I've been a bit uninspired as of late.
I don't know if its because I'm generally quite busy in other aspects of my life or I 'm having a bit of a blogging slump but for the past few weeks my inspiration has fallen flat.
I think easing the pressure of needing to blog and taking a step back to reignite my inspiration has helped massively. I spent some time over last weekend having a think about my blog, sourcing fresh inspiration and finding new motivation.
If you're feeling a little uninspired too, here's a few tips that might just help ya.
1. Create A Productive Working Space
For me, the environment that I'm in massively reflects my mood, thoughts and productivity. By creating a clean and tidy desk space, I can feel ten times more motivated! I had a little play around with my downstairs table and stacked a few of my favourite mags alongside a plant (as these are said to help uplift your mood) and it made me feel so much better than my usual messy desk situ!
2. Head To Pinterest
It might sound simile but Pinterest is a great resource that I sometimes just forget about. A few pages of scrolling and I already had inspiration for new outfits, interior ideas and blog posts.
3. Flick Through Your Fave Reads
As I've started introducing more travel features onto this blog (and with some exciting trips coming up) I decided to have a read through my favourite issues of Suitcase magazine. This mag always helps me to feel determined to achieve my goals and travel as much of the world as possible!
4. Read Other Blogs
Alongside blogging I also work 40 hours a week as a marketing exec, so finding spare time can be tricky! I tend to focus so much on getting emails sent, writing up my own blog posts, taking images, updating Instagram and so on, that sometimes I forget to read my favourite blogs! Setting aside a few hours to catch up on my faves definitely helped reignite my passion and eagerness for blogging.
5. Take Time Off
Sometimes a step back is just what you need. Taking the pressure off and re-evaluating your thoughts and goals can actually be so much more worthwhile than you think. So you may have a few less blog posts this month, it's not the end of the world and you can come back with even more ideas and content the next!
Do you have any tips for seeking inspiration, or regaining lost motivation?
