Do you ever feel unmotivated or uninspired? Does each day feel like a continuation of the one before it? Does the thought of an instant pick-me-up get you even a little bit excited? We’ve all been there. We’ve all wished for even the smallest thing to mix up our day, to alleviate some of the boredom, redundancy, and routine. Well, look no further. I have compiled my top five ways to add a little inspiration to your days.
1. Morning Meditation
I know, I know. It’s not an easy thing to commit to. And in my case, it’s even more challenging to DO period. But, my acupuncturist has been on me for years to simply do three minutes a day. She says it will change my life. Not so sure about that. But I do know that studies have shown that consistent meditation can change our brain chemistry--for the better! It helps with relaxation, calmness, mindfulness, and yes, even inspiration. I have just begun my meditation journey. I’m starting with baby steps, by using a guided meditation to help, er, guide me through the process. So, devote a few minutes each morning to YOU and if you need help, guided meditation is the way to go.
2. Daily Inspirational Quote
It doesn’t get much simpler than this. When you subscribe you will receive a daily inspirational quote delivered directly to your email inbox. What better way to add a little sparkle of motivation and inspiration to your day.
3. Schedule Time With Loved Ones
We all get caught up in the rat race that is life. But we need to make time to connect with the special people in our lives. A lunch or dinner date with a close friend will do wonders for your soul (assuming you actually like this person!) No time to stop for a meal? Coffee or a drink will do just fine. It’s about the people you are with and the human connection that we all need. So, go and schedule a date with your bestie. Now!
4. Checks To Inspire

5. Go For A Walk
Yes, something as simple as going for a walk, can add inspiration to your day. It gets you moving, motivated, and mindful. It allows you to take in your surroundings and really be in the moment. So, next time you find yourself bored, in a funk, and yearning for some inspiration, get outside and get inspired!
