We are all artists, no matter what our passion is, we create art. I can speak for myself when I say that I have been in a funk when it comes to creativity. It happens to the best of us, but it can be a challenge to get out of. So for those of you that are going through this little phase, here are a few things that you can do to become inspired.
1. Take a walk
Walking can clear your mind so that you can see the world around you. Inspiration is everywhere, you just need to open your eyes.
2. Go somewhere different
If you normally go to a Starbucks every morning, try the locally owned coffee shop downtown instead.
3. Read a book
I know that you have a book in your room that you have been meaning to read, but have never gotten to it. Read it! So much inspiration can be on the first page.
4. Take a vacation
Even if you just go somewhere for the weekend. Get out of the town that you are in and go explore.
5. Change the screen saver on your phone
I know that this may sound a little silly, but I can’t tell you how many times that I have been inspired by someone’s wallpaper on their phone.
6. Create a vision board
Creating a vision board of everything that you want in life, or the things that make you smile can really change your mood.
It doesn’t matter if I am shopping or window shopping, it always inspires me. Grab your shopping buddy and go!
8. Listen to music
Listen to your favorite music! I love me some 80’s and 90’s country!
9. Listen to a podcast
There are so many inspirational podcasts out there, pick one!
10. Talk to your favorite person
Talking to someone that you love can really help shift the mindset.
