Hello SOTGC community!
We all sometimes need that extra little bit of inspiration sprinkled across the course of the day …. Here are five easy and fun ways to sneak some extra inspiration into each and every moment!
1. Leave yourself a trail of inspirational notes!
A good friend of mine bought me a box of “dream cards” as part of my birthday gift this year – small cards that you pop open whenever you are in need of some extra inspiration, each revealing a motivational quote! I instantly became addicted to hiding these little cards everywhere so that I could discover them throughout my day and be inspired. Why not make your very own set of “dream cards”? I think it’s a great way to sneak some extra inspiration into each moment of the day!
2. Update your playlist!
Some songs just have that uplifting quality! Revamp your playlist to include your favorites and enjoy on the way to work, on the bus, or on the treadmill!
3. Make human connections!
Human connections and interactions have a special way of inspiring us when we least expect it! Whether it be holding open a door for someone or sparking up conversation with the barista while you wait for your coffee, never underestimate the power of human interaction in providing inspiration!
4. Make it a group effort!
During exam periods, call shifts at the hospital, or application season, my friends and I would often agree to message each other funny songs, inspirational quotes, or words of encouragement. We built a network of positivity and support – get your friends on board and inspire each other through the challenges of life!
5. Practice positive self-talk!
Never forget to think positively; tell yourself you can! Sometimes all you need to keep going is a moment of mindfulness, a deep breath, and a happy thought! Cheer yourself on and be kind to yourself – you deserve it!
