3 Tips to get Inspired

Writer’s block. Cold wet Monday mornings. Those days when you can’t get inspired to do what you need to do…

What do you do, to perk yourself up, to turn those uninspired moments into energetic, life-grabbing ones?

Here are some of the things that help me:

  1. Relive a happy memory: think of a time when you felt energised and inspired in the past. Re-live it, picture it, hear the sounds, smell the smells… remember that feeling of happiness, joy, excitement, inspiration…
  2. Watch a movie or read a book that inspires you. For me, that’d probably be a feel-good chick flick
  3. Listen to music. I don’t mean put on your favourite CD in the background. I mean LISTEN… and sing along, as loud as you can! I have a playlist on my iPhone called “Inspirational” and it’s full of songs that have uplifting lyrics that are simply good for the soul, and I put this on whenever I feel a bit glum; in the kitchen, in my car… or wherever I am. I add songs to it all the time… here are a few that I particularly enjoy:
  • Wonder by Naughty Boy feat. Emeli Sandé
  • Roar by Katy Perry
  • Happy by Pharrell Williams
  • Unwritten by Natasha Bedingfield
  • One Day Like This by Elbow
  • I am the one and only by Chesney Hawkes – what a 90’s classic! 🙂
  • Shine, Greatest Day, and Never Forget by Take That
  • Who We Are by Boyzone
  • … and many, many more…

I hope these simple ideas inspire you (let me know!). Have an amazing day, readers.
