Let's face it, there is a ton of negativity in the world. It's easy to get sucked into it and it will happen if you are not consciously aware of what and who you are surrounding yourself with.
How to stay inspired is something that I questioned myself. I know that can be a challenge for some people especially when there is so much negativity floating around.
In this blog post, I wanted to share 4 simple tips that I have applied to my life that not only keep me inspired, but also empower me. They are simple. They may be common knowledge for you but for the most part, may not be common practice.
1. Quiet Time for Yourself
This is an important one for me because as soon as the kids are up and the day starts, quiet time is a challenge. Rather than try to find time when everyone else is awake, I find the time when everyone else is still asleep.
I get up early so that I can have some time to myself. I use this time in a variety of ways...to reflect, to journal, to meditate, to get in the right mindset...
I truly love this time.
2. Take Control of Health
It is amazing how inspiration can be influenced by your health. Having a toxic body is reflected in a toxic mind. Inspiration has difficulty weaving through a toxic mind. When you feel good from the inside out, it makes a significant difference in your ability to stay inspired.
3. Work on Yourself Daily
I take some time each and every day to work on myself and my mindset. This may be reading a book, listening to audio or watching a video that inspires and empowers me in some way. Each day I strive to create a better version of myself which assists me in achieving my goals.
4. Express Gratitude
I complete my gratitude in a variety of ways. At the end of each day, I have used a notebook to reflect on my day writing down 10 things that I am grateful for. Doing this at night allows you to go to sleep with good things on your mind. I have also recorded these in a notes doc on my phone. That's all good until your phone crashes and resort back to a notebook and pen.
I've also written my gratitudes out in the morning as part of my quiet time. Do what works for you, but if you are just starting, my recommendation would be to do them at night so that you end the day on a positive note.
As I said, they are simple tips. They may be common knowledge, but for most people they are not common practice.
Take some time to implement these changes in your day!
May You Be Empowered to Reconnect with Your True Self and Fulfill the Purpose in Your Soulful Heart,
