Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going. – Jim Rohn
Inspiration can come from the most unlikely of places. Many people go looking for inspiration, but many times, just allowing yourself to be in tune with things naturally will provide great inspiration. It isn’t necessary to have an epiphany one day to become inspired either. It can happen in the smallest ways and from the littlest things. In fact, changing daily habits and committing to positive change can provide a lifetime of inspiration. Commitment is key!
10 Tips for Daily Inspiration
1. Breathe and enjoy your surroundings
Though our lives are crammed with studying, working and dealing with errands and other headaches, taking the time to take a walk, breathe, and do nothing but enjoy the moment will make you a more relaxed and pleasant person, who is open to many different things.
2. Laugh More
Laughter is the best medicine, especially for issues that common prescriptions cannot cure. Taking life less seriously and finding the joy and silliness in each day will inspire your personality and allow more positivity to flow in your life.
Though multitasking can be seen as a strong point, doing too many things at once means that you are not giving your full attention to any of these activities. Keep your mind and space clean. Participate in one activity at once and allow yourself to live in that moment. Also, keep your home and work space clean. A clean space will clear your head and allow the creative juices to flow.
4. Live with Purpose
Every life needs purpose and every day needs meaning. When you wake up in the morning, decide the purpose of your day’s course. No purpose is too small. If the purpose of your day is to remain positive or smile more, then that is an excellent place to begin with your inspiration.
5. Subscribe to Positive Media
What are you watching and reading daily? Be sure that it’s positive. For instance, listening to the nightly news could be switched with watching a program on GaiamTV. One great way to receive daily inspiration is to stay subscribe to Power of Positivity on Facebook. By becoming a fan and being part of this fast growing, positive community you will receive daily quotes of inspiration and connect with like-minded people any time.
6. Choose to See the Positive Perspective
To become in tune with your own life and receive personal inspiration, you must learn to tune out the opposite. Worrying about negative wants, needs, and thoughts will muddle your own thoughts of purpose and confuse you. Instead, make a commitment to your-self and your personal goals.
7. Repeat Daily Affirmations
Positive Self affirmations will help with self confidence and will give you a daily boost of inspiration. You can find excellent positive affirmations, and articles describing them simply by searching “Affirmations” at the top right of the screen here. 🙂
8. Stay Creative
For some this is painting, for others it’s reading, meditation, or writing to name a few. No matter what your preferred outlet, do it daily or as often as you feel inspired.
9. Take Action
Actions that you participate in help define your purpose. Constantly participating in positive actions will help you become a positive person without thinking about it.
10. Be Y-O-U
You will never be happy or inspired by imitating or becoming someone else. Remain true to who you are and give the world the gift of your own personal inspiration and positivity.
