How To Stay Positive & Inspired Every Day

How To Stay Positive & Inspired Every Day | A Girl, Obsessed

Life can be hard sometimes, and day-to-day struggles can easily put us into a melancholy that can be hard to break out of. For a creative, few things are worse than a lack of inspiration, positivity, and motivation. I often get asked how I stay inspired and keep a positive outlook, so today I thought I would answer that question and share my tips.

How To Stay Positive + Inspired

  • Surround yourself with what aesthetically pleases you
  • Always find the positive (aka the "silver lining") of every situation, good or bad
  • Every day, search out something new to inspire you (hello Pinterest)
  • Keep a gratitude journal, and each night write down what you're thankful for from the day
  • Count your blessings
  • Take some time each day to do something that brings you peace - Pray, meditate, relax, clear your mind, unplug from the internet, etc.
  • Pamper yourself regularly
  • Try something new, knowing that what matters is not the outcome, but the experience
  • Create - it doesn't matter what, just create something new
  • Listen to some of your favorite upbeat music - I can always count on the Spice Girls for when I need some extra pep
  • Read some of your favorite blogs/magazines/books for inspiration
  • Have a long chat with that friend who is always super motivating and uplifting
  • Watch some funny videos on Youtube or Vine
  • Learn something new
