I am back!! 100%.
After almost six months I thought it was about time to write some new stuff down again. I have been at a bad place last winter and I am trying every day to grow myself stronger and happier within. I noticed how much my moods influenced my creativity. At some point there was literally nothing I could come up with, I felt like all my dreams just faded away. As a blogger, your imagination and creativity is the biggest part of your career. There were a few things that helped me to get back on track, in a different way, but maybe even in a better one.
So here are some tips and tricks to do when you feel uninspired about life:
BE sure to get enough rest and sleep. I can’t say enough how important this is! This is a big struggle point for me because I love to go out with friends. I am out of the house all the time. Either I am at school, working at the restaurant, partying, visiting events, go for drinks or dinner with friends or I am at the gym. This year I have been sick a couple of times already so I am going to focus on taking more rest this fall.
DO something new. Change your environment or your daily routine. Instead of eating your breakfast inside, go outside and eat your breakfast somewhere else. The park, garden or just at the corner of the street. Maybe there is a bakery nearby, there are so many options. What I learned this year is that it isn’t about big vacations, amazing places, it is about the beauty you see in your surroundings.
STOP using your phone for a while and try to be more present. For me, as a blogger, this is hard. Because everything I do is online. There are weekends where I just put my phone away and enjoy my offline time. The morning is the most important time of the day, I used to check my phone immediately. Since I stopped this I noticed that I wake up differently, more relaxed. I take the time to make a proper breakfast, before checking the online world.
RECOGNIZE the thoughts in your head who keep you in a negative state. Try to write them down, are they even true? Most of the time the only thing that is holding us back, is our selves. So try to get rit of these thoughts and replace them with a positive one. So every time when a negative thought is coming up, place a positive one in place. This takes some practice, but I promise it will help you for the best!
START a crazy house clean up. Replace and re-design the environment you spend in most of the time of your days. When my room is a mess, for example, I find it much harder to concentrate or relax. Every season I tend to change the house a lot, it makes me feel exciting and you will get so much inspiration from it!
