7 Ways To Add Inspiration To Your Day
Every business owner, employee and entrepreneur needs to have inspiration. It’s how we get motivated to do our best work.
But staying inspired and motivated isn’t always easy and it certainly doesn’t always come naturally. The good news is that you can use your surroundings and your actions to influence your motivation levels.
If you need some inspiration today, check out these tips on how to stay motivated:
1. DO SOME EXERCISE
It’s well documented that exercise has so many advantages to your life and it has a great effect of clearing your mind and helping you to focus on the things that matter. Use exercise to identify and focus on your inspiration. See why exercise makes you smarter.
Sometimes we can get stuck in a bit of a rut or stuck on a specific task and a good way to shake yourself out of it is to get out and talk to other people. If you have a mentor or a business advisor they would be an obvious choice, but sometimes it can help just to take a break and talk with a colleague, a friend or another contact.
3. PIMP YOUR OFFICE
Your work environment is a big influence on your enthusiasm and inspiration levels. What’s your office like? Do you have a clean workspace, some ambient music playing? Take a look at these steps to add inspiration to your workplace or consider adding some inspiring business art.
4. WORK REMOTELY
Sometimes a change of scenery is a great motivator, particularly if you want to work ON the business, rather than in the business or if you want to work on a strategy uninterrupted. Visit your local coffee shop, work from home or sit in a park for a few hours and mix it up.
5. LISTEN TO PODCASTS
There is so much good podcast content around, if you need to focus and rejuvenate your thoughts, a podcast can be a good way to do it. Some of my favourite minds to listen to include Tim Ferris, Noah Kagan and Seth Godin.
6. GET OUTDOORS
For me almost nothing is as inspirational as looking at the ocean or peering out amongst the treetops. Your environment plays such a huge role that changing it up can have a massive difference on your day and attitude. Try it.
7. READ & LEARN FROM OTHERS
When I need some inspiration I always find myself seeking a new business related book to read. Not everything you read will take the same approach as you, but by understanding other’s paths, you start to stretch your own.
