Being cooped up in the house for a few days is hard when you have a cold; staying home for 6 months to avoid getting the worst cold in the world is super difficult.
At the beginning of the pandemic, some of us were inspired to complete home projects we never got to, read that book that's been on the shelf, and generally give attention to things we couldn’t if things were normal.
That’s hard to sustain.
Now that we’re heading into fall, we need some re-inspiration - something to pull us out of the ‘rona funk we’re in. Here are 5 ways to get inspired and back on track.
1. Create a Vision Board
Vision Boards are great for helping you focus your mind on what you want for the future. Get some magazines and collage it or just write down what plans you have in the next six months. Pin, paste, tape it up - and step back to take an intentional look at where you want to be.
2. Try a new creative form
I personally like to write haiku, what about you? This is the perfect time to start a new creative form. If you paint, pick an instrument. If you’re a musician, try sculpting. There’s endless inspiration in all forms of art - be creative in a way that you haven’t tried before.
3. Read the autobiography of a person you admire
This is a tough one for me - I’m not a big fan of autobiographies, but now’s the time to give it a try. Autobiographies give the writer catharsis and you can benefit from the outpouring of emotion. You can experience some inspiration and self-discovery too.
4. Ask someone about their greatest life lessons
Kind of piggy-backing off of #3 - get an autobiographical tidbit from someone you know. We all have different life experiences and finding out someone else’s lessons may help you on your life journey.
5. Listen to an entire album
We all have our favorite playlists that we automatically turn on while we’re cleaning, working, etc. Why not take some time to listen to an entire album - the intro, the interludes, the outro. Get inside the mind of an artist you love.
Choose one or all of these to try, and let us know in the comments how it went!
