Finding Inspiration

Finding inspiration for your writing, or at work, or even just to get somewhere with a project, isn’t always as simple as you may think. Being self-motivated is a skill in itself, and once you discover what it is that gets you moving and holding yourself towards your goals, there will be no stopping you. But at first, it can seem a little tricky to draw inspiration, especially if the reason you’re looking is that any aspect of your life relies on it. The added pressure to either own money, or reach a specific target, can be overwhelming and reduce your overall productivity. So what reasons could we need motivating, and where do we find the inspiration to move forward?

Creative project

Many of us have a creative project on the side, whether that be blogging, photography, creating art, or even just making some handmade gifts on the side, but whatever reason you are looking for inspiration when it comes to creative projects, it should be the easiest way to gain motivation. Sometimes, however, it isn’t as simple as this, and you may need to step back and look around to see that spark of creativity. Of course, there is a huge difference between taking inspiration and copying, but it’s essential to look at previous creators such as Roving Foleys and see what works, and how you could implement some ideas into your work. All it takes is a little imagination.

Work

If you are self-employed, you may find it is challenging to stay on track, primarily when you work from home. If you aren’t able to manage your time effectively, you will fall into the trap of constant work, little sleep, and stress levels rising, but if you are aware of this, you should be able to prevent it, causing a large number of problems. Being very strict with yourself and realizing that our work is essential, Regardless of whether your original plans are working out or not. You will need to pick yourself up and move forward regularly. If you need some support with this is always a great idea, just having a friend or relative to fall back on, will mean a lot.

DIY

Sometimes that one shelf that you’ve been meaning to put it for months comes back to bite us; quite regularly, we find ourselves with plenty of DIY jobs to do. However, with work, family commitments, and everything else that we have done, it’s a good idea to hire someone if you are able to. Having a friendly environment to come home to at the end of the workday, is very important, and being able to relax in that space is crucial to our well-being.

Ultimately we all know our own ways of motivating ourselves, and there are many resources online to help you discover the right one for you if you don’t already know, but getting into a great routine can actually help motivate you more than anything else.
