5 Ways to Get Inspired On Demand
When we are inspired, we feel good. This makes doing what we have to do easier and more enjoyable. It also makes the time go by faster.
Some other interesting things getting inspired does is help you sleep better, get rid of your migraine headaches, and lower your blood pressure. You’re welcome.
There is nothing more personally rewarding than doing what you have committed to do. Above all, the reward of being accomplished and capable will be enough to get you through the day with ease and drama free.

Welcome to Wellbeing Messengers Thrive Vibe. Hello, I’m Carmen Perez, the Wellbeing Messenger and I’m here to talk about how to calm the chaos, reclaim your time, and transform the way you experience your world.
Imagine with me for a moment, you have a day filled with work, before you even check your calendar you get your coffee, you chat it up a little bit, you read a few emails on your phone, and you even managed to check Facebook. When you finally start shuffling the papers on your desk or start to get to work and look at your calendar it’s already 10:30am and guess what, you still feel like doing nothing. I know I’m not the only one who’s had these kinds of days. Days when you have to find a way to get inspired because you’re not motivated, and you can’t focus on anything that you need or want to do.

How to Do You Get Inspired When You Feel Like Doing Nothing
So, how do you get inspired when you feel like doing nothing? Sure, you could give into your whims and do nothing. But how long would that work before you weren’t given a choice because something was either on fire or about to be disconnected? That would only welcome more chaos into your life. So, I have a plan, a much better plan, and that is to get inspired. Why? Because it makes the work easier to do and the time go by much faster too. I have five ways to help you get inspired no matter what you have to do that I’d like to share with you.
Step 1: Only Do What You Need to Do That Day
The first way is to only do what you need to do that day. Work on what is due, whether it is meeting a deadline or paying the bills. Don’t ignore things on your calendar that will smack you on the back of your head like your mama used to if left undone. It causes unnecessary chaos and drama. When you’re not feeling inspired, that’s the last thing you need, to make things worse. When you do what you have to do, you can enjoy that freedom without the weight of any neglected obligations.
Step 2: Do the Thing You Are Looking Forward to the Least, First
The second thing you can do to get inspired is to do the thing that you’re looking forward to doing the least, first. A lot of people save that for the end of their day. Get the work you’re avoiding getting done as soon as possible. When you start your day, you have the most energy. So use that powerful energy to focus on the work that you’re looking forward to doing the least. When I don’t want to do something, I focus on why I have to get it done and what will happen if I don’t. Connecting with your why, you must do anything will make getting it done just a little bit easier.
Step 3: Find Another View
The third way I have for you to get inspired is to find another view. Sitting at our desks for hours is boring and it’s not good for us either. Get up and move your workspace, go to another room or a coffee shop. Leave the premises for a few hours.
When I was a paralegal, I reviewed contracts outside on a sunny day while sipping tea from time to time at a big garden there and I’d sit on a bench. You want to talk about efficiency, by the time I got back to my office I knocked a few things off my to-do list, I got some sun, I took a break, I hydrated, I reviewed a contract. That’s the kind of multitasking I support; it took only working smarter to achieve more and infuse a little quality of life into my workday.
Step 4: Work When You Feel Your Best
The fourth way to get inspired is to work when you feel your best. Too often we waste good feeling time socializing and avoiding what we need to do. That good mood fuels you so you get to the work faster and you’ll make fewer mistakes.
Step 5: Embrace Exhaustion and Take a Break
The last way I have to share with you to help you get inspired is to actually embrace that feeling of exhaustion and take a break. We all get burned out and need to play or not play from time to time. Just like you can schedule an appointment with your doctor, you can schedule a break.
There’s no reason to wait a year to go on vacation. Planning and taking a few days as a break every 90 days to relax and rejuvenate decreases your stress and improves many chronic conditions like insomnia, high blood pressure, and migraines. I know sometimes it’s hard to do what you have to do even when it’s to get something that you really want. It’s in those times that we have to make the tough decisions. Either we’re gonna throw caution to the wind, let the work pile up, and relish in the short-lived false sense of freedom or actually do what’s necessary to achieve true freedom because you’re actually closer to achieving what you want for yourself.
I promise you there is nothing more personally rewarding than feeling calm and excited when you conquered your resistance by doing what you committed to do. The reward is being accomplished and capable to get through your day with ease and drama free.
