Why you should go on an inspiration date each week
Do you ever feel like your creativity is zapped? Like you’re constantly in work-gym-sleep mode and drowning in To-Do lists?
During those moment of stress, our creativity levels are at about zero. And even if you don’t consider yourself a “creative” type, living in this Zombie Zone has an effect on both how you think and how you interact with those around you. Just remember how you feel after coming home from a busy day, saddled with groceries and already jumping ahead to tomorrow’s schedules. Do you even notice your roommate/significant other/dog/plants?
I didn’t think so.
Lately, I’ve been trying out a new ritual — one that gets me out of my own head and into The Flow. It’s a mental space where time gets lost and ideas just glide into the forefront of my mind; ones that I never would have thought of without allowing myself to get out of my Everyday.
But, it’s also been allowing me to be a Better Human. Because, when I give myself permission to take a breather, I treat myself and others in a more genuine, loving way.
