Everyone at some point will experience a time where they will feel uninspired. When you’re constantly working on projects, you can find yourself drained by the time you finish them all, and feel like you’re completely out of ideas. I have found myself in that place several times! However, feeling uninspired can actually be a great thing! I look at it as an opportunity for growth, and the chance to push myself creatively. With that said, here are three simple ways that help me to stay inspired creatively:
Disconnect: Take some time for yourself, disconnect from any distractions, and truly relax! Sometimes just taking a little time for yourself, can give you the energy and clarity that you need to keep going. Whether it’s for an hour, or 24 hours, treat yourself to a relaxing day a home, a quick yoga session, or even a nice walk in the park to get re-energized.
Constant Knowledge: No matter how successful you may be, there is always something new to learn within your field that will help you grow, so take the opportunity educate yourself. Trends and algorithms change all the time, so by taking the time to read, research, and learn more about your craft can only benefit you in the long run, but it can also spark new ideas for you as well!
Social Media: Majority of us are logged onto social media for at least for 5 minutes everyday, so as you catch up on your social feeds, take screenshots or make note of things that you find interesting, things you like, etc., and use it for inspiration. You never know what will click!
