As women, we tend to play hard in everything we do. From running businesses, companies, and supporting our growing families; we are quite powerful beings. But with that power often comes neglect. Neglect of our personal needs over others and slowly but surely we can find that we’ve lost the lightness and inspiration in our lives.
So how do we get that back? Get back to a place where we are filled with joy, excitement and the energy to acomplish anything we set our minds to…
Here are a few tips on gaining more inspiration in your life. All very simple, but often overlooked.
Connect to Nature
Connecting with nature through observation provides many opportunities to learn, grow, gain new wisdom, receive guidance, and resolve difficult situations. Embrace and absorb the sights, sounds and smells of nature to help you connect to your inner self.
– Watch a sunrise or sunset
– Observe birds in flight
– Listen to the sound of flowing water (natural bodies of water, fountains)
Read Words of Inspiration
Read a feel good book or inspirational quotes that help you to believe in the magic of life.
Acknowledge at least five experiences or people in your life that you are grateful for. Express gratitude to everyone on your list. Create a “journal of gratitude” that holds all of your moments of appreciation.
Create or Appreciate Art
Just like music, art is a great therapeutic modality. Art comes in many forms and is even more effective when engaged directly (creating) rather than passively (watching, listening). It doesn’t matter if you are a novice or a professional! Find your artistic medium (painting, dance, sewing, drawing, scrapbooking, etc.) and let the inspiration flow!
