I’m not going to lie to you, after 3 days of being totally unplugged (it’s been a bank holiday here in the UK) I’m taking a while to get back into the swing of things today.
But learning how to switch ourselves back on after a well-earned rest, is one of the most important things creatives, entrepreneurs and anyone that’s out there to make things happen, can learn to do. We need to know that if we take some time out to dip into full relax mode to charge the batteries, that when we get back to it we can pick up the pace again.
For me, getting back into the zone and fired up always involves feeding up on inspiration to get the creative juices flowing. It’s the start of the whole creative journey of making things happen. I used to feel guilty about these lazy days of browsing through TED talks, going for a wander outside, pottering through Pinterest, but it’s an essential part of my creative process.
So, if like me you’re re-engaging with your work today then join me in cutting yourself some slack. Kick back, open up, absorb, be inspired until you’re ready. To leap into action and go make sh*t happen.
Here’s my Pinterest Inspiration board of videos and quotes that I dip into when I want to get inspired. Let me know if you have any suggestions of videos to watch to add to my Inspiration Board. Leave them in the comments below.
