1. Build Better Relationships.
If you’re feeling uninspired, try going out and talking to people (or text them from the comfort of your couch). Talk to your friends, your mentors, or strangers on the internet; share ideas, and find inspiration. By expanding your mind through communicating, you can escape your own situation, establish a new perspective, and gather new information that you can apply to your own life.
Inspiration from outside sources? Who would’ve thought!
2. Get Out of Your Comfort Zone
Be willing to try something new. To get out of a rut, you need to know what is keeping you in it. Often our routines can be our greatest help, and our most difficult obstacle. Monotony can lead to complacency and boredom. Getting out of your comfort zone can shake this; try a new approach to whatever your normal routine is – travel (explore somewhere you’ve never been), try a new kind of food, sign up for a new hobby – spark a change for the sake of stretching that part of your brain. Trigger the fear of the unknown within you; that fear can fuel your inspiration.
3. Practice Self Care
This is so key. I encourage self care in all forms, the first however being movement. Regular exercise and simply moving your body will improve your cognitive function. Movement changes how you feel, so if you’re feeling lazy get up, get those endorphins flowing and allow the energy to manifest into your life.
Self care doesn’t stop at exercise though, so make sure to take the time to connect with yourself. Whether this means taking a hike to think to yourself, or simply unplugging for 30 mins to journal or meditate do something with intention to remind yourself that you matter to YOU.
In the end you will always be okay, don’t feel defeated by this current lack of inspiration – you will find what you need in due time.
