities and opportunities. And that really helps inspire me and gives me ideas. Regardless of whether I am talking about the future or not, just knowing that I have a long road ahead of me really helps get my creative juices flowing.
3. Switch things up.
Having the same routine everyday and always doing the same thing is fine most of the time. But when I am feeling uninspired one of the best things I can do is switch things up. Whether it is changing up something in my routine, rearranging or redecorating, or just reaching out to someone I haven’t connected with in a while, switching things up helps change my perspective and helps me feel more inspired.
4. Do something active.
Whether it is a full body workout, a walk around outside, or some stretching, getting my heart pumping and my blood flowing really helps me creatively. It also gives me more energy that helps me get to work on things that I may have been putting off or haven’t had the energy to do. So one of the things I do when I am feeling most uninspired is get a good workout in. It’s just hard to do sometimes when you live with other people.
5. Just do it.
The reality is sometimes I feel uninspired and unmotivated at exactly the worst possible moment. But to get through it sometimes I just have to do whatever it is. It may not be great the first couple of times I try, but it is at least getting something going and I am able to maybe pull something from it. So sometimes when I feel uninspired I sit down and get to work anyway because I don’t have a choice.
