12 Tips On Keeping You Inspired

You may think that staying inspired 24/7 is impossible, but having inspiration each day is a key factor in achieving our goals. Some of the tips in this post may seem like common sense, but it’s surprising how many people forget about them.

Part 1: Stay Healthy

  1. Drink a glass of water.
    • When you wake up each morning, drink a glass of water. Overnight, your body gets dehydrated after going hours without anything to drink. A glass of water when you wake up will leave you hydrated and feeling fresh.
  2. Move and sweat.
    • Many people dread daily exercise. What they may not know is that exercising every day can boost your energy level, improve your mood, and relieve stress.
  3. Get some sleep.
    • Experts say that if you feel drowsy during the day, you haven’t had enough sleep. The average adult needs 7-9 hours a night, however, some people need as little as 6 hours or as many as 10 hours of sleep. Getting enough rest provides you with the energy you need.

Part 2: Plan Your Day

  1. Top 3 tasks.
  2. Each morning, conduct a list of the top 3 tasks you want to accomplish that day. Focus on completing these items before you tackle anything else. This keeps you organized and directed.
  3. The 50/10 rule.
  4. Never just work until you feel like taking a break. Work on one important task for 50 minutes and then take a 10 minute break. This allows you to refocus.
  5. Reflect daily.
    • Try ending your day with 10 minutes of reflection. This also allows you to self-evaluate.

Part 3: Keep Learning

  1. Read.
    • Although not everyone may enjoy reading, it increases knowledge, which in turn keeps you inspired. Challenge yourself to read something useful at least once a week.
  2. Browse.
    • Some of us may do this daily without even knowing it. Browsing, such as watching tutorials or conducting research, can increase our capabilities.
  3. Brainstorm.
    • Taking the time to brainstorm may be more useful than you might think. Brainstorming is the key to bringing out your creativity.

Part 4: Focus on What Makes You Happy

  1. Express gratitude.
    • Gratitude promotes happiness. Challenge yourself each month to think of 10 things you are grateful for.
  2. Clean your desk.
    • Unless you are someone who absolutely loves having everything in front of you all at once, a tidy desk can give you energy and inspiration. A clean space allows you to focus on the work that needs to be done.
  3. Indulge in your favorite things.
  4. Always remember to set aside time for yourself to just relax. It is important to go out and enjoy your favorite things, such as going for a bike ride or playing with your pet.
